Thinking of terms like “Information Society” or “Information Era” it becomes quite evident that information is one of the most valuable goods in today‘s economy. In times of global networking and dynamically changing economic and working environments, success increasingly depends on effective information and knowledge management. Efficient information processing or good information logistics is inevitable when data have to be acquired and information has to be delivered in the right format, at the right place, at the right time and to the right people. At the same time, acquisition, validation, presentation and data security have to meet very high standards. A dynamic environment like this needs individuals with a broad range of skills and knowledge who are able to understand and realise the requirements of information management from design and development up to the implementation of suitable IT solutions.
The unique master‘s degree programme in Information Engineering and Computer Science, offered by Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences, has been designed to meet those needs.
