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 has had a bigger impact on how we live and work than any other field over the past few decades, and will grow in significance over the years to come. If you want to help shape the future creatively, our English-language Informatics bachelor programme is the perfect choice for you.
