Human Systems Integration (362)

Human Systems Integration (HSI) - Curriculum 362

Human Systems Integration (HSI) is an interdisciplinary program that emphasizes human considerations as a priority in systems design and acquisition, to reduce life cycle costs, and improve total system performance. HSI has been divided into several distinct domains that include human factors engineering, manpower, personnel, training, human survivability, health hazards, system safety, and habitability. HSI is based on the understanding that people (operators, maintainers, and support personnel) are critical elements of the system and that a human-centered design perspective promotes system effectiveness, safety, and cost savings. This degree will provide students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to be effective leaders in the assessment, design, testing, and management of a total human machine system throughout its life cycle.

Completion of this curriculum results in a Master of Science in Human Systems Integration and qualifies an officer as an Human Systems Integration Subspecialist with a subspecialty code of 4600P. The curriculum sponsor is N12/13.
