Business Informatics & Computer Science

Applied Informatics Team

The Informatics and Computer Science department regularly receives requests for assistance with informatics projects. The Applied Informatics team was formed in 2015 to address this need, and is mentored by Professor Jon Holmes. The program aspires to develop solutions that help to stimulate economic growth and development opportunities.

The program connects experienced faculty, talented students, and university resources with our business and university partners to solve real world problems and provide students with opportunities to learn and grow through applied informatics projects. Examples of such projects include providing web development services for departments and centers within ISU and the College of Business, as well as for community partners in need of web development assistance.

The program is designed to provide additional applied informatics opportunities for our students. Many of our students are funded through the Career Path Internship (CPI) program, which helps provide meaningful job experience to ISU students through internship opportunities. Studies have shown that students who participate in internships become more effective employees, have higher job placement rates, and earn higher wages than their peers. The CPI Program and the Applied Informatics team provide opportunities for our students to engage in a practical internship that will enhance their academic and professional careers.
