In the introductory phase of the study programme, students get started with a concrete project in small teams. Various courses convey the foundations of the field of study and short examples are used to establish links between the subjects. Excursions to regional companies provide an insight into IT professions. After completing additional foundation courses, students dive into their future professional field in the professional practice semester. Alternatively, they can also choose to gain international experience during a semester abroad in semester 4. From semester 5, elective modules allow students to specialise in various focus topics of informatics. The project and bachelor’s thesis round out the study programme.
Study hands-on in an experimental learning environment
Our information society needs capable informaticians. At the Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences, you will acquire a solid foundation and diverse knowledge for the development of high-quality IT systems in small groups and will be prepared for collaboration in agile projects. Our technology labs open up scope for independent and experimental learning. Working in cooperation with regional companies will offer you an insight into differing professional fields – for example, into the diverse tasks of software development, the set-up and ongoing development of IT infrastructures or specific requirements of different industries. An integrated semester abroad or a professional placement semester provides international or professional experience.
Why choose this programme
Successfully starting the study programme in a teamThe students of Informatics and the students of of Business Informatics start their introductory study phase together in interdisciplinary teams. Step by step, they are introduced to the IT infrastructure, and their first project develops from initial, small automation tasks.

Informatics DayAt the end of every winter semester, students from the various informatics programmes present the results of their one-year projects to the public, providing an exciting insight into the diversity of informatics topics.
Software development in agile projects
Diversity of tasks
Informaticians deal with the conception, implementation and use of computer systems, usually solving complex algorithmic, formal or methodological problems. The tasks stem from system programming, the development of software tools and application programming as well as the quality assurance of complex software systems. Since information technology systems are so pervasive, there is no typical branch of informatics. On the contrary, information technology systems are now used in all industries and sectors. They are often also the driving force behind innovations. For this reason, it is important that informaticians learn to familiarise themselves with the language and requirements of the different sectors in addition to their own specialist knowledge.

Informatics is not just programming, but without programming, it is nothing Informatics
The strengths of computer systems lie in their ability to perform schematic processing of even large amounts of information at high speeds. You will learn how these systems can manage technical or business processes and support sustainable developments. Acquiring the mathematical basics is just as important for this process as being able to develop and evaluate models and produce precision programming. Concrete examples are used to test the interaction of hardware and software in business applications, in the Internet of Things and in complex IT infrastructures. The ability to work in a team is an essential skill for the later professional life of informaticians. This is why students work on projects consistently throughout their studies.
