Human factors engineering aims to improve human interaction with systems by enhancing safety (reducing the risk of injury), performance (increasing productivity), and satisfaction (acceptance, comfort). Students will learn and be able to identify critical human factors in a system that affect safety, performance, and satisfaction. Students will apply course concepts to their work environment. The work environment must contain some phases of the design process such as stakeholder analysis, conceptual design, risk analysis, detail design, manufacturing, testing, validation, or recycling. Students may not receive credit for both ENGD 302 and EGMT 540.
