Minor - Human Systems Integration

The Human Systems Integration (HSI) minor: (1) studies the cognitive, perceptual, and performance capabilities and limitations of people as they interact with sociotechnical systems and devices (e.g., energy and transportation systems, computers, mobile devices, workplaces); and (2) seeks to apply evidence-based principles in the development of human-centered systems and devices. The HSI minor aims to provide students with interdisciplinary training to prepare to them to work in cross-functional teams to optimize human capabilities, increase system efficiency, reliability, and safety, and minimize error.
