Programme profile

The learning outcomes specified in the university degree class regulation are achieved in a curriculum which aims to produce graduates with a solid methodological background, integrated by specific practical skills deriving from targeted experimental activities in the laboratory. The graduates are able to design and manage systems, processes and services in the specific field of Computer Engineering and in other contexts in which information technologies play a key role. For this purpose, students are guided in their understanding of problems, reference models and methods inherent to the design of modern information processing systems, as well as the relative standards and the most advanced technologies available for their concrete application. Particular emphasis is placed on the organic focus on the fundamental principles, the use of examples in the definition of methodological approaches, the presentation of environments and instruments which together support the design of software, operating systems, information systems, computer networks, WEB infrastructures and computer architecture with a system-oriented vision. The specific skills in this field are completed by a solid background in physics and mathematics, by in-depth interdisciplinary knowledge of the specific areas of study laid down in the university degree class regulations for Information Engineering, including Electronic Engineering and Telecommunications Engineering, and by appropriate knowledge of a foreign language.

The first year focuses on basic mathematics, physics and computing.

The second year further studies computing, information and operating systems, broadening engineering training to cover the fields of information and basic business studies.

The third year covers network systems elements and software engineering, as well as elective course units and the final examination.

Expected learning outcomes

This content is not currently available.


The School of Engineering and Architecture allows students to perform an internship in order to get credits (CFU) included in the study plan according to the rules set by the degree programmes.
‘Curricular' internship is a learning activity included in the study plan. It can be compulsory or elective, depending on the degree programme, and can be performed both in Universities or other organizations, in Italy or abroad. Some degree programmes allow students to perform internships in preparation for the final thesis.
Graduates within 12 months after graduation are offered the possibility to perform an ‘orientation' internship in order to get a deeper knowledge of the work field.
Further details on the School website page about internships.

International mobility

As part of its educational opportunities, every year the School fosters programmes and international agreements enabling undergraduates and graduates to attend degree programmes , take exams, participate in company internships or research programmes in the most famous European and extra-European universities or other institutions.
Details about opportunities abroad at the International student office

Access to further study

It gives access to second cycle studies (Master's degrees) and to professional master's programmes.
