Extending the expertise of its internationally recognized Human Factors Engineering program, Tufts has designed this certificate program to train the next generation of computer programmers for tomorrow's complex programming challenges.

With hardware processing power increasing and software development techniques improving, the user interface is quickly becoming the key bottleneck in developing computer products that meet market needs.

When the human-computer interface does not reflect the needs of the intended users, products fail in the marketplace and enormous sums of money are spent on documentation, help lines, and training courses to overcome the difficulties of running programs. Much of this difficulty can be avoided with proper attention to both the physical and psychological constraints of the user.

The program is open to individuals with a bachelor's degree and is especially useful for computer programmers, web designers, software engineers, human factors professionals, user interface designers, and others who wish to develop or enhance their user interface design and implementation skills.

This four-course certificate is offered in collaboration with the Tufts Department of Psychology, the School of Engineering, and the Department of Occupational Therapy at Tufts.
