Student Chapters

The Society is proud of its student chapters at major schools around the world! Our outstanding student chapters listed below sponsor many activities throughout the year to encourage new participation in the discipline. The Society looks forward to expanding this list of premier schools, so check here often for updates.

Each year, HFES recognizes individual students and student chapters for outstanding contributions to the human factors/ergonomics discipline or to the Society. The submission deadline for 2019 was June 25.  Please watch for the 2020 announcement.
