Human Factors Awareness (HFA)
This course conveys fundamental principles of human factors, which is the science and practice of understanding the fit between people, the environment and the systems they work with.
In this course, human-system fit is analysed from perceptual, cognitive, social, and organisational points of view. The course introduces key ideas underlying cognitive systems engineering, which views human-system fit as a complex adaptive system. During practical sessions, students review fundamental principles underlying human factors principles, and analyse and assess case studies.
