Human Factors Engineering is more relevant than ever for a number of reasons. A lot of designs are very good designs in terms of processes, in terms of product, but they fail because of usability and because the user is not able to operate it in the way the designer looked at it. So this course will equip a designer with the skills and with the techniques which are necessary to introduce the user in its design phase. Human Factors Engineering is delivered by a team of 3 academics. I deliver the academic side looking at an individual: how we see an individual, Psychophysics and Anthropometry. The second part of the course is delivered by a professional psychology professor who specialises in Industrial Psychology. And the third part is delivered by a practising engineer and consultant who is a human factors engineering expert in the UK context. So the student will learn how to minimise human factor related issues at all levels from product, process and organisation. The first part of the course is about sensitising the students to different issues associated with the human factors they should be looking at while designing products, processes and organisations. The second part are the tools and techniques available for the analysis of individuals, for the analysis of workplaces, and for the analysis of organisations. In terms of minimising injury, in terms of minimising loss, and looking at the ways which can lead towards improvement. Human Factors Engineering as a course is part of two important degrees in Aberdeen. One is MSc Process Safety and the second is MSc Safety and Reliability Engineering. Both sets of degrees are intended for engineers or professionals who have either a strong background in engineering, or they have significant work experience to cover their background. But Human Factors Engineering as a course, as a postgraduate certificate course is suitable for not only engineers, but also for all kinds of designers. These can be people working on the design of layout, design of workplaces, and design of buildings where different human users are there, even the design of products.
