Master of Science in Experimental Psychology

Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)
Campus Full time Part time September 2017 USA Rochester + 1 more

The master of science program in applied experimental and engineering psychology emphasizes the role of human behavior in the use of technology. [+]

The master of science degree program in applied experimental and engineering psychology emphasizes the role of human behavior and performance in both simple and complex human-machine systems. The departments of psychology, industrial and systems engineering, and information technology all contribute to the teaching of courses in the program. Engineering psychology examines the capabilities and limitations to sense, perceive, store, and process information and how these human factors impact human interactions with technology. This knowledge is applied to the design, use, and maintenance of human-machine systems. Students are trained in both research methods of experimental psychology and application of the results in contemporary problems in industry. Engineering psychologists are interested in how and why performance might be changed through the use of technology. For instance, a new interface for controlling the radio in a vehicle may cause errors because a control is too sensitive for human-motor performance or because the driver is confused as to how to use the interface.The program prepares students to function as effective engineering psychologists in industrial, governmental, or consulting organizations. The program also provides a foundation for further advanced academic study in human factors or experimental psychology. Admission requirementsApplicants to this program are expected to have 20 quarter credit hours (or 15 semester hours) of course work in undergraduate psychology or a related field (e.g., engineering, computer science, information technology), including one course in experimental psychology and another in statistics. Admission decisions are based on:... [-]
