Based on theoretical principles such as logic and mathematics, structure formation and modeling, today's informatics covers a variety of disciplines and applications, such as: cryptography, computer networks and network security, Java programming and e-commerce, digital systems, image and signal processing, multimedia and Internet technologies in interactive or linear media, computer animation and visualization, distributed databases and artificial intelligence, internet agents, intelligent robots, embedded systems and network computing. Informatics is so much more than just programming.
Career prospects for graduates with a degree in informatics are excellent.
The following Informatics degree programmes can be studied at the University of Applied Sciences Brandenburg:
All study courses are accredited by the Accreditation Agency ASIIN. With the completion of a Master's programme, graduates have the possibility of earning a doctorate.
Basic information on the occupational field of a computer scientist
As a key science informatics finds application in all areas of business and management. The tasks and responsibilities of computer scientists include:
Computer scientists may therefore find their jobs in different fields of work, such as the media industry or business corporations that manufacture computers (hardware, if neccessary with appropriate software) or develop and distribute software. Graduates of the Informatics Department are also active in companies that provide data processing applications as services in consulting and administration, computer users in the industry and the industrial sector or public services. Some of the graduates of Informatics and Media are today successful, independent entrepreneurs in one of the above areas.
