Professional profiles

The Master of Science in Engineering and Computer Science aims to complete the didactic-cultural paths started with the three-year degrees in classes L-8 and L-31, and to train IT professionals with specific skills and design skills. The development of the course with an inter-class method allows to establish a stronger and more fruitful interaction between the disciplinary areas pertaining to the two classes and an enrichment of the themes related to the modern approach of creating and managing complex IT systems. Master's degrees will obtain skills in: analysis and formalization of complex problems, in various application contexts; design and development of high quality algorithms and IT systems, including innovative ones, for their solution; design in areas related to information technology, in the sectors of industry, services, environment, health, cultural heritage and public administration. The course aims to provide skills in:

  • distributed systems, with particular reference to cloud computing and resource sharing, and to the configuration and management of calculation systems adaptable to user needs;
  • wireless systems and internet of things, acquisition of skills for the management and analysis of big data generated by objects connected on the Internet;
  • multimedia systems, focusing in particular on issues relating to the web;
  • theoretical-scientific aspects of mathematics and other basic sciences and the ability to use this knowledge to interpret and describe complex problems and / or that require an interdisciplinary approach; Document approved by: Council for the Degree Course in Engineering and Computer Science: Meeting of 20 June 2019 Department of Engineering Council: Meeting of 20 June 2019
  • theoretical-scientific aspects of engineering, both in general and in depth in relation to those computer engineering, and the ability to identify, formulate and solve complex problems and / or that require an interdisciplinary approach in an innovative way;
  • conception, planning, design and management of complex and / or innovative systems, processes and services, with particular reference to distributed information systems, computer networks and the production and management of multimedia data;
  • design and management of highly complex experiments.

The course of study is mainly delivered in English. This choice also has the aim of facilitating the insertion of graduates in an international job market. Among the activities that master's degree graduates will be able to carry out are: the analysis and formalization of complex problems, in various application contexts, the design and development of high quality algorithms and IT systems, including innovative ones, for their solution; design in areas related to information technology, in the sectors of industry, services, the environment, health, cultural heritage and public administration.
The choice of subjects to be included in the various areas allows the student of the Master's Degree Program to create well-defined training courses, in which to enhance both computer engineering and information science skills. In particular, specialist courses will be offered on:

  • computer and communication networks; in this context, students are trained in the design of networks, focusing in particular on security issues;
  • distributed systems with particular reference to cloud computing and resource sharing, learning to configure and manage computer systems that can be adapted to user needs;
  • wireless and internet of things, acquiring skills for the management and analysis of big data generated by objects connected on the Internet;
  • multimedia systems, in particular related to web-related issues. The employment opportunities and professional activities of the Master of Science in Engineering and Computer Science are those of a computer expert with specific professional knowledge, oriented to targeted sectors of computer science, who are able to deal within a company, research and development of innovative products and processes, organization of laboratories, product development and also business organization.
