Message from the HOD

Welcome to the Department of Informatics!

Informatics is an interdisciplinary field of study in which information, information systems, as well as its integration with the organisation, are studied in order to benefit the entire system (individual, organisation and society).

We are a dynamic team in the department that offers a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate modules in the EBIT and EMS faculties. We are proud that our undergraduate degree is ABET-accredited and that we can confidently send our students into the industry with the knowledge that they have received an excellent education of international standard.

One of our strengths is our growing number of postgraduate students, who support research activities in our different research focus areas. These research focus areas cover topics in IT Management, IS and Education, ICT for Development (ICT4D), Data Science and Human Computer Interaction (HCI).

Please feel welcome to contact the department with your enquiries about our exciting opportunities.
