This book is the product of incremental syntheses of my courses in human-centered design (HCD) that I have prepared and given at the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT). These courses support the Ph.D. program in HCD that I also created in 2009 and am developing. Initially, my target was to create a program in aerospace human factors since I worked in this very specific domain for more than 30 years. For many reasons, I understood that the topic was broader than aerospace human factors and decided to focus on HCD in general. This book mirrors the program through my eyes. I used my background in human-computer interaction, cognitive science, mathematics and, of course, aerospace engineering.
