84533 - Project Work on Infrastructures for Cloud Computing and Big Data M

Academic Year 2021/2022

  • Teaching Mode: Traditional lectures
  • Campus: Bologna
  • Corso: Second cycle degree programme (LM) in Computer Engineering (cod. 5826)

Learning outcomes

The project is assigned on an individual base, with a negotiation with the student to identify an area at the state of the art within the field of large middleware systems. At the end of the project, the students have acquired a deep knowledge of the area and also capacity in understanding the global solution strategies. They have to apply the notions and skills acquired in the related class toward a design of a typical (limited) system with some predefined requirements and specific significant technology. The entire execution life cycle is stressed and some performance tests must be pursued.

Course contents

The choice of the topics to organize the project around is part of the final evaluation, the same as the technical repost given in at the end and the presentation of it (slides for project presentation).

The areas to be chosen can be (other areas can be negotiated):
Middleware and service management
Cloud Computing
Scalable global Computing
Federated Data Centers
IoT Cloud
Sustainable Infrastructures for Smart Environments
Smart city Infrastructures
Industry 4.0



See the corresponding reading list of Infrastructures for Cloud Computing and Big Data M

Teaching methods

The student has to design, make the choices, deploy, and complete a project, to be negotiated with the teachers.

Finally you have to provide a presentation of your project and a written report to the teacher in advance.

Assessment methods

The student must present a written report about the project together with the project itself.
Also a presentation about the work done is to be prepared and is going to be discussed.

Teaching tools

Students can choose any significant tool and system for project development and support.
The infrastructure of the support is of paramount importance, more than other minor programming development parts.
