UQ Student Chapter of HFES (USA)

Welcome to HFES-UQ

Human Factors is concerned with improving the fit between humans and technology. Human factors professionals advocate the design of technology centred around human needs.

  • Promote the exchange of ideas and research between Australia and the international Human Factors community.
  • Increase awareness and understanding of Human Factors at The University of Queensland and in Australia.
  • Build relationships and encourage knowledge exchange between industry and academia.
