By studying the Bachelor's degree programme in Informatics you will gain a fundamental education in this field of science. You will study basic mathematical disciplines, algorithms, programming theory and other methods related to the design and analysis of complex computer and other systems.
The main advantage you will gain from studying this program will be the lasting value of a computer science education, not training. You will not be an instructed user of information technology, but an expert/professional with appropriate analytical thinking and a comprehensive view of solving a wide range of computer science aspects, as well as problems that transcend into everyday civilian life.
Therefore, you will also easily find a place in the job market and your work will be valued accordingly. Moreover, as a student of this programme, you can individually profile a significant part of your studies by choosing optional subjects from a range that fully covers contemporary knowledge in the field of computer science. This programme is an ideal starting point for subsequent study of key areas of computer science, such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, computer graphics, data processing, bioinformatics, and the theory of computer science as a discipline.
You can also complement your studies by getting involved in the research activities of your teachers or by collaborating with a commercial company that is an industrial partner of the faculty.

Is studying the programme for you?
The study will be demanding especially on the ability of abstract and systematic thinking, on the contrary, it does not build on the ability to memorize facts. Do you have any doubts whether you can handle the study? A reliable indicator for you is the ease with which you can handle high school mathematics, or your interest in logic puzzles or success in various cryptographic games.
During your first year of study, you can seamlessly transfer to our sister programme, Programming and Application Development.
Graduates of this degree program typically continue their studies in an advanced master's degree program. However, the immediate employment of graduates in the job market is also seamless; you can work in a variety of positions with a focus on programming or information technology. As quality professionals in the field, you will be highly valued in the job market.
