Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) pervades every aspect of life in the 21st century. From augmented reality to social media to autonomous vehicles to crowdsourcing, the study of HCI impacts all of us. The Center for HCI at Virginia Tech is a world leader in HCI research, both designing interactive experiences and studying human interaction with and through technology. Learn more about CHCI.

CHCI’s transdisciplinary community performs cutting-edge HCI research and educates the next generation of HCI scholars. We offer a variety of programs including funding, shared resources, and opportunities for intellectual exchange.
