IE graduation requirements include at least one human factors elective and I was wondering about suggestions for good ones to take. I’m pretty sure everyone has to take 349 as the intro course so other than that what are some human factors classes you would recommend?
I highly recommend ISyE 555 – Human Performance and Accident Causation. It was a really interesting class that centered around human factors and making design changes to help humans succeed at the task safely. This course specifically focused on aircraft accidents and how the survivability of a crash has increased drastically due to design changes. Highly recommended!
ISyE 662 was an interesting class, as it addressed physical disabilities and how they are addressed and accommodated for in everyday life tasks. It was very well taught and the curriculum was engaging.
