Knowledge of human factors helps better match user capabilities and system demand. Further, understanding human capabilities helps designers generate more veridical models of human behavior. Applying principles of human factors can create more effective simulator training systems. This modeling and simulation certificate provides students with a focus on psychological principles that address end-user capabilities with models of human behavior.
Human Factors doctoral students can efficiently complete this certificate. Those interested in gaining a certificate in modeling and simulation only need to complete an additional course, which surveys the Modeling and Simulation discipline.
