Community Engagement

All MS and MPH students in the Industrial Hygiene program are required to participate in a field experience, which provides an opportunity to learn first-hand about an organization and its operations. Typical field experiences offer a variety in activities ‒ a mixture of office and in-plant work ‒ that fully encompass the responsibilities of an industrial hygienist. Many of these field experiences are paid internships.

Recent field experiences for Industrial Hygiene program students have occurred at locations such as 3M, Honeywell, Metro Transit, the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Minnesota OSHA Workplace Safety Consultation, and the university’s Department of Environmental Health and Safety.
