The College of Computing and Information Sciences was established in the year 2018 with three undergraduate four-year programs. Considering its humble beginnings, CCIS was designated as the Regional Nodal Center for Information Technology by the Commission on Higher Education in the same year; also recognized as the region’s leading Information Technology Institution by the National Computer Center. With the college’s outstanding success, several research centers have been established to support the university’s research, innovation, and extension programs – one of which is the Center for Human-Computer Interaction (CHCI). The Center for Human Computer Interaction (CHCI) at Caraga State University is a university-wide research center that addresses the foundation of human-computer interaction technology applied to learning environments, social and rural contexts. It is a multidisciplinary endeavor from human sciences, computational, engineering and information technologies. It fosters research and development in the area of artificial intelligence, augmented reality and other HCIs-related fields of specialization.
A leading research institute in Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Data and Information Systems.
