Class Info

Provides a fundamental understanding of the human factors that must be considered in the design and engineering of complex aviation, space, and medical systems. Focuses on the derivation of human engineering design criteria from sensory, motor, and cognitive sources. Students, individually and in teams, apply design principles from topic areas including displays, controls, ergonomics, manual control, automation, basic experimental design, and human-computer interaction. Includes aviation, space, and medical incident case presentations and interactive projects. Graduate students also complete an additional research-oriented project with a final written report and oral presentation.

This class has 6.041, and 16.09 as prerequisites.
