Technology education for people whose primary interest isn’t necessarily technology.
If you’re interested in a career in scientific research, medicine, education, business, design, or the fine arts, it’s practically certain that technology will be an important part of your work.
Today, scientific researchers are using supercomputers to map the shrinking polar ice sheets and data visualization tools that track the spread of infectious disease. Healthcare specialists are creating intuitive new applications that help people manage their health. And social activists are using common technologies in new ways to harness the collective power of individuals (it’s as easy as texting HAITI to 90999).
That’s all informatics—putting technology to work to solve complex problems. As an informatics student, you won’t just study information technology; you’ll also study its impact on the academic disciplines that interest you most.
- Undergraduates choose a cognate field of study and complete a capstone project of their own design. Still not convinced? Read: Why an Informatics Degree?
- Graduate students conduct intensive real-world research in their discipline.
Study what you love, gain valuable real-world experience, and work side by side with some of the most innovative thinkers in the field. You’ll graduate prepared for a career in one of the fastest-growing segments of the job market.
