Informatics

Where Information and Technology Meet

Informatics is the art, science and human dimensions of information technology.  It is information technology applied to human problems.  Informatics as a discipline is closely related to, but distinct from, such fields as computer science, information science and other traditional disciplines related to information technology.

Informatics is more general, basic and applied than any of these related disciplines: more general, in that it emphasizes breadth across issues in all of the related disciplines, and includes social and ethical issues regarding the information revolution — more basic, in that it examines foundational questions about the very nature of information and computation — more applied, since the aim is to produce qualified information technology professionals to meet the rapidly rising need.
