Programme profile

The learning outcomes specified in the university degree class regulation are achieved in a curriculum which aims to produce graduates with a solid methodological background, integrated by specific practical skills deriving from targeted experimental activities in the laboratory. The graduates are able to design and manage systems, processes and services in the specific field of Computer Engineering and in other contexts in which information technologies play a key role. For this purpose, students are guided in their understanding of problems, reference models and methods inherent to the design of modern information processing systems, as well as the relative standards and the most advanced technologies available for their concrete application. Particular emphasis is placed on the organic focus on the fundamental principles, the use of examples in the definition of methodological approaches, the presentation of environments and instruments which together support the design of software, operating systems, information systems, computer networks, WEB infrastructures and computer architecture with a system-oriented vision. The specific skills in this field are completed by a solid background in physics and mathematics, by in-depth interdisciplinary knowledge of the specific areas of study laid down in the university degree class regulations for Information Engineering, including Electronic Engineering and Telecommunications Engineering, and by appropriate knowledge of a foreign language.

The first year focuses on basic mathematics, physics and computing.

The second year further studies computing, information and operating systems, broadening engineering training to cover the fields of information and basic business studies.

The third year covers network systems elements and software engineering, as well as elective course units and the final examination.

Third-year students may choose to carry out a curricular internship lasting 225 hours (9 academic credits) in a private firm, public organisation, professional office or university structure, either in Italy or abroad.

Chairman of the Internship Committee
Prof. Luigi Di Stefano

At the student's request, the Degree Programme Board may allow, with the procedures established by the General Regulations of the University for the execution of internships or by international agreement for internship mobility, and in compliance with Community rules, students to pursue an internship in order to write his/her thesis / dissertation or in any case to improve his/her learning and training process through an educational project.

These learning experiences must be completed by the date of dissertation. Credits can be allocated to them:

• as part of those assigned to the thesis/dissertation;
• for internship activities provided by the Course structure diagram;
• for elective learning activities which can be set also as internship;
• for additional activities whose credits will exceed those necessary to achieve the degree.
