Program Introduction

The School of Science and Technology (SST) at UMT offers a 4 years’ Bachelor of Science in Informatics essentially focuses on the procedures and concepts used in the development of advanced software systems. The program helps students with the exploration of the conceptual foundation of Computer Sciences such as its fundamental algorithms, programming language and more. The curriculum provides students with deep knowledge and broad skills regarding modern software and hardware concepts, and introduces students to numerous programming paradigms. In addition, students have the opportunity to choose from a rich set of electives.

The program is designed around a set of core courses that introduce the fundamentals of informatics, software and social analysis of computerization. Diverse specializations such as health care, transportation, governance, social media and security are offered. The major is inherently interdisciplinary, with courses ranging from sociology and psychology to management and public health, depending on the specialization chosen. The informatics major combines fundamental and practical computing knowledge with a choice of cognate areas like creative design practices, app development, ethnography, information management, business IT and other topics, providing students with the necessary background and specialized skills to work at the interface of computing and another discipline. To fulfill requirements for the informatics major, students combine informatics coursework that provides a strong foundation in computing with coursework in one of several cognate disciplines. This approach yields a wide variety of multidimensional programs well suited to the educational and economic needs of the 21st century.

This program is a unique undergraduate degree program designed to prepare students to be agents of change in the undergoing transition to a completely new networking paradigm that is emerging from competing technologies, standards and business models. Graduates of BS Informatics have the capacity to develop ground breaking advances in business, science and more in addition to this they are able to turn data into solutions.
