Teams consist of a few students with a faculty mentor, and projects can range from conceptual design and research to high-fidelity prototyping and development.
Back in 1975, Alan Newell and Herbert Simon decreed the discipline of computer science and the focus of the School of Computer Science to be “The study of all phenomena surrounding computing machines,” which is where we got our roots. From day one, the HCII has collaborated extensively other University departments and other research partners outside CMU. Our interdisciplinary, collaborative mission makes us the ideal partner for researchers and industry professionals seeking creative, impactful, and innovative solutions. Today, we engage with collaborators ranging from governmental and healthcare organizations, to small startups, multinational corporations, and individuals in the developing world, to understand and create technology that improves human life.
