Learning outcomes

Today, many processes and procedures in the health care industry are only possible through comprehensive IT support. Informatics provides the healthcare industry with IT solutions and works predominantly at the intersection of IT, medicine, nursing care, pharmaceutics, medical technology and administration. Accordingly, there is a high demand for qualified health computer scientists in the following fields:

  • IT departments and data centres in hospitals and practices
  • Health insurance companies
  • Pharmaceutical industry and medical technology
  • Healthcare organizations such as medical care centres and hospital and clinic networks
  • Service industries in healthcare (logistics, software development, consulting)

The aim of the programme goes beyond the basic objective of “employability” toward professional proficiency and career success. 

The focus is on hands-on, solution-oriented and implementation-oriented competencies in an international context, which are gained through concrete, practice-based projects and real-life case studies. Competencies in the areas of Health Care, eHealth, Research and Methodology as well as Soft Skills will be developed through a module-based course structure. Within the modules, synthesis and synchronization will be achieved through translating knowledge into concrete case studies (deduction and induction). As a rule, case studies, projects and “hot topics” make up approximately 50% of each module.
