The second-level Degree in Computer Engineering intends to educate and train highly qualified professionals and specialists, able to operate in all the sectors of ICT and within all those sectors enabled by such technologies. Therefore, this Course shall provide, besides a solid knowledge base, all the specific knowledge concerning those methods, techniques and tools being useful in developing “quality” ICT systems, as well as all the technical and professional competencies needed in using such knowledge in resolving specific application issues.
The following are qualifying objectives within the second-level Degree in Computer Engineering:
- 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 specific knowledge of those principles and structures underlying data processing systems, including the development of the specific operational and working knowledge needed to use them;
- a strong knowledge of both basic and advanced methods to analyze, design and maintain ICT systems and networks;
- a well-developed knowledge in different application sectors;
- the acquisition of basic elements of professional culture and business management;
- 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 study plan for this Course allows its students to define specifuc learning pathways, themselves useful in focus the acquired knowledge into specialized paths. However, such paths include all the activities needed to fulfil the aforementioned Objectives. In particular, 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. The dissertation for this Course entails a significant number of University Credits (from 21 up to 27) due to the specific, time-consuming commitment required.
