Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering

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, 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.
