Master's in Informatics Career Opportunities

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.

  • Network architecture
  • Network administration
  • Database administration
  • Business intelligence and analytics
  • Web development
  • Computing technical support
  • Data and integration engineering

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.
