Department of Occupational Safety and Health
The Department of Occupational Safety and Health was established in 2002 to provide training for students with professional knowledge in occupational safety and health managements as well as in multidisciplinary applications. The department offers two different levels of degree programs, which are four-year bachelor’s degree and two-year master of science degree. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the students in four-year undergraduate programs are qualified for nationwide license examine to be certified occupational safety management specialists or occupational health management specialists. Meanwhile, some graduates pursue careers in OSH consultants, government jobs, and safety/health researches. The two-year master program provides students with opportunities to acquire skills for higher levels of safety/health management and OSH-related business, as well as to prepare them for a research career and a further degree in the safety/health field.
The curriculum of Department of Occupational Safety and Health offers a series of science lectures leading for their applied knowledge to safety/health management. At lower classes, students will receive comprehensively training in science education with safety/health application, including calculus, physics, chemistry, statistics, work physiology, biomedicine, industrial toxicology, epidemiology, safety engineering, industrial ventilation, noise and vibration, and etc. Students at junior and senior years will be trained in safety/health management including ergonomics, toxicology, biological monitoring, health management and practice, workplace environmental control engineering, occupational safety and health seminar, and an 8-week of summer internship will be conducted at the accredited companies or the government agencies.
