At the Fulton Schools of Engineering, our students have opportunities that allow them to be engineers from day one. We have 14 degree programs and endless ways for students to customize their college experience both in and outside of the classroom. Over the next several weeks, we will highlight our degree programs, student organizations, leadership and mentoring opportunities and undergraduate research opportunities.
Two relatively new programs in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering are informatics and engineering management.
From the Internet to multimedia displays to social media, informatics engineers design innovative ways to help people interact with technology and new ways for users to create and share information.
Our program provides students with the technological tools needed to store, translate and present data. It gives graduates marketable expertise that combines an understanding of information technology, software development and human-computer interaction.
Informatics can be applied to nearly any field, from smartphones to medical research.
Hear Davenn’s story: Coming out of high school Davenn had no idea what he wanted to do. He knew he loved math and problem-solving of engineering and ended up trying a couple of different engineering programs before finding the perfect match: informatics.
Engineering managers combine technical expertise with business knowledge to help lead organizations. Increasingly, technology-based enterprises are looking for engineers who understand successful business strategies. Our Engineering Management degree program is designed to produce graduates who are ready to lead a technology or engineering-driven organization.
Engineering managers plan and coordinate large projects, leading a technical team from design through implementation. Projects may include advances in research, developing new products or designing manufacturing process improvements.
With experience applicable to a diverse range of fields, engineering managers not only contribute to technical projects, they lead the way in innovation and implementation.
