Overall, the national job outlook for computing and information technology occupations is expected to grow faster than average (i.e., about 12%, depending upon the specific occupation), between now and the year 2024, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Some informatics jobs are available for graduates with just a bachelor’s degree; however, earning your master’s in informatics will provide more career options, positions with greater responsibility, increased pay, and greater autonomy.
Employees with a master’s in informatics are equipped for careers in areas including:
- Application development
- Systems and business analysis
- Enterprise computing
- Network security
- Network architecture
- Network administration
- Database administration
- Business intelligence and analytics
- Web development
- Computing technical support
- Data and integration engineering
- Computer graphics design
We also partner with local, regional, and statewide business and organizations, including medical/health care, oil and gas, information technology, and transportation/distribution, and others, to provide internship opportunities for our students so they can get on-the-job training while earning course credit.
