The Institute for Information Sciences (I2S) advances knowledge and creates innovative technologies in telecommunications, information systems, bioinformatics, and radar. We are one of the largest research centers at the University of Kansas, with our resources and state-of-the-art facilities supporting various multidisciplinary inquiries. I2S-affiliated faculty members have served as federal program directors at NSF, DARPA, and NASA.

The labs within I2S receive computing resources, RF engineering for layout and construction, and programming expertise which are supported by dedicated technical staff. 

I2S researchers are helping shape not only national policy but also the technology leaders of tomorrow. I2S is committed to the continued growth and diversity of the State's economy. Under faculty guidance, our students conduct fundamental research and develop strategic solutions for Kansas companies and national industries.
