Safety System Design and Evaluation

Examining how systems are developed is a critical feature of the human factors discipline. The system-design process must examine each element of both the specific technology being created and the cognitive and physical responses of those using it. The themes of interdisciplinary research and systems-based design are the foundation of the UI's interdisciplinary human factors research program, which fosters collaboration between the Colleges of Engineering, Medicine, Public Health, Liberal Arts and Sciences and research centers under the vice president for research.
