“UNIST student of Design and Human Engineering is unique by its joint program of Design and Human Factors, with an engineering basis. Design is noways the driving force behind most innovations: bringing solutions to real-world problems, but always based on a human-centered approach. Within our school you can go for an industrial design engineering problem, for a human factors engineering program and for a combination of both.”
The goal of Industrial Design track is to foster creative designers who can lead the innovative design of product and product-service systems. It provides interdisciplinary courses on design knowledge.
The goal of Human Factors Engineering track is to educate students to understand human abilities, capabilities and the human centred design process. To achieve this goal, students learn to design experimental studies that investigate human performance.
The Creative Design Engineering programme is designed to cultivate design practitioners who can lead the creative innovation and perform the whole product development process by understanding design thinking and technical realization.
The department of Human Factors Engineering focuses on knowledge about human abilities, capabilities and behaviors and how this can inform the design and development of innovative products, processes and systems.
