Ergonomics / Human Factors Programmes
Human Factors for Inclusive Design
This programme looks at human factors in design applications, including systems, workplaces, artefacts, information and communications devices.
The programme considers not only able-bodied adults but also the young, older adults, people with disabilities and cultural differences. User-centred methods are addressed as well as issues in the communication of ergonomics ideas (e.g. to designers). This programme is particularly suitable for those who have studied design.
