Course summary

Informatics is the study of how natural and artificial systems store, process and communicate information. More than just computer science, informatics embraces interdisciplinary connections to understand and model computation and information processing in all its forms.

Edinburgh has a long-standing tradition of world-class research and teaching in many areas of informatics. This programme builds on our interdisciplinary strengths to emphasize developing students' ability to understand and model computation in natural (biological or social) systems. You will choose a base of courses in areas such as bioinformatics, social networks, neuroinformatics, or cognitive science. You can supplement these with additional courses from across the whole School.

Our graduates are well regarded by potential employers worldwide. Many go on to work in the technology industry as software engineers, IT consultants, programmers and developers, and may work with the software and hardware giants that have become household names.
