The Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing is the first completely new school in the United States devoted exclusively to Informatics and a range of its subdisciplines. With its formative national role in creating the nation’s largest Informatics Program on the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses, the School is the broadest and one of the largest information/computing schools in the U.S.
At IUPUI, the School offers a Ph.D. program with three specializations (Human–Computer Interaction, Bioinformatics, and Health and Biomedical Informatics), five Master’s programs (Bioinformatics, Health Informatics, Human–Computer Interaction, Media Arts & Science and Library and Information Science), three Baccalaureate programs (Media Arts & Science, Informatics, and Health Information Management), and several undergraduate and graduate certificate programs.
The School also has strong ties with the health and life sciences in the areas of health data exchange, clinical decision support, consumer health informatics, integrated health information systems, and interactive health information technologies. The School provides state-of-the-art facilities including fully equipped classrooms, media and gaming labs, human–computer interaction research labs, usability and mobile development labs, ample research facilities, and studios for sound design and interactive media production. Access to advanced, high-resolution wall-sized displays and virtual environments are also available within the Informatics and Communications Technology Complex.
About IUPUI and Indianapolis
The Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus, with over 30,000 students, is located on a large tract of land adjacent to downtown Indianapolis. IUPUI is the health and life science campus of Indiana University, the focal point of health profession education in the State of Indiana. IUPUI offers a full range of academic programs, with degrees from both Purdue University and Indiana University.
Indiana University is an academic leader in the development and use of information technology. The School of Informatics and Computing is situated on the academic Medical Center Campus, home to the Indiana University School of Medicine, the second largest medical school in the US. During FY 2011, Indiana University spent over $427M on research, much of it in the health and life sciences. The School has formed several key research partnerships with the IU School of Medicine and the Regenstrief Institute, an internationally recognized medical informatics research center. The School also enjoys collaboration with the Roudebush VA Medical Center, Clarian Health (one of the largest health care organizations in the Midwest), the Schools of Nursing, and the Purdue Schools of Engineering and Technology and Science. In June 2009, The Economist stated, “Although every state wants to be a hub for life science, Indiana really is one.” Indiana’s comprehensive strengths and leadership in health and health information technology are coordinated by BioCrossroads, a statewide initiative, which partners with research institutions, global companies, philanthropic organizations and government to advance growth and innovation.
The School of Informatics and Computing faculty enjoy state-of-the art computing resources. When commissioned in 2006, Big Red was one of the most powerful university-owned computers in the US, and one of the 50 fastest supercomputers in the world. Indiana University is currently replacing Big Red with Big Red II, the next-generation Cray XK, the fastest university-owned supercomputer in the US, capable of one thousand trillion floating-point operations per second. Also available to all faculty are the IU Scholarly Data Archive which provides extensive capacity (15 PB) for storing and accessing research data and Quarry which serves as a Virtual Machine hosting environment for the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), the National Science Foundation’s largest advanced cyberinfrastructure facility.
Indianapolis is the nation’s 14th largest city, the capital of Indiana, home to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a Sport’s Capital, Indiana Repertory Theatre, Indianapolis Symphony, Indianapolis Ballet, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis Zoo and one of the country’s most livable big cities.
