The Informatics Study Program provides education in the areas of theoretical foundations of information and computing as well as practical techniques for their application in computer systems
In the current era of globalization, IT (Information Technology) has become an absolute necessity for every organization, including companies in the field of services and goods as well as non-profit organizations. In addition, this technology is also a science that is able to touch the community individually, such as in communication, entertainment and education. Therefore, the need for professional workers in the field of Informatics Engineering is very high both at the national and international levels. Besides being absorbed by the labor market, a graduate of Informatics Engineering can also easily become an entrepreneur with his expertise and creativity in the field of Informatics.
The establishment of the Informatics Engineering Study Program at ITB began with the use of computers under the management of the ITB Computer Center. Supported by the spirit and willingness to develop, formal education about computers began with the opening of the Computer Engineering Department (PAT-JPK) in 1978.
Informatics study program students will also study various computer science topics such as algorithms & data structures, computational theory, programming languages, data & information retrieval, operating systems, artificial intelligence, computer vision, computer networks, software engineering, computer security & cryptography, learning machines, distributed systems, computer graphics & visualization, and other areas of interest.
The program’s curriculum is designed to prepare students to enter the rapidly growing computer field and competitive job market. Its curriculum development is based on curriculum and course recommendations by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers of the Computer Society and the Association for Computing Machinery.
Jobs for graduates of Informatics/Computer Science Programs are generally divided into three pathways:
