I took some classes for my masters in human factors
engineering - or more commonly called ergonomics - through
Embry-Riddle. Listed below are the classes
for which I produced written products.
ASCI602: The Air Transportation System
A study of air transportation as part of a global, multi-modal transportation system. The course reviews the evolution of the technological, social, environmental, and political aspects of this system since its inception at the beginning of the 20th century. The long-term and short-term effects of deregulation, energy shortages, governmental restraints, and national and international issues are examined. Passenger and cargo transportation, as well as military and private aircraft modes are studied in relation to the ever-changing
transportation requirements. Source - ERAU Online.

ASCI604: Human Factors in Aviation / Aerospace Industry
This course presents an overview of the importance of the human role in all aspects of the aviation and aerospace industries. It will emphasize the issues, problems, and solutions of unsafe acts, attitudes, errors, and deliberate actions attributed to human behavior and the roles supervisors and management personnel play in these actions. The course will study the human limitations in the light of human engineering, human reliability, stress, medical standards, drug abuse, and human physiology. The course will discuss human behavior as it relates to the aviator's adaptation to the flight environment as well as the entire aviation/aerospace industry's role in meeting the aviator's unique needs.
