The Human Systems Engineering - Health Systems MSc program offered at Arizona State University provides current and future managers with the technical expertise to lead efficient health care systems by identifying needs through system modeling, field research and analytics to improve existing health care systems. 


This Human Systems Engineering - Health Systems MSc program offered at Arizona State University also attunes students to perform research and develop innovative approaches to transform health care from reactive to proactive systems, which reflect National Institute of Health initiatives.

Career Opportunities

Health care is a growing sector of the economy, accounting for almost 18% of the U.S. Gross Domestic Product in 2020 ( Recent changes to the health care landscape at the federal level have led to increasing demand for measurable increases in efficiency and effectiveness of care delivery. To that end, technologies are deployed to manage, track and measure treatment effectiveness, patient satisfaction, provider reimbursement and process improvement, all of which require understanding of the human system and the complex processes involved in this work. Thus, human systems engineering tools and techniques can create efficiencies in all aspects of care delivery in which a human is involved to improve system performance. Related to human systems engineers in health care, employment of industrial engineers is projected to grow 10% from 2016- 2026, which is also faster than average for all occupations (Bureau of Labor Statistics).
