Computer Informatics

Computer Informatics – New Offering Beginning Fall 2018

Computer informatics focuses on the human-computer interaction to aid in critical decision making. It combines computing with several areas of study to help individuals and corporations navigate big data and make it more useful for leaders. The real value of a degree in computer informatics is to equip students to solve problems that often fall well outside of information technology.

The computer informatics program at the University of Montevallo teaches students how to transform the human-computer interaction with large sets of data into specific useful analytics for applied decisions. We equip students with a strong liberal arts background in addition to the knowledge and skills required for a successful career in a growing industry.

Graduates of our computer informatics program will gain the:

  • ability to design and implement systems necessary to store and access repositories of information
  • knowledge of design techniques to ensure cyber security and data integrity
  • foundation to program in any modern programming language
  • fundamental concepts of data mining
  • skills needed to lead organizations through decision making by utilizing large data sets
