The School of Science at IUPUI invites prospective students to visit campus this fall for several events designed to highlight some of its most exciting programs and the diverse career opportunities available in Indiana’s booming life and health sciences and technology industries.

“The School of Science is a very active and engaging place,” said Simon Rhodes, dean of the school. “We’ve found that rather than tout the caliber of science research and academics taking place on campus, it’s best to bring future students to us so they can experience it for themselves.”

Oct. 12: Computer and Information Science Open House

The events kickoff at 9 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 12 by highlighting the school’s Computer and Information Science program. Researchers and instructors in computer science, the fastest growing industry in the sciences, will be on hand to discuss the role computer science graduates will play in keeping businesses growing through technology.

Whether your interests lie in video game design, database management, multimedia development or systems analysis, the Department of Computer and Information Science at IUPUI has a program that will put you on the right path toward a successful career in this high-growth and challenging field.
