Programme profile

Specific learning outcomes of the programme

The core learning outcomes specified in the university degree class regulations are achieved by a varied course curriculum which aims to produce experts with both a solid theoretical, methodological and technological background, and specific practical skills deriving from targeted project activities which are an integral part of the degree programme. The set of knowledge and skills acquired allow the graduates to take part in all activities concerning the development of even highly complex systems, processes and services in the specific field of computer engineering and in other contexts in which information technologies play an important role.

In an organic and integrated vision, particular emphasis is placed on the development of specialist skills in the field of programming languages and computational paradigms, design of software and architecture for processing systems, operating systems, information systems, distributed systems and computer networks, information security technologies, artificial intelligence, real-time processing and monitoring systems, as well as the organisation, management and optimisation of technological innovation processes.

The curriculum leaves ample room for customisation, with just a few mandatory course units in basic studies, completing practical knowledge, management skills and the English language to level B2. Students can therefore choose from a wide range of practical computer studies in the following specific ICT sectors:

Information Systems,

Distributed systems,

Mobile systems,

Artificial intelligence,

Multimedia systems,

Industrial computing.

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.
