Information Science and Technology at Missouri University of Science and Technology offers an M.S. degree program. Information technology has transformed every aspect of our economy and society. 


Also offered are a number of graduate certificates: business analytics and data science, business intelligence, digital media, digital supply chain management, electronic and social commerce, enterprise resource planning, human-computer interaction, mobile business and technology, project management (jointly offered with the engineering management and systems engineering department). 

These graduate certificates are intended for students who wish to specialize and for working professionals who want to stay ahead of rapidly changing technology. Each graduate certificate program consists of a four-course sequence from existing graduate-level courses. Certificate credits earned by students admitted to the M.S. program will count toward their master’s degree.

Students admitted just to the certificate program will have non-matriculated status. However, if they complete the four-course sequence with a grade of “B” or better in each of the courses taken, they will be admitted to the M.S. program if they so choose. In addition, successful completion of the graduate certificate offered in the business program, with grades of "B" or better in each of the courses will also enable admission to the IS&T M.S. program. Admitted students must still meet the admissions requirements relative to undergraduate coursework.

The faculty is active in studying the design and application of the web and has external support for research. Research experiences are integrated into the classroom experience. Specially equipped research laboratories are available to support studies in human-computer interaction and experiments with computer networks, as are general purpose computing laboratories that are available to all Information Science and Technology students. A large number of computing languages and special-purpose software tools are available on various platforms. While instruction and research are on the leading edge of information systems, the department endeavors to keep class sizes small to facilitate student and faculty interactions.
