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.
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.
This course combines the study of Information Systems with Operations Management, emphasising the creative potential of information technology for innovation and change. It provides a thorough grounding in the principles and practice of information systems. Students will also be educated in the key operations management challenges in contemporary organisations, including the challenges in supply chain management.
Computational chemistry is the development and practical application – through high-performance computing – of quantum and classical mechanics (and informatics) to the study of chemical processes ranging from fundamental spectroscopic events in the gas phase to the nature of protein-drug interactions.
Information Technology (IT) influences the foundation of business processes as it impacts on all organizations and industries. Organizations must know how to make the right choices with respect to new Information Systems (IS). Also, organizations need to ensure that existing business processes continue to receive a high quality service from IT. This tight link between IS and business processes involve shared responsibilities in the organization for the effective use of IT.
Masters in Computer Engineering from ULg take advantage of their abstraction capabilities, rigorous reasoning and skills in computer science, but also in electronics and in various other fields of engineering, to design, develop and evaluate complex information processing systems.
Masters in Computer Science take advantage of their knowledge, know-how and skills in computer science to analyse, design, develop, integrate, benchmark and test complex information systems. Their achievements often consist in implementing complex products or services combining hardware and software. The designed system provides its users the means to best accomplish their professional activities in various sectors such as finance, electronic commerce, medicine, transport, telecommunications, bioinformatics, etc.
