EGR 101: Foundations of Engineering Design Project I
This course introduces engineering as a profession, critical thinking in engineering design, modeling, team dynamics, and technical communication.
Prerequisite(s): first-time freshman or maximum 45 hours
HSE 424: Human Automation Interaction
This course introduces students to current perspectives and techniques for modeling human-automation interaction to improve system design and system integration. Basic principles in human-technology interaction and key concepts in supervisory control automation will be discussed, with a third of the semester spent on promising approaches for integrating increasingly autonomous automation such as adaptive algorithms and embodied agents into human systems.
Prerequisite(s): HSE 101 or PSY 101; HSE 290 or PSY 290; HSE 324 or PSY 324; or consent of instructor.
HSE 425/525: Human Factors in Medical Systems
This course is designed to introduce graduate students to different perspectives and techniques in medical human factors and health systems engineering to improve system design and system integration in healthcare. We cover basic principles in human-technology interaction, macroergonomics, and job design in the context of healthcare, health organizations, and health technologies. This course emphasizes synthesis of reading materials, problem scoping, and communication skills through writing and discussion.
Prerequisite(s): degree- or non degree-seeking graduate student
HSE 531: Data Analytics
This course is designed to introduce graduate students and senior undergraduates to principles and methods of analyzing human subjects data. The objectives of this course are to improve analytical and communication skills for scientific research, and to build confidence in wrangling, analyzing, and visualizing human subjects data in R, a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics.
Prerequisite(s): degree- or nondegree-seeking graduate student
