- S 3 cr. LEC 2 LAB 1
- PREREQUISITE: WRIT 101W; EIND 142 for IE majors.
- Covers analysis and design methods for occupational tasks to improve productivity,
workplace health, and safety. Topic areas include fundamental aspects of work standards
development, ergonomics, and industrial safety. The labs demonstrate example applications
of these topic areas.
- S 3 cr. LEC 2 RCT 1
- PREREQUISITE: EIND 313 for IE majors; EIND 413 or consent of instructor for non-majors.
- This course demonstrates the processes of integrating the psychology of the user into
the design process as well as conducting usability testing to evaluate the design
success. It emphasizes the need to understand the needs, capabilities, and emotions
of the user to produce usable and desirable designs.

- PREREQUISITE: IE major, one of EIND 313, 410, 413 (or equivalent); Non-major - EGEN
310 or instructor permission.
- Usability engineering is an iterative design process that applies human-centered design
principles integrated with user participation (usability testing) to produce usable,
desirable, and sustainable products, sevices and systems. This project-based course
will use a seminar format with industry guest-speakers and case studies.

- Advanced topics and methods in ergonomics and human factors engineering as applied
to human error and safety in complex systems. Basic and applied issues of human error
and safety are explored through seminars, laboratory demonstrations and case studies.
