The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society is a multidisciplinary professional
association of more than 4500 persons in the United States and throughout the
world. Its members include psychologists, engineers, designers, and scientists,
all of whom have a common interest in designing systems and equipment to be
safe and effective for the people who operate and maintain them.
Members are employed in industries, universities and colleges, government
agencies, consulting firms, military research centers, public utilities, and
other settings. More than 40% hold a doctoral degree, a third hold a master's
degree, and about 15% have a bachelor's degree (as the highest degree held in
all categories). Students make up about 15% of the total membership.
Anyone with an interest in the field may join HFES by completing a membership
application. HFES offers several
categories of membership, all of which have the same
member benefits. Full Members may also vote and hold office; see the
membership categories for details about joining as a Full Member.
