Learning about Sensing Technologies with Interactive Holographics

The Impact of Interactive Holographic Scenes in Developing Engineering Students' Competencies in Sensing Technologies (funded by the National Science Foundation Program on Improving Undergraduate STEM Education)

Center for Human-Computer Interaction


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.

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.

Research Thrusts


CHCI work addresses all aspects of the interplay between people and interactive technologies. We place special emphasis on two key research thrust areas: Immersive Experiences and Social Informatics.

Immersive Experiences

Designing novel and effective user experiences through immersive technologies such as virtual, augmented, and mixed reality.

Social Informatics

Understanding and defining interaction with information and communication tools in interpersonal, cultural, or institutional contexts.
