Industrial Hygiene and Safety B.S.

The specialization in Safety or Industrial Hygiene prepare students in the recognition, evaluation, and control of workplace hazards. The curriculum provides a broad academic background in the sciences with emphasis on health and safety applications. These two specializations at the bachelor and masters level are designated by the Institute for Safety & Health Management (ISHM) and therefore graduates of these specializations can now apply and become Associate Safety & Health Managers (ASHM). Our graduates can take the CSHM exam two years after graduation, which leads to a savings of three years.

  • According to the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP), CETs must have 270 hours of training in safety…So we are using that standard for our students as well.
  • Your internship/coop/position should have a 270-hr RECENT (within the calendar year) field experience. Note: Dr. Akladios can send you some leads, or talk to employers Dr. Akladios is in contact with, but it is Your responsibility to obtain your own internship/Co-op for yourself.
  • You will need to receive approval from the instructor regarding the field/type of internship you are planning to take
  • For Fall 2017, the required hours will increase to 300 hours.
  • You will need to send Magdy Akladios your supervisor's contact information (ASAP) so Dr. Akladios can establish communication with him/her to determine your workload, progress, and tasks.  

If you have any questions please contact Magdy Akladios.
