Informatics is the science of information, engineering of information systems and information processing. It is the multidisciplinary field which deals with the information analysis, its collection, transmission, storage, utilization and dissemination. The field is closely related to computer sciences as well as communications, mathematics, electronics, philosophy, management and library science. Informatics and information sciences became popular since the first digital information devices were introduced. Modern organizations exchange the information using information transmission devices and their programming systems. This results the high demand of IT specialists, who understand the latest information and communication technology issues, develop the software and solve practical engineering problems. The study field also deals with the ways how the information is used and affects human welfare. There are many contributing disciplines, such as computer science, communication studies, complex systems, information theory, information technology, didactics of informatics and etc.
This uniquely international and interdisciplinary programme introduces eHealth in the context of international health systems and global health challenges, supported by specialist courses covering areas such as public health informatics, tele-healthcare and mHealth. It offers you the opportunity to develop a comprehensive critical understanding of the many technical and sociotechnical factors underpinning eHealth and the research skills needed to study and evaluate these.
This discipline is intended for students that want to extend the specific informatics knowledge from the bachelor level into both, the basic multidiscipline overview in managerial skills and service economy understanding, and the deep insight into informatics fundamentals of service system construction and service systems operation in a business practice.
This two-year study programme. This study field is taught only in English language. It is a comprehensive study programme of programmable structures which overlaps with parallel and distributed systems, computer networks, and cryptography.
Our course is focuses on putting theory into practice. We have close relationships with many IT and consulting organisations including Ernst & Young, Barclays Capital, SAP, Google, and Deloitte. All value the WBS approach to developing managers with a creative approach to integrated technology. Deloitte, for example, provide insights on the challenges and approaches to client work by running a whole module for us.
Informatics has in recent decades become an increasingly important part of the infrastructure of society and permeates daily life in many different ways. In order to address future societal challenges, there is a long-term need of relevant and leading-edge research and development in informatics.Research in informatics addresses how information is represented, processed and communicated in artificial and natural systems, and how such systems are developed in order to achieve usable and effective applications and solutions.
Data science is the collective name for various kinds of methods that can be used to analyze large and complex amounts of data, in order to support different types of decision makers in their decision making. Data science is based primarily on the areas of Informatics such as programming, data mining, artificial intelligence and visualization. Data science is a relatively new concept that takes over after the term "Big Data". Application fields are numerous, eg Business intelligence, bioinformatics, analysis of cloud services, anomaly detection, maintenance planning, marketing, to name a few.
This program provides opportunities for motivated and highly qualified students to undertake advanced study and to produce a research-based dissertation. Students will develop appropriate research skills and specialist area knowledge that will enhance their career prospects or allow them to proceed to further appropriate higher degree studies.
The Graduate Certificate in Science provides students with the opportunity to further their knowledge in discipline areas critical to their professional responsibilities and interests.
