    Ergonomics and product design
    Ergonomic interventions the furniture manufacturing industry
    Biomechanics of work on labtop computers
    Modeling of trunk kinematics during lifting
    EMG-based evaluation of low back performance
    Effects of fatiguing overhead work on shoulder biomechanics / injury

    The Department of Industrial Engineering has a strong reputation in four
    areas in industrial engineering: ergonomics, systems analysis and
    optimization (operations research), production and manufacturing. It is
    generally ranked in the top ten industrial engineering departments in the
    United States.
