Information systems and technologies facilitate the functions of organizations and interpersonal interactions in modern societies. The goal of the Informatics program is to educate students to apply
information technologies and to design, maintain, and adapt information systems that solve problems with an understanding of human needs and context.
The basic curriculum for the program is as follows:
Practical information technology (IT) training can be delivered by a variety of programs, from for-profit training institutes to community colleges. A university graduate in an IT field can distinguish
himself or herself by the ability to analyze a problem with a broader perspective, covering the professional, ethical, legal, security, and social responsibilities. More importantly, he or she has the
knowledge and ability to adapt to emerging technologies and stay current with newer tools as they are developed in his or her career.
The Informatics core and capstone courses are designed and chosen to prepare our students to develop the aforementioned abilities by educating them in these bodies of knowledge:
|Body of Knowledge
