FALL 2018 COURSE ENROLMENT BEGINS AUGUST 01, 2018

The complete list of ALL ELITE (APS) graduate courses is here

Students who wish to enrol in 500-level courses are encouraged to do so as early as possible as seats are limited.

WINTER COURSE START DATES: Winter 2018 1000-level graduate courses begin the week of January 8 unless otherwise indicated. 500-level courses, and 1000-level courses associated with a 400-level course, begins January 4.

COURSE ADD/DROP DEADLINES:  2017 MIE course ADD and DROP dates are listed here.  

For All Reading Course (MIE 2002H, 2003H, 2004, 2005H) and M.Eng. Project (MIE 8888Y):

     ► ADD and DROP dates are 3 days before the posted SGS deadline

     ►All students must submit a Course ADD/DROP form to the graduate office (signed by student & supervisor) as follows:

COURSE OFFERINGS LEGEND Courses are designated to be taught Annually, Biennially (every other year), or Occasionally. However, instructor availability will sometimes affect when a course is next offered.

Courses designated Research are mainly intended for research stream graduate students, to prepare them with a theoretical background. Therefore, these courses tend to be technical and thus are unlikely to be "introductory" or "overview" courses.

This course introduces the design of intelligent robots – focusing on the principles and algorithms needed for robots to function in real world environments with people. Topics that will be covered include autonomy, social and rational intelligence, multi-modal sensing, biologically inspired and anthropomorphic robots, and human-robot interaction. Class discussions will centre on the interactive, personal, assistive and service robotics fields.

Pre-requisites: MIE404 and MIE444, or equivalent

Human Factors & Ergonomics

# Course Instructor Type Information

The objective of the course is to convey engineering thinking to non engineers, and specifically psychology graduate students, to support the Collaborative Specialization in Psychology and Engineering (PsychEng). The aim is for psychology students to be able to understand engineering language and common methods to be able to participate in design activities. The course will introduce the problem-solving focus of engineering work, including the use of: engineering assumptions, models (formation, interpretation, limits), codes / standards and heuristics, problem statements, design objectives and functions, and processes for selecting design alternatives. Considerable attention in the course is devoted to existing applications of psychology in engineering, e.g., in design theory and methodology and human factors, etc. The problem-solving perspective of engineering enables clarification of not just where psychological theories are applicable, but may also inform where such theories may require further development. For example, applying social psychological theories and models, e.g., Higgins’ Regulatory Focus Theory, to solve engineering problems can be quite challenging, and may add at least a physical dimension to such models. Projects in human factors, design methodology, and other areas of engineering that can benefit from application of psychology are offered to be completed as course projects. Finally, Psychologists are also guided on how to present their work to engineering audiences.
