The Office of Graduate Studies would like to highlight the new ACM SIGCHI student chapter at RIT. If you have a club you would like to see highlighted on our website please contact Rauncie Ryan.
Brian Coleman shared the following about this great new club opportunity:
In undergrad, I was involved in a host of committees and organizations at University of Pittsburgh. I found those experiences to be highly rewarding personally, and beneficial for leadership experience. I made lifelong friends along the way too. Since, I'm new to Rochester Institute of Technology, I wanted to find people who shared my passion and interests in Human-Computer Interaction. It is a growing field. Providing a club that meets the social needs of students, but also informs the campus about opportunities within the field is very appealing to me. Human-Computer Interaction is a program that integrates elements of psychological sciences, art/design, and computer science into one area. Anyone can participate and be a practitioner of this field. As a practitioner, you attempt to create satisfying aesthetic and technological experiences for users. Apple is a corporate leader in this area, and competitors of Apple are looking to mimic their products success.
ACM SIGCHI Student Chapter at RIT has the following benefits:
I hope to see continued interest and growth in this area, and invite all students on campus to participate!
