The College of Computing formed the School of Interactive Computing in 2007. SIC has taken the initiative in creating new, more effective techniques and practices for computing education. At the doctoral level, we led in the development of a Ph.D. in robotics; we’ve led a national trend in offering a Ph.D. in human-centered computing; and we participate fully in the College’s Ph.D. in computer science.
