We are the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University

Human-Computer Interaction Institute and Carnegie Mellon University.

Through rigor and creativity, we solve the right problems with the right tools for the right reasons. In doing so, we develop artifacts, services and systems that improve people’s lives.

MHCI graduates often rave about the real-world experience they gain through our capstone project course. Working in teams of four to six, students collaborate with an industry sponsor to innovate, improve or modify a new or existing human-to-machine technology. Recent MHCI capstone sponsor Bloomberg captured their experience with our students in the video on the right. (Interested in becoming a capstone sponsor?
