Affiliated Research Centers

  • The GVU Center involves 70 faculty and more than 160 graduate students from 11 affiliated departments including psychology, collaborating on research projects in animation, virtual reality, design, usability, multimedia, digital culture, internet tools, education, and future computing environments.
  • The Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Program is a multidisciplinary program involving the College of Computing, the School of Psychology, the School of Literature, Communication, and Culture, and other departments. Students doing research in the HCI area receive their degrees in their "home" departments (e.g., computer science, psychology) while actively working with various faculty and labs involved in the program.
  • The Emory Medical School-Georgia Tech Biomedical Engineering Program was established for joint training and research and is particularly relevant to the emerging focus in cognitive neuroscience.
  • The Center for Research and Education on Aging and Technology Enhancement (CREATE) is conducting projects that focus on human interactions with technology. CREATE represents a consortium of three universities, each with its own research team: The University of Miami, Florida State University, and Georgia Institute of Technology. It is funded by the National Institutes of Health (National Institute on Aging).
  • The Georgia State / Georgia Tech Center for Advanced Brain Imaging is a 6000 square foot facility dedicated to understanding brain function. The center is located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta. The center has a research dedicated 3-Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanner capable of high-resolution images that are sensitive to brain structure and function.
  • The Work Science Center promotes improved worker well-being, increases organizational value, and informs public policy makers.
