HFES Student Chapter wins gold award for second straight year

The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society has announced that the UW-Madison HFES student chapter will receive a gold award for the second consecutive year. The gold-level award is bestowed based on student excellence in multiple categories such as outreach and collaboration. The UW-Madison student chapter is comprised mostly of students from industrial and systems engineering, but chapter president Vindhya Venkatraman says one of the things that sets the UW-Madison student chapter apart is the mutually beneficial learning that occurs between the chapter members and the community. “Either on campus or outside of campus,” she says, “we always meet people who are extremely interested in the application of knowledge about human capabilities to the design of technology. I think the fact that there’s such an interested community makes us want to go out more, to talk to people and learn from them.”
