You are interested in future technology and want to actively and creatively shape it yourself? What technology is behind apps, games or websites? How do augmented and virtual reality (VR) or artificial intelligence actually work? How do I design interactive media? How do I design, program and evaluate digital applications so that users can make the best possible use of these systems?
That's what the Media Informatics degree program is all about! Here you will learn to confidently master the fundamentals, techniques, skills and solutions. So, step by step, media informatics students become sought-after specialists in app design, game development, front-end and back-end, artificial intelligence, software development, user experience and web design. All of this makes media informatics a future-oriented and varied study program that allows you to creatively realize yourself and opens up a variety of exciting career prospects.

The interdisciplinary bachelor's degree program in media informatics combines the content of a classic computer science degree (practical, technical and theoretical computer science as well as mathematics) with design and multimedia content. You will learn the important basics in lectures in particular and then discuss, use and deepen these in supervised exercises, practice-oriented laboratories, interactive seminars, research-oriented group projects and the scientific bachelor thesis. Here you give free rein to your ideas and work, for example, with 3D printers, drones, frameworks, games, artificial intelligence, robots, social media, user experience tools, VR glasses and websites.
Career opportunities in industry and economy:
Graduates have access to a broad spectrum of professions in the areas of informatics, communications, telematics and new media, for example in business consultancy, design and development of software systems, usability engineering of interactive systems, development of human—machine interfaces, technical maintenance and support of complex informatics projects.
E.g. at higher education institutions, research institutions and research centres in industry and economy.
