Informatics is the science field based on Computer Science and Computational Science. 

In the Informatics programme at Kaunas University of Technology the research is carried out using mathematical models of analysed object or system, creating corresponding simulation algorithms and obtaining the results important for science and practice. 

Educational Opportunity

PhD students investigate the research fields of data analysis, signal and image analysis, simulation modelling, computational intelligence, physically-based behavior, development and analysis of general dynamic models, cryptography algorithms, systems formalization and high-level transformation of specifications, etc. 

Some of the research fields can as also be categorized in the scientific field of Informatics Engineering, depending on the dominant aspect of the model’s implementation – mathematical model of a system or engineering-architectural aspect.
