Studies as a civil servant; information on the Department of General Internal Administration (specialisation in administrative informatics)

The degree programme in Administrative Informatics combines a modern university of applied sciences degree with a crisis-proof employment in the public sector. The course is offered at the University of Public Service, Department of General Internal Administration, in cooperation with the Hof University of Applied Sciences. Internships take place in the computer centres of the administration.


The course of study leading to the degree of "Diplom-Verwaltungsinformatiker (FH)" takes into account the public administration's need for junior staff in the field of ICT techniques and is intended to secure it in the long term.

The administration-specific studies take place at the Department of General Internal Administration of the University of Applied Sciences for Public Service in Hof. The computer science training, which is the main focus of the studies, is carried out in cooperation with the Hof University of Applied Sciences. A practical training at the computer centres of the administration completes the education.

This form of training provides an ideal combination: Well-founded knowledge in information technology and administrative science as well as an overview of the professional requirements of the administration. The close interlocking of practice and theory optimally prepares the students for their later professional employment in a training period of only three years.

Approximately 60 students are recruited each year at the beginning of September. Further information on the content and procedure of the course, the hiring authorities and the application process can be found on the Internet (see "Further links").

Interested students must therefore apply to one of the employers listed on the website under "Application". It is permissible to apply to more than one of the authorities listed there. The employer will then inform you about the further progress of the application procedure and register the interested candidates for the recruitment test at the Bavarian State Office for Digitisation, Broadband and Surveying.
