The HCII doctoral program offers an inspiring, collaborative, and supportive atmosphere for graduate study. PhD students with a range of backgrounds and interests are challenged with tracks allowing for specialization. HCII graduates have become the face of HCI across the world, pushing the boundaries of the kinds of problems that HCI addresses, and inventing the tools and methods used to address those problems. Our graduates carry out this mission through faculty positions in the top-ranked academic departments and positions in the major industry research laboratories.
