Objectives and special features

The Master course in Applied Informatics at Bremerhaven University is application-oriented. This is reflected in the three alternative course profiles “Reliable Integrated Systems”, “Media Informatics” and “Complex Business Application Systems”.
The focal point of the Master course is a comprehensive one-year project in which students acquire skills in informatics methods and develop strategic solutions through problem-oriented learning. When applying for the course, students select a project from one of the said profiles. With the projects and other electives related to the profile, students gain a special perspective on informatics. In this way, they can set a corresponding priority in their studies and specialise in this course profile.

  • The “Reliable Integrated Systems” study profile considers in depth the complexity of distributed and, where applicable, mobile applications with regard to security issues or cooperation between autonomous systems.
  • In the “Media Informatics” study profile, the various aspects of designing multimedia systems are tackled and put into practice in a concrete field of application such, for example, as game-based learning.
  • The “Complex Business Application Systems” study profile takes up in detail elements of business informatics and connects the different worlds of informatics and business administration.

  • 3-term full-time course with a high level of practical content
  • Three alternative study profiles: Reliable Integrated Systems, Media Informatics, and Complex Business Application Systems
  • Comprehensive project integrated in the study profiles
  • Qualification as Master of Science (M.Sc.)
  • Limited to 20 course places per year
