College Choice, an independent online publication, just released its list of the “35 Best Masters in Information Technology for 2017,” in which UCI’s M.S. in Informatics was ranked No. 22. The College Choice review team gave the informatics graduate degree program an almost perfect score of 97.03 out of 100.
According to College Choice, “Whether they come from the arts or the sciences, UCI’s M.S. in Informatics students share one a common desire to seek to build a deeper understanding of the relationship between people and technology.”
The rankings were compiled using polls conducted on college freshmen during a nationwide survey published by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA focused on academic reputation, financial aid offerings, school costs and graduate success rates on the post-college job market. In addition, HERI rankings were weighed against data from several publically available sources like U.S. News & World Report, the National Center for Education Statistics and PayScale.com.
