The second-level Degree in Computer Engineering intends to educate and train highly qualified professionals able to operate in the field of Information Technology, in Communications, in Automation and within all those sectors enabled by such technologies. Therefore, the graduates in this Course will be able to effectively face the relevant challenges and gain employment in a world constantly changing because of information technology.
The following are the cornerstone goals the students of the second-level Degree in Computer Engineering should reach:
- a strong knowledge, theoretical and application base in the different sectors of ICT;
- the knowledge of scientific methods allowing to effectively understand and use ICT competencies;
- a strong knowledge of computer systems, including a well-developed operational knowledge in order to use them;
- a strong knowledge of those automation and control systems being the cornerstone of industrial and advanced robotics;
- a strong knowledge of both basic and advanced methods to analyze, design and maintain ICT systems and networks;
- a specific knowledge of both distributed and mobile systems, as well as their applications to social networks;
- the acquisition of basic elements of professional culture;
- specific skills in effectively using at least one EU language besides Italian during professional activities, especially when producing scientific and technical documents in English;
- skills in working both autonomously and as part of a team, assuming management and coordination responsibilities.
The learning pathway for this Course branches through three specialization areas, as per their specific curricula: Internet-oriented systems, Automation, Industrial Computer Science. Considering both its common path and its specific curricula, this Course entails workshop lessons and exercises, coupled with both individual and group activities having significant practical and experimental contents. It will be possible to carry out such activities within external companis or public and private entities, as well as in University workshops and labs. The latter activities shall be carried out by the students during their dissertation activities, worth 21 University Credits overall.
