​​​​Information about the bachelor’s programme ​Media Informatics

Support and advice:




In the first semesters of the bachelor’s programme Media Informatics, you acquire the fundamentals of informatics and natural sciences. Elements of aesthetic and technical media design complement these fundamentals. You learn essential theories and methods as well as how to handle specific tools in practice.

Based on this knowledge, you can broaden and deepen your expertise and skills in advanced modules in digital media topics – particularly digitalisation. You can choose compulsory elective modules according to your interests to create your individual areas of specialisation – e.g. in interactive systems, web applications, secure IT systems, multimedia communication, e-business, communication design, visualisation, media production, computer graphics, mixed and virtual reality.

Within projects each semester, you learn to work together in teams, organise your work and develop media informatics products and applications. Such projects include conception, requirement analysis, planning, design, implementation and testing as well as maintenance and further development. During an external semester, you can work in a company or study abroad. Thus, as a graduate, you have already acquired much of the often expected practical experience.

A dozen experienced professors and lecturers from professional practice teach the courses. They provide excellent supervision of autonomous work in our well-equipped laboratories.

Personal interests and required skills:
– You would like to be able to develop software yourself, systematically and in a team.
– You like to put together creative, technical solutions.
– You are not afraid of practical theories.
– You should master abstract thinking, be able to develop concepts and plan your work independently. – You should be very committed and goal-oriented.
