    The ‘human factors’ in work environments and engineering design often dictate success or failure as technology becomes ever more complex and pervasive. Come and learn about the principles of human factors science as applied to engineering and correlated fields. Applying knowledge gained through scientific research in the discipline of human factors will help graduates provide benefits to enterprises, employees, and customers, improving the usability of products, and leading to more efficient work processes, safer environments, and more engaging product experiences.
