The Informatics-programme has been set up for undergraduate informatics and business students. This international class consists of a compulsory part for the participating international students, to be completed with optional courses or modules from our degree study programmes.

Almost none of the courses in applied informatics are introductory courses. This means that the student should already master the basics of object oriented computer programming and in most cases of relational databases (database concepts, SQL). For some courses knowledge of web design (html, css) is also required.

Students can also do a project in software development of IT infrastructure (security, server management, computer networking) which can amount to up to 20 ECTS credits depending on the volume of the project. The topic of this product should be discussed upon arrival with the coordinator of applied informatics to check the foreknowledge and the preferences of the students in order to find a suitable project. If feasible a project can be organised in cooperation with a company or non-profit organisation.

Take note: student should bring their personal laptop computer for most of the courses.
