About this course

  • The world is awash with information. In the past five years, we’ve produced and recorded more information than in the previous 50,000 years; and almost all of this new information is digital.
  • Informatics is about using computers to work with digital information – gathering, using, storing, retrieving, and visualising information and data. It is the study of tools and technologies to solve problems in all types of settings, such as finance, economics, journalism, biology, health, engineering, social media and communication.
  • Informatics students map data from a global network of temperature sensors, use linguistic modelling to try to understand how language has changed over time, track global trends in finance and cross-reference against off-the wire news stories. They design web pages, build web applications with a simple and powerful programming language and work with sophisticated graphics processing packages to solve practical information-based problems.
  • Studies in informatics are also available through the Diploma in Informatics.

Careers:

  • Graduates with a major in Informatics can find work in a huge variety of areas, from clinical research in hospitals to managing and interpreting geological data for mining companies.
