Master of Science in
Human Factors

Today’s rapid technological progression demands an in-depth understanding of how systems and people operate together, with an emphasis on minimizing human error in order to improve operational efficiency, effectiveness and safety. Embry-Riddle’s Human Factors graduate and post-graduate programs prepare its students to ensure that human-centered concerns, both psychological and physiological, are given due consideration during the design and development processes of systems, products, and work environments.

Students will combine learned psychological principles and engineering fundamentals to maximize interaction of humans with machines, as well as human performance issues. Graduates emerge from the program ready for a career in research, analysis, or design.

The Master of Science in Human Factors offers a distinct focus on the aviation / aerospace industry.

At ERAU, students in the Human Factors program learn amid industry experts and gain access to a wide variety of training facilities capable of supporting research program objectives.

The availability of ongoing projects and research across the campus provides students with opportunity for collaborative engagement.

Among the many labs and facilities you will use are the Human Computer Interaction Lab, System Engineering Lab, and Human Cognition Center.

The department offers broad research opportunities with an emphasis on quality, applied research. It specializes in human performance research and is proud of its reputation for successfully completing challenging projects.
