Anywhere there is a person using a system, human factors engineering concepts inevitably apply. This hands-on, multidisciplinary training program—entering its 62nd year in 2021—provides essential user interface design experience for anyone looking to improve their organization through proven evaluation techniques. The first week of the course focuses on human factors concepts, offering a broad survey of human factors topics important to designers and researchers. Human-computer interaction (HCI) and intelligent system design are the focus for week two, providing an overview of HCI issues through workshops that lay the foundation for effective human-computer systems. Engineers, psychologists, medical professionals, managers, and others interested in human factors, ergonomics, human-computer interaction, or usability are candidates for the course. Attendees often work in industry, government, or the military.
The U-M Center for Ergonomics has a distinguished record of research in the areas of Cognitive Ergonomics, Biomechanics, and Work Physiology and Safety, along with extensive resources including state-of-the-art laboratories, test equipment, and computer systems. Week one runs July 26-31 and week two runs August 2-6, 2021.
