Information Science offers a Bachelor of Science through the College of Engineering in Information Science, Systems, and Technology (ISST). The ISST major studies the design and management of complex information systems, with an emphasis on information systems engineering in broad application contexts, where issues at the confluence of information science, technology, and management are the primary concerns. Students take classes in operations research modeling techniques, statistics, computer science, economics, and the social and organizational contexts in which transformative information systems exist.
