Major

Engineering psychology is an empirically based discipline that requires cadets to critically and systematically apply their knowledge of human behavior to the design of complicated systems.

Engineering psychology bridges the disciplines of experimental psychology and engineering by providing cadets with a strong foundational knowledge of the psychology of human performance and how these principles of behavior can be used to engineer and evaluate more effective systems.
