Informatics is a branch of information engineering. It involves the practice of information processing and the engineering of information systems, and as an academic field it is an applied form of information science. The field considers the interaction between humans and information alongside the construction of interfaces, organisations, technologies and systems. As such, the field of informatics has great breadth and encompasses many subspecialties, including disciplines of computer science, information systems, information technology and statistics. Since the advent of computers, individuals and organizations increasingly process information digitally. This has led to the study of informatics with computational, mathematical, biological, cognitive and social aspects, including study of the social impact of information technologies.
The digital economy refers to a broad range of economic activities that use digitized information and knowledge as key factors of production. The internet, cloud computing, big data, fintech, and other new digital technologies are used to collect, store, analyze, and share information digitally and transform social interactions. The digitization of the economy creates benefits and efficiencies as digital technologies drive innovation and fuel job opportunities and economic growth. The digital economy also permeates all aspects of society, influencing the way people interact and bringing about broad sociological changes.
In this new era of digital economics, Information Technology is continually evolving to meet new needs and overcome challenges that arise from real world implementation. The Bachelor of Science in Informatics for Digital Economy (International Program) is designed for undergraduates with the aim focused on preparation for the next evolution of Information Technology. Informatics is about developing or acquiring information systems and using them to process digital information providing the ability to gather, store, retrieve, visualize and transform data as well as to interpret them into meaningful results which can be applied to further decision making processes. In the B.Sc. Informatics for Digital Economy program, students will study various tools and technologies to solve problems covering many application domains such as economics, finance, marketing, business, management, medical, engineering, manufacturing, etc. Our informatics students are shown how to build IT systems which can store large amounts of data from IoT sensors resulting in Big Data collection, this data can later be fed into a pipeline machine learning model to predict future situations and trends accurately. In addition, students are given the opportunity to design responsive web applications using a simple but powerful programming language combined with polished graphic software packages to solve real-world problems. The above is taught and over seen by a team of professional lecturers dedicated to modern education, the English language is the medium of communication with students, guaranteeing them a competitive edge not only in Thailand but at an international level.
Students in B.Sc. Program in Informatics for Digital Economy have the following outcomes:
⇒ Being able to develop information systems to suit the needs of organizations.
⇒ Being able to innovate digital transformation.
⇒ Being able to analize data from heterogeouse sources and build predictive models for business and to present useful information for decision making.
⇒ Being competent in management, business, finance, and economics, towards entrepreneurs.
Graduates with a Bachelor of Science in Informatics for Digital Economy can find work in a huge variety of areas, from government units to bussiness companies and industries. Some example career outcomes are as follows:
