As of autumn 2019 the IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems will offer the english taught Bachelor degree programme Informatics.
Informatics is a key driver of innovation that is fuelling advances in many aspects of working and everyday life. Computers make it possible to model and predict economic, ecological and social developments; bioinformatics supports the development of new drugs; and thanks to machine learning, large volumes of data become clear and readable, while pattern recognition turns it into a valuable resource with a variety of potential applications. Informatics opens up new options for creating economic added value, protecting the environment and saving lives.
IMC Krems’ English-language Informatics bachelor degree programme is aimed at people who are interested in technology-related subjects and want to play a creative part in shaping aspects of the way we will live and work in the future. The programme includes a specialisation in data science, as well as electives with a strong practical focus: Business Process and Enterprise Technologies and Bioinformatics.
Graduates can look forward to a wide range of career options, including in software development, information-based decision making and IT consulting. They will be in strong demand both in Austria and abroad, with a skills set aligned with future requirements.
This programme provides you with a broad, non-industry-specific education in informatics and will qualify you for entry level roles in a wide range of organisations and industries, as well as advanced master-level study.
