What is HFES?
The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society Student Chapter at The Ohio State University is organized to serve the needs of students at The Ohio State University who have professional and/or research interests in human factors/ergonomics (HF/E). Its purpose is to promote and advance the understanding of the HF/E involved in the design, manufacture, and use of machines, systems, environments and devices of all kinds through the multidisciplinary interchange of knowledge and methodology in the relevant sciences, and engineering and design disciplines.
Our organization was founded to:
- Foster a greater social and academic community amongst human factors researchers and students at the university.
- Create a relationship between the university human factors community and members at the state and national level.
- Keep members up to date on research and practice within the human factors community through guest speakers and site visits to area practitioners.
