ETSM 4335. Human Factors & Ergonomics. 3 Hours.
Students learn the foundations of human-centric engineering to design products, processes, and systems to optimize human well-being and overall system performance. Students apply principles of anthropometrics, the musculoskeletal system, biomechanics, psychophysics, work physiology, and engineering safety to common problems faced by safety professionals in work and systems design. Emphasis is on design and analysis of occupational systems and consumer products.
Prerequisite: MATH 1314 or MATH 1316 and Junior standing.
