Design, Technology, and Research (DTR)
The Design, Technology, and Research program is a supportive, collaborative community of designers, builders, and researchers focused on solving critical problems in the world. We develop systems that shape new experiences with people and technology. We work at the intersection of human-computer interaction, social and crowd computing, learning science, artificial intelligence, and design. Our supportive community enables students to gain experience leading cutting-edge research and develop into self-directed designers, engineers, and researchers who are well-positioned to design solutions to address people’s needs, explore new technologies that capture our imagination, and challenge ourselves to advance the state of the art through research.
