IDES 331 - Human Factors Seminar

3 credits
The object of this research-intensive course is to develop an ability to apply technology effectively to meet human needs through the study of human engineering principles for the design of products and equipment. Human anatomy, anthropometrics and motion, and strength of body components are considered as are sensory systems, human perception, and sensitivities. Lectures are complemented by laboratory experiments designed to teach students methods of testing and evaluating their own product design concepts in human terms. Concepts of scientific writing and reporting are demonstrated through the documentation of coursework.

Prerequisites IDES*301, IDES*232, IDES*321, and IDES*332

Open to Industrial Design majors only.
