Work Smarter, Not Harder

How do humans interact with systems? And how can those systems be optimized for performance and efficiency? At the Center for Human Systems Engineering, we try to answer these questions and much more.


Center for Human Systems Engineering

The Center for Human Systems Engineering (CHSE) designs systems, processes, and technological interfaces to enhance performance, safety, productivity, and satisfaction. CHSE has five thematic areas: (1) Work Environment Design, (2) Human-Systems Integration, (3) Extended Reality, (4) Process Modeling and Improvement, and (5) Human-centric AI.

CHSE supports a variety of usability and simulation studies, rapid prototyping of new and updated designs, eye-tracking technology, virtual reality experiments, collaborative robot applications, ergonomics assessments, and a variety of other projects.

Our Faculty

“Industrial Engineering is just fun. Our students embed with companies, observe and interview end-users to understand their work practices, and then redesign a current product or application.”

- Dr. Faisal Aqlan, Co-Director of the Center for Human Systems Engineering

Capability Fully Geared for Research

The center has everything needed for use in human factors and ergonomics research and instruction. Lab equipment includes surface electromyography, electro goniometers, a cerebral oximeter, a light meter, a lumbar motion meter, and a noise dosimeter.
