Information Systems are a core component of any research, educational or industrial enterprise in the Earth and Materials Sciences. In addition, the science and engineering disciplines represented in the College have a particular focus on numerical modeling and simulation systems, and on the analysis and management of very large data sets. The EMS - IST minor provides students a basic introduction to information sciences and information technology through courses in the core curriculum of the School of Information Sciences and Technology. Students then select from a group of interdisciplinary EMS courses that focus on the particular interests of the College.
A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
