<strong>Bloomington, Ind. &mdash; Aug. 22 </strong><br /><em>Computerworld </em>magazine announced in its August 2008 issue its “Top IT Schools to Watch 2008,” and the Indiana University School of Informatics was among the 10 schools recognized in a feature article on graduate programs. <br /><br />The schools, including institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University, Stanford University, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Virginia, were selected based on how well they were keeping pace with today&#39;s IT workplace and the relevance of their curricula to the ever-changing technology industry. <br /><br />IU&#39;s School of Informatics was touted for not only providing students with real-world experience, but for its interdisciplinary approach to the field and for the responsiveness of its faculty and the students. <br /><br />The list was compiled by a panel of more than two dozen IT executives, hiring managers, recruiters and academics who were asked to help identify the country&#39;s leading-edge schools for IT workers seeking to advance their careers. <br /><br />They considered graduate-level IT programs and schools that give graduates the best value in terms of salary increases or promotions vs. cost of tuition and that best gear their curricula to the everyday demands of today&#39;s IT workplace. <br /><br />From the IT schools selected by the panel, <em>Computerworld</em> editors chose the innovative IT schools to profile. Finally, Computerworld partnered with Dice.com to survey alumni at the schools, asking for feedback on their satisfaction with their schools&#39; program. <br /><br />”We are honored to be part of <em>Computerworld&#39;s</em> list for 2008,” said Bobby Schnabel, dean of the School. “It is gratifying to be in the company of schools that have long been considered at the top of the computing field and to gain recognition for our still young set of graduate programs in informatics.” <br />
