The Center for Information Systems & Technology’s design-centric research approach trains students to evaluate the effectiveness of designed solutions and measure their impact on improving human performance and addressing societal challenges.

At CISAT, we find solutions. Spanning applications in education, health, government, business, and more, our research is hands on, technically focused, and industry oriented. We believe creativity, combined with high-quality training in research methods and existing theory, can shape good, efficient design solutions that simultaneously broaden knowledge in the field, enhance human performance, and make the world a better place.
