The Graduate Industrial Hygiene (GIH) program was designed to provide DOD career professionals with relevant graduate education in the principles of industrial hygiene. This program was developed considering guidelines established by ABET and subject areas from the Certified Industrial Hygienist exam from the American Board of Industrial Hygiene. In addition, the GIH program was developed in coordination with the Environmental Engineering and Science (GES) degree program. Both programs were motivated by a request from the AF Bioenvironmental Engineering (BE) career field. The curriculum includes department core course offerings in statistics, risk analysis, and sustainable design. The program curriculum includes course offerings in industrial hygiene anticipation/recognition/evaluation/control, radiation protection, environmental transport, epidemiology, physiology, and toxicology.
