I.T. location Bamberg
“Bamberg is the perfect location for firms in the fields of information technology of the so-called “New Economy”. The combination of a central location, high quality of living, the University of Bamberg and well qualified human resources makes Bamberg unbeatable.”
Press spokesman of T-Com, Net Management Center Bamberg
In the past few years, the city of Bamberg has established itself as one of the top five Bavarian I.T. locations. More than ten percent of the jobs in Bamberg are in this sunrise industry.
Several of Bamberg’s business firms are leaders in the information and communications sector. With the Net Management Center of German Telekom and the Optical Competence Center of Huawei Technologies, the Bamberg area has extensive expertise in project planning, implementation and support of optical networks. These technologies are also available throughout the city via the high-quality fiber-optic network infrastructure of City Net Bamberg plc.
Germany’s foremost faculty for Information Systems and Applied Informatics at Bamberg’s Otto-Friedrich-University contributes considerably to the region’s success as an I.T. location.
With nine faculty chairs, the I.T. department has an interdisciplinary capability that is at present unique in German-speaking areas. It links business education and business I.T. with humanities and cultural studies, as well as such classical technical fields as theoretical and practical informatics.
