Degree in Informatics Engineering


The aim of the Degree in Informatics Engineering is to give students a general grounding in informatics, examine all or most subjects inherent to the field in depth and train them to attain pass one of the areas of specialisation offered by the School.

The FIB currently offers the following areas of specialisation:

  • High-performance architectures and computing
  • Software engineering and information systems
  • Fundamentals of computing
  • Data management and operations
  • System interfaces and integration
  • Advanced programming techniques
  • Telematic networks and operating systems

Some of the optional subject requirements on the new curriculum are the same as those for the 1991 curriculum with regard to passing areas of specialisation.
