Summer 2018 Research for Undergraduates in Human-Computer Interaction at
Carnegie Mellon University
The Human Computer Interaction Institute is looking for talented and motivated
undergraduates to join us for Summer 2018 conducting novel research at the edge
of design, behavioral sciences, and computing technology.
Students in our summer research program will work closely with mentors. Some
example topics of research for Summer 2018 include:
- Smart classroom sensors
- Software engineering for HCI and security
- Designing and developing educational games
- Developing tools for citizen science
- Designing better systems for the future of work
- Improving online health support groups
- Building smartphone privacy tools
- Building tools to help people with disabilities be crowd workers
The program runs for 10 weeks, from May 29 to Aug 3. Students receive a stipend
and housing supplement.
Ideal applicants are rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors, with strong skills
in one or more of visual or interaction design, behavioral sciences, or
software or hardware development.
Students from traditionally underrepresented groups in computing or who do not
have access to research facilities at their home institution are particularly
encouraged to apply.
Previous research experience is not a requirement.
The application deadline is Tuesday February 20th 2018, with decisions sent out
by March 15. For more information and our application form, please see:
