Admission Requirements

CURRICULAR REQUIREMENTS:

Admission to the study programme is subject to the possession of a degree from a three-year degree certificate, or the acquisition of at least 180 CFU, or other suitable qualification obtained abroad.

Admission to the 2nd cycle degree programme is open to:

a) Computer Engineering Graduates (class L-8 under d.m. 270/04, class 9 under d.m. 509/99) from any degree programme with "computer engineering" in the title. Degrees obtained in Italy which fall under this definition provide appropriate curricula.

b) Computer Engineering Graduates (class L-8 under d.m. 270/04, class 9 under d.m. 509/99) or Computer Sciences and Technologies (class L-31 under d.m. 270/04, class 26 under d.m. 509/99), with a final grade of at least 110/110.

c) Computer Engineering Graduates (class L-8 under d.m. 270/04, class 9 under d.m. 509/99) or Computer Sciences and Technologies (class L-31 under d.m. 270/04, class 26 under d.m. 509/99 with a final grade of less than 110/110 which satisfies both of the following requirements:

1. At least 36 CFU from learning activities in the SSD sectors ING-INF/05 or INF/01.

2. At least 18 CFU from learning activities in the SSD sectors ING-INF/01, ING-INF/03, ING-INF/04.

d) Graduates in other classes than those described above who satisfy all of the following requirements:

1. At least 30 CFU in the SSD MAT/02, MAT/03, MAT/05, MAT/06, MAT/07, MAT/08, FIS/01, FIS/03.

2. At least 36 CFU from learning activities in the SSD sectors ING-INF/05 or INF/01.

3. At least 18 CFU from learning activities in the SSD sectors ING-INF/01, ING-INF/03, ING-INF/04.

The criteria laid down in point d) apply also to students in possession of a university degree obtained abroad and deemed appropriate by the Degree Programme Board, for which the conversion of the degree score to the Italian system, the identification of the subject areas and the number of credits obtained in each sector is possible. If conversion and/or identification are not possible, the students' career will be assessed by the Degree Programme Board.

REQUIREMENTS CONCERNING PERSONAL ACADEMIC PREPARATION

Admission to the 2nd cycle degree programme in Computer Engineering for graduates with a final grade of less than 92/110 (1) is subject to the specific assessment of the students' academic career by the Degree Programme Board.

This assessment shall be deemed positive for candidates satisfying all the following requirements:

At least 66 CFU from learning activities in the SSD sectors ING-INF/05 or INF/01.

At least 27 CFU from learning activities in the SSD sectors ING-INF/01, ING-INF/03 or ING-INF/04

At least 12 CFU from learning activities in the SSD sectors ING-IND/31 or INGIND/35.

(1) For graduates in academic years prior to 2011-2012, this value is reduced to 85/110.

Programme profile

Specific learning outcomes of the programme

The core learning outcomes specified in the university degree class regulations are achieved by a varied course curriculum which aims to produce experts with both a solid theoretical, methodological and technological background, and specific practical skills deriving from targeted project activities which are an integral part of the degree programme. The set of knowledge and skills acquired allow the graduates to take part in all activities concerning the development of even highly complex systems, processes and services in the specific field of computer engineering and in other contexts in which information technologies play an important role.

In an organic and integrated vision, particular emphasis is placed on the development of specialist skills in the field of programming languages and computational paradigms, design of software and architecture for processing systems, operating systems, information systems, distributed systems and computer networks, information security technologies, artificial intelligence, real-time processing and monitoring systems, as well as the organisation, management and optimisation of technological innovation processes.

The curriculum leaves ample room for customisation, with just a few mandatory course units in basic studies, completing practical knowledge, management skills and the English language to level B2. Students can therefore choose from a wide range of practical computer studies in the following specific ICT sectors:

Information Systems,

Distributed systems,

Mobile systems,

Artificial intelligence,

Multimedia systems,

Industrial computing.

Internship

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 thirdcycle studies (PhD/Specialisation schools) and to professional master'sprogrammes.
