Master of Science in Informatics

Why study

This programme aims to provide students with a comprehensive grounding in key techniques of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data analysis. The Masters in Informatics (Knowledge and Data Management) is a novel programme that qualifies students to undertake tasks that require researching data, using it to design programmes, and then implementing the programmes in experimental stages. This can be done in a variety of industries such as pharmaceuticals, education, system engineering, manufacturing, communications, transportation, entertainment, defence, computer technology, and government (e.g. e-government). The skills acquired include equipment programming, product testing, executing technical projects from inception to completion, record-keeping and documentation, research, engineering tasks, information and knowledge management, and development and modification of software programmes.

Career prospects

Computer professionals with a Master’s degree in Informatics are employed as programmers, engineers, analysts, language and speech experts, consultants, and managers. They can also be employed in research and development departments, Informatics (Knowledge and Data Management) departments, or even strategic planning departments of business enterprises or government agencies. Another equally exciting career path would be the continuation of the research that has been started for the Master’s dissertation. This will allow graduates to attain a PhD in an area of expertise that is relevant to knowledge development in this region and beyond since all research conducted at BUiD is of the highest international standing.
