What is human systems engineering and user experience?
Human systems engineering is a field devoted to designing, developing, implementing and evaluating systems. These complex systems are consistent with human capabilities and limitations. User experience (UX) is a subdivision of human systems engineering. UX designers focus on improving the usability of computer interfaces. They also make human-computer interactions more accessible and pleasurable.
Human systems engineering is a multidisciplinary field. This field incorporates insights from computer science, behavioral science, engineering and social psychology. These disciplines enable engineers and designers to make technologies that work for humans. The Bachelor of Science in human systems engineering gives students a deeper understanding of human performance science. The UX concentration takes a closer look at the design, development and evaluation of useful, usable and desirable human-computer interfaces.
Can I become a UX engineer or UX designer with this degree?
Yes, you can become a UX engineer or UX designer with the UX concentration of the bachelor’s degree in human systems engineering. User experience is a rapidly growing field on the lookout for professionals. If you want to become a UX engineering professional, this program strengthens your skills in research, analysis and design. Additionally, you’ll receive training on effective communication practices. This may give you the skill set you need to lead teams and collaborate with clients and technical personnel.
Students with this UX degree, focused on human systems integration, can find jobs in diverse fields. These fields may include, but are not limited to:
Will my human systems UX degree say 'online'?
No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.” That’s because ASU Online students learn from the same faculty and receive the same course content as in-person students receive.
UX and engineering courses
Our user experience degree takes a look at various human factors related to complex systems and machines. Course topics may include examining how humans interact with medical systems, such as reading prescription labels. You may also learn how automobiles are being developed and how humans interact with automated devices and systems. Further, you may explore human factors in sports.
What can I do with a human systems and UX degree?
You’ll have diverse career opportunities with a human systems and UX degree. You might explore a career as a game designer or interface designer. You could also become a human factors engineer or human systems integrator. This program is also a great segway for graduate work in psychology, engineering, design, communication and user experience.
