The objective of the teaching at DTU Informatics is to offer high-quality research based teaching for both bachelor- and master-students, at the ph.d. level and to continuing education.
The requirements of teaching at the institute are twofold: firstly on a scientific level to ensure that all candidates from DTU have an education in mathematical modelling and information technology, secondly to educate specialists within the expertices of the department itself.
At the Department of Informatics and Mathematical Modelling we find it important to ensure that both teaching and research is problem-based on relevant, actual problems. It is considered one of the departments strengths to be able to cover the whole spectrum from basic research to industrial applications. Research projects at DTU Informatics are very often conducted in close collaboration with research-oriented industry, hospitals or other public institutions.
The teaching- and research-topics at the intitute can broadly be characterised as information-processing and the construction of computer systems. Focus is on applications within the engineering-sciences. Information-processing is concerned with methods for processing the ever-increasing flow of information seen nowadays and the development and handling computer-based mathematical models for problems seen in the engineering-sciences, e.g. industrial production, planning and economics, and the life sciences. Construction of computer systems is especially concerned with the technological development of solutions to fit the information society of the future. It involves a broad spectrum of mathematically oriented competences.
