Human Factors Engineering (Engineering Psychology) Minor

A minor in Human Factors Engineering for non-ENP majors is intended for students interested in the field but already too far along to switch, or for those who are simply interested in gaining a basic understanding of human factors engineering.

It is an interdisciplinary program, which allows both engineering students and liberal arts students (except Psychology and Engineering Psychology majors) to gain some insight into the area of Human Factors and Ergonomics. The focus of the minor is on the inter-relationship between human and technology, from a human-centered perspective. A total of five courses are required in order to complete the minor program: ENP61 (Introduction to Human Factors and Ergonomics), PSY53 (Engineering Psychology), PSY31 (Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences), ENP161 (Human Factors in Systems Design), and PSY/ENP99 (an approved research project or internship). Details are available from the Department.
