Human Factors and Ergonomics in Engineering Curricula

Pere Ponsa

Towards the training of future engineers as intellectual leaders, skilled and well prepared professionals who are creative, know how to work in team and to communicate with other areas, is necessary a framework where the ergonomic design is the core and is surrounded by technology, human factors and market opportunities. In the domain of scientific research, the IEEE Society has been developing the Human System Interaction International Conference aiming at enhancing the research activities in many areas such as electronics, robotics, computer science, education and human factors.
