receiving the abitur and doing some odd jobs my parents urged me
to do something with my life ;). So I decided, in the Spring
1997, to apply for a course called Medieninformatik at the
Hochschule Harz and some other universities.
a sunny morning in October 1997, I arrived on the campus in Hasserode,
which is a district of Wernigerode. I decided to take my time and
give it a chance, which I never regretted.
The Hochschule Harz is a university of applied studies and research
which makes it different from general universities because the studies
(standard period is 8 semesters) are more focussed on practical
exercises then on scientific theory. Two semesters
at the end of the basic studies and main studies respectively have to be absolved
off the campus in companies as internships.
The studies of digital media is developed from the faculty of
business. In comparison to a Information Technology faculty, one may concentrate more on applied studies with information
technology being used for digital media, graphic design and coding. So if you want to count bits in
wires try it somewhere else.
You also get an overview of german and international laws connected
to these topics. A lot of projects are completed in teams, which results
in chaos, or near perfection, and definitly leads to an education
of the person himself or herself, which is rare in other universities.
