Degrees Offered: Master of Science in Occupational Safety and Health Engineering

The curriculum has been designed in accordance with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), which sponsors the program. Through course work and research, individuals are exposed to all of the principal areas of concern to the entry-level safety professional, including how technology and hazardous materials affect the safety of the workplace.

NJIT's program is just one of a handful offered in the United States and the only master's-level program in New Jersey. NIOSH offers a limited number of stipends and tuition remission grants to qualified students.
