Advising & Program Contacts
Program advisors are assigned upon admission based on your area of interest and availability. Advisors must be members of the graduate faculty who are approved to advise graduate students. Once you become familiar with our faculty, you will have the option to change advisors with the approval of the director of graduate studies if the new advisor is available and willing.
If you are having trouble finding the information you are looking for please contact the Human Factors and Ergonomics director of graduate studies and the graduate program coordinator.
Based on your graduate program, you may also need to form an examining committee as part of your degree. This committee is formed by each student in consultation with their advisor. You should discuss appropriate examining committee members with your advisor, then make an appointment to ask the proposed committee members if they would be willing and available to serve on your examining committee.
Learn more about changing advisors and forming examining committees in the Human Factors and Ergonomics Handbook.
Sample Program Plans
Use the sample program plans to help inform your decisions about what courses to take next, track your progress, and achieve timely graduation.
In addition to using the sample plans, it is important that you frequently reference the University’s Graduate Planning & Audit System (GPAS), which allows you to track your coursework and requirements.
