Objective of the Bachelor

The purpose of the Undergraduate Programme in Applied Informatics is to offer a curriculum for those aspiring to acquire the knowledge and skills to become experts in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and for applying these technologies successfully in private and public sectors. It is the only Bachelor of Sciences in Applied Informatics in Cyprus concerned with IT in Management, Economics, Finance, and Business.

The BSc Applied Informatics content is designed to cover all the basics of Applied Informatics and prepare graduates for the increasingly complex technical and administrative responsibilities of ICT systems in the private and public sectors, local government, organizations, and businesses. The core of the BSc Applied Informatics emphasizes both skills and knowledge required for the effective management and development of ICT infrastructure and resources and the broader academic, industrial, and business environment in which ICT is deployed, developed, and evaluated in practice.

The BSc Applied Informatics provides available knowledge in several different areas that compose Informatics, such as Algorithm Design, Software Development, Information Systems, and basic knowledge in the areas of Management, Finance, Economics, and Business where Informatics is applied.

The BSc Applied Informatics provides graduates with technical, analytical, and leadership skills, with the required ethics and responsibility to strengthen their ability to make decisions and achieve organizational improvements in a competitive and fast-changing technological and economic environment.

The basic philosophy of the BSc Applied Informatics is an empirical approach to the study of Applied Informatics. New knowledge and skills are mingled with the students’ abilities and are implemented from the very beginning on real cases.

This approach broadens and deepens students’ understanding of the application of techniques and procedures of ICT. Simultaneously, the BSc Applied Informatics enhances the skills of research, analysis, synthesis, and creativity while it also encourages innovation and alertness on the role of ICT in innovation.

The BSc Applied Informatics consists of 240 ECTS.


Teaching, Learning And Assessment Methods

The BSc Applied Informatics is designed based on the latest recommendations given jointly by two leading international scientific organizations; the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society (CS), and it has been enriched with interdisciplinary courses in the areas of Management, Economics, Finance, and Business. The BSc Applied Informatics aims to provide a broad knowledge on all critical aspects of IT and interdisciplinary subjects through a carefully designed set of compulsory courses together with a wide range of elective courses.

Also, the BSc Applied Informatics offers students a choice to specialize through compulsory concentration courses and electives. The BSc Applied Informatics is divided into two 2-year cycles: the basic cycle and the focused cycle. The basic cycle includes the classic core courses of Informatics and interdisciplinary courses in Management, Economics, and Entrepreneurship. The focused cycle offers the student the opportunity to choose and obtain either specialized knowledge in one or two areas or a horizontal view of the entire scope of Applied Informatics.
