Informatics is the art, science, business, and technology of information. It is about making information useful and meaningful. Here at NKU’s College of Informatics we offer a 21st century perspective on the disciplines that have information at their core.
The Center for Applied Informatics (CAI) offers students the opportunity to work with business and non-profit clients on cutting-edge informatics projects, while the Center for Information Security (CIS) is NKU’s hub for information security research and education.
The Center for Applied Informatics is the outreach arm of Northern Kentucky University’s College of Informatics. It draws upon student, staff and faculty expertise from business informatics, computer science, communication and beyond to directly enhance student success and drive the mission of informatics.
The NKU Center for Information Security (CIS) is a multidisciplinary center for information security research and education. NKU has been designated as a National Center for Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense by the National Security Agency and U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Our students tackle the opportunities and challenges of the digital age: dealing with cyber threats, making the most of digital media, extracting insights from massive amounts of data, and using IT in healthcare. A gift to the College of Informatics provides the next generation of thinkers and innovators. Our students can lead a regional technological renaissance with your help.
