Research and education in informatics has a strong interdisciplinary flavor as it involves experts in the information and computation foundations together with experts in the application areas. The Informatics PhD program at the University of Illinois will support such interdisciplinary research and promote the creation of new fields of research enabled by the development and application of new technologies. The Informatics PhD program at Illinois brings together faculty working in various application areas, faculty working in information and computation foundations, and interdisciplinary faculty conjoining the two. With the help of an advisory committee, each student will craft his or her own program of study.
*Faculty who are interested in affiliating with the Illinois Informatics Institute should contact the Education Coordinator, Karin Readel.
