  4. Information quality
  5. Intelligent integration of information

This course will discuss research opportunities in these areas. Students may become involved in on-going research projects (for example, Multiplex).

A basic course in database management (for example, INFS-614: Database Management), good knowledge of discrete mathematics (for example, INFS-501: Discrete and Logical Structures for Information Systems).
