Overview

Key facts

One of the defining features of Saarland University's M.Sc. programme in Media Informatics is that it combines practical relevance with a firm grounding in the underlying scientific principles. Students acquire the analytical, creative and practical skills that are needed to develop the software and systems used in digital media. Students also receive training in the necessary design skills through a cooperative arrangement with Saarland's University of Art and Design (HBKsaar). Students take courses in media informatics and informatics, they carry out a media art and design project and also spend a practical work experience phase in a company active in the field.

The programme

Soft-skill seminars are also offered that allow students to develop their communication, presentation and rhetorical skills while consolidating and applying the theoretical knowledge acquired in the taught courses. During the semester-long work experience phase, students gain insight into and an understanding of the professional world of digital media and multimedia technologies. The project-based curriculum enables students to hone their practical media skills and encourages interdisciplinary teamwork. The M.Sc. programme also provides students with an opportunity to participate in current research projects and thus lay the foundation for a future academic career.

Media informatics graduates are employed to plan, design and implement multimedia digital software systems. Typically, graduates are employed to research, develop and design intelligent methods of man-machine interaction, to provide technology consulting and coordination services to companies, to incorporate new media into projects in the journalism and media sector, and to develop edutainment concepts.
