Information Sciences and Technology for EMS - Minor

This minor, open only to EMS students, allows you to better understand information systems—which are a core component of any research, educational, or industrial enterprise in the Earth and mineral sciences. Science and engineering disciplines related to EMS majors typically focus on numerical modeling and simulation systems, and on the analysis and management of very large data sets. The minor is designed to provide EMS students with a basic introduction to information sciences and information technology through courses in the core curriculum of the College of Information Sciences and Technology. Students then select from a group of interdisciplinary EMS courses that focus on the particular interests of the college.
