Data and information play a pivotal role in today’s digital society and in times of "big data". Enterprises, politicians and the sciences all require reliable information in order to make sound decisions. Being able to analyze huge amounts of data and to provide the right information at the right time, in the right quality and at the right place is a crucial task.

Data and Information Scientists are specialists in retrieving, analyzing and organizing data and information and have a solid knowledge of the technologies and tools that are required to do so. Programming skills, mathematics and statistics therefore play an important role in this Bachelor's program.

Further information on the Bachelor's program Data and Information Science is available in German: Data and Information Science (Bachelor).
