Knowledge of ‘Ergonomics/ Human Factors Engineering’ is of utmost necessity for automotive design and engineering to achieve optimal compatibility between occupants and vehicle components in terms of physical, cognitive and environmental aspects. Although good number of Design and Engineering Schools in India are offering courses on Automobile Design, Transportation Design and Automobile Engineering but there are less focus on Automotive Ergonomics due to lack of resources and trained faculty members. The current elective would not only help the students and teachers involved in Automobile Design and Engineering to overcome the aforesaid limitations but also would be beneficial for the engineers and designers engaged in automotive sectors.
INTENDED AUDIENCE: UG and PG students of Industrial Engineering
PREREQUISITES: Basic understanding of ‘Applied Ergonomics'
