About the Department of Informatics

The Department of Informatics is based in the Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology as of January 2000, but is also one of the three 'home' departments of the formally constituted School of Information Technology.

We see information systems as an interdisciplinary field of study in which information, information technology and the integration thereof with the organization are studied in order to benefit the entire system (individual, organization and society).

Our teaching programmes prepare students to become information systems professionals who are ready to enter the world of work and to function in the multinational and global context of today's information-dependent organisations. Our curriculum is aimed at establishing three basic abilities: the ability to think independently, the ability to integrate knowledge and relevant facts, and the ability to act as a knowledgeable partner of clients outside the domain of computers.
