  1. Hi everyone! I decided to create a topic for human factors applicants since there doesn't seem to be one for our niche. Here are some potential discussions: What schools are you applying to? What are your research interests? Do you plan on going into government, industry, or academia? Do you have any updates from your program or POI? How are you feeling with your application? What are you worried about? What do you have to brag about? How did you pick the programs you're applying to? Are you going to the annual HFES meeting in Seattle? We're outnumbered compared to almost (probably) all psychological fields so lets create a place to exchange helpful information. Personally, I am applying to only the human factors program at Wichita State this cycle. I currently work in one of the research labs at Wichita State so if I do not get accepted I will just continue to gain research experience the next year and publish my manuscript.
  2. Hi! Just want to start a thread for HCI PhD applications this year! Maybe we can discuss about programs/interviews/results and anxieties here? Who also applied for PhD in HCI this year? What is your area of interest? I noticed some people already got interviews for CS PhDs... Maybe the only thing we can do for now is to stop checking mailbox and relax and focus more on our work at hand??
  3. I am a MPhil in Advanced Computer Science student from Cambridge. I got rejected by most US HCI master programs last year, so I went to Cambridge in the end. Since my MPhil course is an one-year program, I am thinking about my next plan, which is to apply for a Ph.D. degree in US. My research interest is in HCI, especially social computing and affective computing. Because currently I am pursuing a MPhil degree in Cambridge, and it is a research-oriented degree, the most natural choice is to see if the MPhil project suits my interest, and then continue Ph.D. study directly in Cambridge after finishing MPhil. But I am a person who enjoys seeking changes, and I want to experience US research and education. I know applying for a Ph.D. degree in top US CS (HCI concentration) programs can be extremely difficult, so I want to be better prepared. My undergraduate major is Industrial Engineering, and I am a little worried about people will have no idea about this major and its connection with HCI. Therefore, I want to make most of my MPhil study to add something to my academic background. However, since most Ph.D. applications' deadlines are in December, by that time I may not have enough research and course outcomes to present in my CV. Besides, I do not know anybody who switched to pursue Ph.D. degree in US after finishing MPhil course in UK. Whether this is a disadvantage if I study in UK, and do not have enough connections with professors and labs in US? Do you have any advice for me regarding my situation? Currently I am trying to strengthen my application regarding SOP, CV, research experience (but probably no paper for this summer) and also refine my portfolio (is portfolio an advantage in HCI PhD application?) University of Washington is my dream school.
  4. Here are my top choices so far: Harvard: -MDes (Technology) Carnegie Mellon University: -MDes -MS in Computational Design (partial scholarship) -MHCI Going to Harvard and taking classes at MIT (especially the Media Lab) would be a dream. I just cannot figure out where Harvard MDes will take me professionally. CMU is very transparent about the graduates' career statistics. CMU students seem to be doing well professionally and financially. Does anyone know how well Harvard MDes grads transition to industry? Also, one of my goals is to learn as much CS as possible during grad school. Also admitted to: Columbia University: MArch Rice University: MArch (full ride) TU Delft: Design for Interaction Georgia Tech: Master of Science in Architecture (Digital Design and Fabrication)
  5. Hey all, I have applied to 3 programs related to human factors and ergonomics/hci. I was wondering if there are others out there waiting it out. Post your results/status and where you applied!!
  6. Hello, Could someone please evaluate my profile and suggest a couple of things? GRE - 336 [Q: 170, V: 166] TOEFL - 117 [R:29, L:30, S:28, W:30] CGPA - 8.78 [Department topper's CGPA - 9.4] Undergrad Institute - IIIT-Delhi (Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, Delhi) Recommendations - Moderate to good, all 3 from professors at my institute. I am actually confused between the fields of specialization, most of my work can be aligned with AI/ML, though i am also considering HCI. I have done 3 research (independent) projects - one on modelling algorithms for distributed systems, one on face recognition with deep learning, another on text analysis (NLP). Research papers - none yet. I might be able to submit one by the coming week, not sure though. Question - Is getting into a plain CS program more difficult than getting into a CS program in a specific track? Chances of getting in the following universities? (Please rank as mod/ambi/drop if possible.) 1. Stanford (I am assuming this would be a dream university for me, should I even consider applying?) 2. CMU 3. GeorgiaTech 4. University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign 5. Columbia 6. UC Berkeley? 7. USC Viterbi 8. Caltech 9. Cornell 10. UPenn
