This course is intended for students in the human systems engineering concentration and provides the experience of applying systems engineering principles and skills learned in the formal courses to a specific human systems project that is suggested by the student and is presented in a formal proposal. The product of the human systems project is a final report, as well as interim reports and an oral presentation to permit review of the project objectives and approach. A student typically has a mentor who is a member of the systems engineering or human systems concentration faculty. The systems engineering chair, a systems engineering mentor, and a human systems concentration mentor review student proposals and reports. The total time required for this course is comparable to the combined class and study time for the formal courses.

Course prerequisite(s): 

Completion of all courses applicable to the human systems engineering master's degree.
