A fascination with interactive worlds: media production, web and mobile, programming, a music video in which real and virtual worlds merge, a smart phone app, a complex web application - all of these examples are the products of media informatics. What do they all have in common? Ideally, they all look elegant, perfect, colourful, appealing, interesting and simple on the surface. Behind the scenes, however, the most modern and a quite complicated computer science technology can often be found. A link between "technology" and "user interface" is what characterizes media informatics because it is only with the aid of the most modern computer technology that data, texts, images and language can be prepared, transmitted and processed in a digital form.

Media informatics graduates are computer scientists specialized in the broad spectrum of media applications. This includes aspects of both the design and ergonomic configuration of user interfaces and the technology in the background where media informatics applications are created. A solid technical knowledge of the basics such as computer programming thus represents an essential component of the course.
