MA in Human Factors Engineering and Ergonomics

The study of human factors engineering and ergonomics (HFEE) is generally considered to have its origins during World War II. Over the ensuing decades, it has grown to encompass virtually every industry, including product design and development and design engineering. With rapid advances in science and technology, the discipline is becoming more important as employers and employees take a more proactive role to prevent workplace injuries, reduce health care costs, and optimize the interaction between people and systems to enhance safety, performance, usability, and satisfaction.
