Master the great challenges of the future
Systems and products from the field of informatics can be found in nearly all technical products from smartphones to mobile robots and we can no longer do without them in either public infrastructure or private life. Computer scientists influence methods and structures that enable global networking and digital communication. They create IT solutions and develop new applications. The degree programme addresses the most important current tasks – the grand challenges of informatics – in many areas:
Emphasis on practice
The bachelor's degree programme Informatics at the Harz University of Applied Sciences offers students a course of studies based on fundamental knowledge and methods that stands out because of its strong practice-relevance as well as the intensive and individual support from our teaching staff. You will obtain not only well-founded knowledge in the area of internet technologies but also train your analytical abilities in order to solve complex problems with IT systems on your own.
Set the trends of tomorrow with technical know-how
Alongside the mandatory programme, specialisations in the Informatics degree course open up wide-ranging possibilities for our students to set their own special focus according to their interests. In our well-equipped, modern laboratories you can broaden your technical know-how and, building on the basic principles of informatics, develop the systems and trends of tomorrow. The bachelor's work placement helps you to obtain insights into the world of work in the IT industry and to make your first contacts.
