Department of Ergonomics and Psychology
The course provides an overview of the application of simulation methods in the diagnosis of human physiologi-cal characteristics and psychological abilities, as well as in the prediction of their suitability for the job, and in the development of their sensorimotor and cognitive abilities and skills. During the teaching of the subject, the in-troductory theoretical methodological knowledge is supplemented by case studies and site visits presenting var-ious examples of the use of simulators, mainly in the field of transport and process control.
- They have comprehensive knowledge of the applications of simulators used in the HR and healthcare industries.
- They have comprehensive knowledge of the theoretical and methodological possibilities of human per-formance measurement and evaluation.
- They have comprehensive knowledge of the basics of the use of simulators in cognitive psychology, such as the regulation of cognitive behavior: principles, models, practical consequences.
- They are familiar with the possibilities of simulator application in the development of abilities and skills, in the development of cognitive strategies and about the possibilities of using the simulator in group de-cision situations.
- They are able to implement his / her knowledge of simulators and simulation.
- They are able to recognize which abilities and skills can be tested with the help of simulation and simula-tor.
- They are able to propose complex simulation solutions taking into account different needs.
- They are characterized by sensitivity to human needs. They are characterized by a user-centric thinking and approach.
- They are characterized by continuous learning skills, broad and thorough education, interdisciplinary in-terest.
- They are characterized by a system-level thinking and approach.
- They are characterized by a strong critical and self-critical sense.
Autonomy and responsibility
- To solve various professional problems, they apply user-centric methods and techniques independently or on the basis of professional guidance.
- They are open to independently monitor technical, technological, economic, legal and human develop-ments in his / her field.
- In order to a– suggested literature to achieve the goal, they mobilize their theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in an autonomous way, if necessary in cooperation with other members of an in-terdisciplinary team.
