Tracks

HFE  |  Human Factors EngineeringUndergraduate Programs

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, behaviour or cognition, to analyse human behavioural and physiological data, and to use these processes and data to improve the usability, safety and comfort of products, services or systems. The track provides courses covering fundamental knowledge in human factors engineering and human performance, as well as research methods. Our curriculum aims to prepare students to solve real world design problems by applying rigorous engineering methodologies.
