The Applied Informatics Study Programme

The Applied Informatics Study Programme has been designed to meet the increasing demand for various profiles in the field of information and communications technology. It is aligned with the needs of IT companies which are looking to employ graduates who will, in addition to theoretical knowledge, have the necessary skills needed to start working on projects straight after getting their degree.

In order to achieve that goal the study programme incorporates, on the one hand, the subjects which provide students with comprehensive basic general knowledge in information communications technologies and on the other hand, subjects which enable students to further specialize and deepen the knowledge in specific areas such as programming, use and development of web technologies, database management, business applications development, electronic businesses etc.

The students can apply and improve the knowledge they have acquired in the Applied Informatics Programme through work placements in the second and third year. A work placement lasts at least two weeks and takes place in an IT company of students’ own choice or in one of the IT companies with which the school has signed a work placement agreement.

The advantage and the attraction of the Applied Informatics Programme is in the fact that these are professional studies lasting 3 years which enable students to acquire practical knowledge in a relatively short period, and soon find employment in an IT company which lacks this type of professionals. Gaining a degree in this program opens up the following IT careers possibilities for students:

  • programmer (C++, Java, Python…)
  • web programmer
  • user interface designer (UI/UX designer)
  • WordPress programmer
  • database administrator
  • database designer
  • computer network administrator
  • IT security analyst
  • IT system security designer
  • Information system analyst/designer
  • e-business system analyst/designer
  • IT manager, etc.
