Instead of simply learning model informatics from a textbook, you will make connections to and apply what you're learning directly in practical applications. At the same time, you will hone decisive skills such as team work, communication and creativity that you can apply in your career in IT. 

Length of training

The practice-integrated Bachelor's program lasts 4 years.
