Computer Science Studies at the University of Zurich – Welcome to the IfI

At the Departement of Informatics (IfI) we have a strong focus on these topics:

  • The implementation of informatics in economy and society 
  • The interaction between persons and computers

Look behind the curtains of labs and selected research areas of the Department of Informatics.

What we offer

There is a difference between the IfI and the Departments of Informatics of other Universities due to its affiliation to business and economics. The interface between economy and informatics has immense future potential in this period of digitalisation. 

If you study Computer Sciences at the IfI, you learn to shape the digital world of tomorrow – whether in online trading, health care, finances or media. 

At the IfI the students select their Major and Minor according to their preferences. In this way they form the education to an individual specialization. This specialization is visible in the degree certificate and will enhance the job market opportunities.  

The University of Zurich is member of the LERU network (League of European Research Universities). Due to that the admission process for our students  to a prestigious foreign University is relatively easy.

After having finished her PhD at the Department of Informatics in 2016, Irina Todoran Koitz has been working as Application Manager at Siemens.

  • solving complex problems
  • abstract thinking 
  • working systematicalla and with accuracy
