The Usabilathon is a platform to showcase and promote the field of human factors through active partnerships between academia and industry. Through this partnership, up-and-coming graduate professionals in Human Factors and in UX related fields get the opportunity to tackle real world client-driven problems. Over one day, participants design, iterate, and develop solutions to these pressing problems. By participating in the Usabilathon, students showcase their skills to some of leading companies in the Human Factors/UX space.
