The Department of Informatics is an academic institution at the University of Fribourg active in teaching, research and continuing education in Computer Science and Business Informatics.

We are the only Swiss university department offering degrees in both Computer Science and Business Informatics. Being an interfaculty department affiliated with the Faculty of Science and Medicine and the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences, we develop an “integrative view” of informatics.

Being tri-lingual is another specificity of our department. We use English, French, and German in our teaching as well as daily communication. This linguistic and cultural diversity leads to an enriching working atmosphere that we are particularly proud of and that benefits research interaction between collaborators and students alike.
