Degree(s): Master of Science
Overview: Research and theory in informatics move rapidly to application and development. The faculty teaching in the School of Informatics participates in research activities and new applications of technology. As a result, faculty can transmit state-of-the-art knowledge to students. Indiana University is capitalizing on this great research strength in informatics with the formation of an Informatics Research Institute (IRI). IRI will conduct research in areas of emphasis shared with the School of Informatics, including: fundamental research in human computer interaction; fundamental research in capturing, managing, analyzing, and explaining information and making it available for its myriad uses; and expanding research into policy and socioeconomic issues arising from information technology.
