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.

Several companies, institutions and magazines recently published about the role of new frontiers of data analysis, especifically on how the huge amount of data nowadays available could be used to generate wealth, and graduate degrees in the field are urgently needed and crucial.
The MSc in Big Data and High Performance Computing is designed to address this anticipated skills gap and provide those completing the programme with the necessary abilities (abilities which will be highly desirable within the employment market) to address big data centric problems in the context of HPC.
The newly established Data Science Master’s offers a unique academic programme, whereby students can study data science, innovation, and entrepreneurship at leading European universities. In this programme, students will learn about scalable data collection techniques, data analysis methods, and a suite of tools and technologies that address data capture, processing, storage, transfer, analysis, and visualization, and related concepts (e.g., data access, pricing data, and data privacy).
Intelligence analysis is fundamental to understanding the issues, problems and threats faced by the intelligence community. The intelligence discipline of analysis requires critical thinking.
The overall aim of this course is to provide open distance learning for people working in commercial or public sector organisations who require core training and skills development in Geographical Information Systems (GIS), or for students who want to study in their own environment and in their own time.
Technological and societal changes led to an explosion of digitally available data. Exploiting the available data to its fullest extent, in order to improve decision making, increase productivity, and deepen our understanding of scientific questions, is one of today's major challenges. Data science is an emerging discipline that aims to address this challenge. It is a multi-disciplinary domain, where computer science and mathematics play crucial roles, complemented with human-technology interaction, business models and operations management expertise and skills.
