Engineering psychology uses scientific knowledge about the perceptual, cognitive, and behavioral capabilities of humans to specify the design and use of human-machine systems (such as equipment, environments, tasks, jobs, and systems) for productive, safe, comfortable, and effective human use. In this course, you’ll learn about the capabilities and limitations of humans and how this knowledge informs engineering design principles of displays, controls, physical environments, human error, and automation. You’ll also get the opportunity to use what you’re learning by working with local farms and gardens to improve the safety and efficiency of their agricultural work.
