This subject is complementary to other existing courses that tackle issues related to design. Thus students across all three faculties and the graduate schools will find this course applicable to them. Since SFC aims to prepare students to engage all kind of issues related to the society, Ergonomics will be a good addition to the knowledge of the graduates.
