“Human Factors” Science and Ergonomics
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.
