EIT Digital Labelled Education

EIT Digital Master School is an exclusive collaboration between the best technical universities in Europe, supported by top research institutes and leading business organisations. EIT Digital Master School offers a two-year education in which students choose two universities in two different European countries, building a curriculum of their choice based on their skills and interests. The Master School offers double degrees which combine technical competence with skills in Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

Each technical programme includes a common technical competence base, which constitutes the curriculum for the first study year, and a specialisation that is the starting point for the thesis work during the second year. In addition, a Minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship provides students with valuable knowledge on how to drive their innovations to the market. A basic course in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, two-week Summer Schools, and the Business Development Labs course are the vital parts of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship module.

Since A.Y. 2021/22 the University of Bologna participates in the EIT Digital Master School with educational offers in two programmes:

  • Embedded Systems:
    Entry university (first year master) with a labelled curriculum on  Intelligent Embedded Systems within the Master’s Degree in Computer Science and Engineering in Cesena Campus.

Each technical programme includes a common technical competence base, which constitutes the curriculum for the first study year in one European university (entry university), and a specialisation that will be the starting point for the thesis work during the second year in another European university (exit university), for a total of 90 ECTS. In addition, a Minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship of 30 ECTS will provide students with valuable knowledge on how to drive their innovations to the market.

Eit Digital Summer School

EIT Digital offers a portfolio of 2-week intensive Summer Schools during which participants can delve into emerging digital technologies and learn how to transform technology into business. During the Summer Schools, which take place in various locations across Europe, participants from different backgrounds immerse themselves in real business case studies originating from the large EIT Digital ecosystem made of accelerators, start-ups and a network of industrial partners.

In 2019 the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the University of Bologna organized a Summer School on “Data Driven Manufacturing with Industry 4.0” at the University Residential Center of Bertinoro. The Summer School saw the participation of numerous companies engaged both in the field of IT technologies and consultancy and in the latest generation digital manufacturing, in a multidisciplinary learning environment that brought together students, universities and companies to foster the progress and diffusion of Industry 4.0.

From 25 July to 7 August 2021, the University of Bologna is organizing a new Summer School on "Big Data for Industry 4.0", which will be held at the University Residential Center of Bertinoro.
