Department Overview

The Department of Business Informatics – Software Engineering was established in 1987 at the faculty of Social and Economic Sciences of Johannes Kepler University Linz. The department sees its mission in research and education in both Business Informatics and Software Engineering. Both fields are seen as interdisciplinary areas that must integrate technical, business management and social science contents.

The department conducts both application-oriented and basic research. Our research methods pursue an engineering-scientific approach; this means development from the exemplary, design-oriented and descriptive on to the fundamental, abstract and explanatory – in other words, from practice to theory.

We conduct the major share of our research and development projects in cooperation with other university and non-university research facilities and with companies. An important aspect of the strategic orientation of the department is its international networking with university and non-university research facilities and with partner companies.
