Engineering Psychology is an interdisciplinary program offered jointly by the School of Engineering and the Department of Psychology. Engineering Psychology (and Human Factors Engineering, within the School of Engineering) applies knowledge of human behavior to the design of web sites, software, electronics and other equipment. Areas of application include the internet, computer systems, biomedical engineering, environmental design, and product design. Students in the School of Engineering or College of Liberal Arts will receive the Bachelor of Science degree from their respective colleges after meeting the general requirements set by each college.
Requirements for students whose first semester on campus was before Spring 2018 consist of 15 courses of at least 3 semester-hour credits distributed as follows (note that these students may also opt into the new requirements provided in the section below by emailing Professor Sommers, the Director of Undergraduate Studies, to express such intent):
Requirements for students whose first semester on campus was Fall 2018 or later consist of 15 courses of at least 3 semester-hour credits distributed as follows (note that no course can be used to fulfill multiple requirements):
Students scoring 4 or 5 on the Psychology AP exam, 6 or 7 on the International Baccalaureate (Higher Level) exam, or A or B on the GCE A-level exam earn credit for PSY 1. In other words, the student earns 3 semester-hour credits and does not need to take PSY 1 for the major. Students may substitute Child Study and Human Development 1 for PSY 1 for prerequisite purposes, but they must take an additional psychology course in order to reach the 11 courses required for the major.
