Carnegie Mellon's Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Human-Computer Interaction program is an opportunity for undergraduate students to spend a summer working with some of the world's leading Human-Computer Interaction faculty researchers. A number of projects are available in diverse areas at the intersection of psychology, computer science, human-computer interfaces and language technologies. Accepted students will work closely with CMU faculty and researchers on research problems with the potential for publication and significant impact on the future practice of interaction design.
Some of our past summer research students have gone on to join top Ph.D. programs in human-computer interaction, such as those at CMU, UC Berkeley, and the University of Washington; have published papers in major conferences; have won NSF graduate research fellowships; and have placed in the CRA's Outstanding Undergraduate Award and ACM's student research competitions. We are excited to see what you can do!
