Welcome to the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES), University of Waterloo Student Chapter

Its purpose is to promote and advance the understanding of the human factors involved in the design, manufacture, and use of machines, systems, environments and devices of all kinds. This is accomplished through the interchange of knowledge and methodology in the behavioural, biological, and physical sciences and in industrial, computer science and other relevant engineering disciplines.
