Information for Employers
It is with immense pleasure that we welcome you to the Informatics website.
In the early 2000, the department of Computer and Information Sciences began offing a new degree in Informatics. The first Informatics undergraduate degree was awarded in 2004, nearly 20 years after our first BS in computer science. Currently the department offers, individually and with other programs, MS in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science (focus areas: Computer Science, Data Science, Applied Mathematics, and Integrated), BS in Computer Science, BS in Informatics, and BS in Informatics Online (joint with several other IU campuses). We also offer graduate certificate, postbaccalaureate certificate, undergraduate certificates, and various minors.
Our INFO curriculum is based on the original curriculum developed by the school of Informatics at IU Bloomington. Given our foundations (CS faculty core), our curriculum is also based on the recommendations of the ACM/ABET organizations which are the premier organizations in the CS profession. Our Informatics program allows students to develop or find technological solutions to solve problems in the area of their passion (e.g., Bioinformatics, Business, Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Criminal Justice, English, Health Informatics, Life Sciences, Mathematics, New Media / Arts, Physics, Psychology, Social Informatics, Web Development)
Currently, there are twelve tenured full-time faculty members with terminal degrees, a lecturer, and a number of associate faculty. Additional information about the faculty and their research interests and teaching is available on the research areas page.
