Human Systems Engineering Program (HSEP)
Humans are part of almost all the systems that we design, whether in manufacturing, construction, transportation, communications or services. Thus, it is essential that we have a scientific understanding of the properties of human capability and limitations to be able to apply them to the design, development, and deployment of systems and services to ensure their optimum performance and safety. Due to this, the Human Systems Engineering Program (HSEP) was created by the Department of Industrial Engineering of the College of Engineering and Agro-industrial Technology (CEAT) at UP Los Baños.
HSEP conducts studies on theoretical and applied ergonomics, human factors, methods engineering, and occupational safety and health to address the human element needs for all system types.
