Informatics

School of Informatics and Computing

Informatics is smart computing going beyond hardware and software. Informatics thinks big picture, building strong technical skills as well as understanding how we use technology to communicate, work, heal and play, and solve problems that are facing society and industry. It is a way to make a difference in the lives of others, so the focus of the program is on the social impact of computing—how people and technology connect.

Degree Maps

One of the most difficult tasks of being a college student is figuring out what classes to take and when to take them. In order to make the process a little easier, each major at IUPUI has its own degree map outlining the path you should take to graduate as quickly as possible.
