The Master's Degree in Computer Engineering aims to train a highly qualified professional figure, able to operate in the field of Information Technology and Automation and in all the application sectors that these technologies enable. The graduate will therefore be able, with his solid preparation, to face the challenges of a labour market that will offer important opportunities in the wake of technological innovation in the information society. Qualifying educational objectives of the Master's Degree Course in Computer Engineering are:
- the acquisition of solid knowledge, both theoretical and applicative, in the various basic areas of information technology;
- the knowledge of the scientific method of investigation that allows to understand and use computer skills effectively;
- knowledge of processing systems and the development of in-depth operational skills for their use;
- knowledge of automation and control systems at the basis of industrial and advanced robotics applications;
- knowledge of basic and advanced methods for the analysis, design, development and maintenance of computer systems and networks;
- knowledge of distributed and mobile system technologies and their applications in social networks;
- the acquisition of basic elements of professional culture;
- the ability to use the English language effectively in professional activities and relationships including the understanding and production of scientific and technical documentation;
- the ability to work both in teams and independently, also assuming organisational and coordination responsibilities.
The study plan is divided into three areas of specialisation identified by the curricula: Internet-oriented information systems, Automation, Industrial Information Technology. The common curriculum and curricula include lectures and laboratory exercises, as well as autonomous and group project activities with a high experimental and practical content, both in companies or external bodies, public or private, and in laboratories within the University. The latter activities will be specifically carried out during the thesis activity, which offers 21 training credits.
