The Web and Internet Technologies focus introduces students to the systems and algorithms that power today's large-scale web and Internet applications such as search engines, social networking applications, web data mining applications, and content distribution networks. The focus covers the algorithm foundations of web and internet technologies, as well as implementation and system architecture.
Students who wish to pursue the Focus in Web and Internet Technologies should have a solid understanding of statistics, be good programmers, and have a good understanding of data structures and algorithm design.
To get practical experience, students pursuing the web and Internet technologies focus are encouraged to do either a term project or a summer USRA project in web and internet technologies.
