The field of informatics dynamically infuses information science and technology into the lives of people at work and play. It involves studying how people interact with computers to increase productivity and enhance communication. Students will learn to critically analyze approaches to processing information and develop skills to design, implement, and evaluate the next generation of information technology tools. 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. Students will study topics in information technology and information systems, completing their degree with a focus in areas such as health sciences, criminal justice, accounting, social sciences and others.
Graduates of the Informatics program can transfer to a four-year university or enter the workforce. Example of entry level positions for our graduates include Systems Analyst, Usability Analyst, Interaction Designer, and Information Systems Manager.
The Associate of Science in Informatics at Ivy Tech is a transfer single articulation pathways (TSAP) program that provides a clear pathway for graduates to transfer to a four-year institution to obtain a bachelor’s degree in Informatics.
