Technology in

Welcome to HCTC

Welcome to the website of Prof. Masoud Gheisari’s research group in the M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Construction Management at the University of Florida.

Human-Centered Technology in Construction (HCTC) research focuses on the theoretical and experimental investigation of human-computer/robot systems in construction. This includes the design, implementation, and evaluation of technological artifacts to satisfy human needs in the construction environment.

Our team was excellently represented at the ASCE Computing in Civil Engineering Conference.
Our team received the best paper award at the 59th Annual ASC International conference!
Let’s learn about the safety challenges of UAV integration in construction in just 90 seconds!
Ricardo just started as an Assistant Professor at Arizona State, & Gilles also started the same position at Texas A&M
