In the current era of globalization, IT (Information Technol- ogy) has become absolute necessity for any organizations, including companies in the field of goods and services, and also nonprofit organizations. Besides that, this technology is also one of the sciences that are able to touch society individually, such as in communications, entertainment, and education. Therefore, the need for professional labor in the fields of informatics engineering is very high, either in the national or international level. In addition to be absorbed by the labor market, a graduate of Informatics Engineering can also easily become an entrepreneur with his expertise and creativity in science and informatics.
Informatics Study Program provides education on the area of Computer Science and Software Engineering.
Computer Science spans a wide range, from its theoretical and algorithmic foundations to cutting-edge developments in robotics, computer vision, intelligent systems, bio-informatics, and other exciting areas. Computer scientist should be prepared to work in a broad range of positions involving tasks from theoretical work to software development.
Software Engineering is the discipline of developing and maintaining software systems that behave reliably and efficiently, are affordable to develop and maintain, and satisfy all the requirements that customers have defined for them. It seeks to integrate the principles of mathematics and computer science with the engineering practices developed for tangible, physical artifacts. Software engineers should be able to properly perform and manage activities at every stage of the life cycle of large-scale software systems.
