With Business Informatics, you have knowledge about the complete software development process, in particular the advisory part. You know exactly how computer applications can be used to support business processes and how you can provide the management of organisations with information for the purpose of strategic decision making.
The first three semesters are the same for both Software Engineering and Business Informatics. Afterwards, you choose your specialisation. During the final part of your studies, the internship, the Software Factory (project in cooperation with companies) and the graduation project are main components.
Programme in brief
We’re living in a ‘connected world’. People are connected by social media and devices are connected to each other (The Internet of Things). Our lives become more dependent on computers. We’re not aware anymore of how many devices we are using. Think about apps on mobile devices, web applications, (serious) games and cars; all examples of products based on software. Smart people are needed to develop those systems. People with technical skills who are aware of the scope and potential of these applications.
What can you expect from us
Business Informatics professionals bridge the gap between users and developers of computer systems. You are the person between the business and IT. A thorough technical base knowledge is absolutely necessary. Furthermore, you’ll learn about important business processes, and how those can be supported through the use of information technology. You’ll learn how to work in an analytical way, enabling you to embed ICT in many different environments.
