The Informatics major will focus on preparing students for careers in information and data management, medical and health informatics and clinical research, physical informatics and social informatics. Graduates will be prepared for these pathways by developing skills in understanding, manipulating, visualising, integrating and exploiting data and information; these skills are crucial to many industries, particularly medical/health industries, and research in biological and physical sciences.

Learning Outcomes:

This major will integrate knowledge from a range of disciplines including computing, information modelling and human-computer interaction, by enabling students to complete a sequence of specialist subjects in each, as well as integrated subjects in which the students develop an understanding of the application of informatics to solving current problems in particular domains. Students will gain experience preparing them for the workplace by participating in project based subjects in which they will apply the skills they have learnt to real world problems.
