Long story short: Media informatic scientists plan and implement IT solutions for the creation of printed, electronic, digital or interactive communication media and provide IT support for media information systems. The possible professional fields are becoming more and more diverse. Whether software, interactive websites, (image) databases or interfaces, as a media informatic scientist you can work wherever media and computer science intermingle.
During their studies, students of media informatics become computer scientists with a focus on digital media and multimedia: For example, they learn how digital media and information systems function technically and how programs for media processing are correctly applied. In addition, the studies provide great know-how for developing, designing, implementing and supporting multimedia software, apps and applications.
In our digital era almost every company needs experts in the fields of computer science and information technology. Therefore, graduates of media information have excellent career prospects.
