UIST research and education is motivated by the fact that human enterprises are increasingly fueled
by and dependent upon vast flows of information. Information systems, are all around us. Cell phones, smart cards, embedded micro-chips, nano-scale sensing devices are ubiquitous and invisible computers have become embedded in everything from appliances to automobiles.
Advances in information technology have transformed life around the world. In UIST we believe that the impact of the Information Age has only just begun and that the greatest transformations lie ahead.

The Graduate programs at UIST are designed to provide students with the theoretical foundations and advanced knowledge in analysis, collection, classification, manipulation, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information, as well as the role of information systems and technologies in
both business and society.
