As a product manager, knowledgeable in all IT processes and familiar with the wishes and requirements of customers, you will implement this broad-ranging knowledge in the development of the products.


Informatics for the society of tomorrow – Socio-informatics is a new and dynamic area of computer science. You research and recognize trends in our digital society and develop new product strategies.
