This course considers the physiological and psychological interactions of humans as part of the complex socio - technical system of aviation operations. The course covers key aspects of human performance such as information processing and cognition, ergonomics, automation and Threat and Error Management (TEM). The course also explores leadership and teamwork and engages students by placing them in an aviation context through the use of appropriate case studies.
