Our department hosts two distinct labs: The Human Factors and Ergonomics Lab, and the Automation Lab.
Human Factors and Ergonomics Lab
The Human Factors and Ergonomics laboratory is used mainly for instruction in IE 5338 (Human Engineering), IE 5331 (Industrial Ergonomics), IE 5335 (Advanced Occupational Environmental Hygiene Engineering), IE 5326 (Biomechanics) and IE 5391 (Independent Research in Ergonomics). It is equipped mainly for empirical studies in the assessment of physical workload analysis, physiological work stress, environmental work stress, and cognitive work assessment. These apparatuses are also used to conduct ergonomics research.
The Automation Lab is used mainly for instruction in IE 4325 (Automation and Robotics I), IE 4349 (Industrial Automation), IE 4378 (Intro to Unmanned Vehicle Systems), and IE5330 (Automation and Advanced Manufacturing).
