Information Management and Media: Academic Program
Today’s young professionals are continuously required to gain a broad expertise and face complex tasks and challenges upon entering the workforce. At the same time, shaping our society in a more sustainable and responsible manner within the context of a working environment with rising digital influence has become increasingly more important.
The Faculty of Information Management and Media was founded in 2012. Its 25 faculty members are devoted to teaching and research in various fields, focusing on sharing acquired, situation-based or personal data, its processing as well as the effective dissemination of data.
Our students are expected to play an active part in this dynamic process. They gain expertise by participating in interesting, active and practice-oriented courses with the goal of successfully meeting the challenges they will encounter in their professional life. The department is equipped with a number of state-of-the-art computer facilities and labs where students can become familiar with the latest software and technical innovations.
