Information Technology ("Informationstechnik")

What is Information Technology?

 

Information systems shape our daily lives. We work with notebooks, listen to music with MP3 devices and are linked worldwide via the Internet and mobile phone. When travelling, we are supported by navigation systems and in hospital, state of the art diagnostic equipment is used. Increasingly robots do complex tasks in industry and household.
Networked sensor-actuator systems are monitoring, controlling and regulating physical and chemical processes.

 

Information technology is concerned with the capturing, processing, transportation and storage of data and information by technological means. Data and information can take on various forms including voice, image, video or text.


 

 

Why study Information Technology?

 

To create information technological innovations, highly trained and creative engineers are urgently required.
They are developing new concepts and products and offer services making our life easier, more efficient and the world a bit smaller via modern information and communication technology.
Rapid change is typical in this area and current products are out of date quickly. Therefore, people who have enjoyed a broad and deep university education are demanded. They are able to think analytically and to understand complex relationships in order to create new knowledge and to persuade in leadership and management positions.

 

The study of Information Technology ("Informationstechnik") at the Alpen-Adria Uniersität Klagenfurt provides these knowledge and skills.

 

 

The three-year bachelor study deals with the subjects of electronics and circuits, signals and systems, measurement and control technology, computer and network technology and computer science and software development, based on mathematical and physical principles. Exercises in modern equipped laboratories and workshops underline the practical relevance. Additional courses to strengthen the soft and management skills are also provided.
