Informatics and computing are among the fastest growing professions in the country. In fact, the national job outlook for computing and information technology occupations is expected to grow faster than average (i.e., about 10%, depending upon the specific occupation) between now and the year 2029, 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.
