Overview

The master’s degree in Computer Engineering aims to provide an adequate and in-depth knowledge and experience of the modern methodological and operational aspects of engineering sciences concerning the specific area of computing and information processing systems, allowing the graduate students to develop their ability to identify, formulate, and solve the typical problems of the area, using innovative and updated techniques and tools, even in the face of the extremely rapid evolution of methods and technologies. The skills and knowledge acquired in the previous three-year courses are used as a basis to complete an overall training path that allows the graduate in computer engineering to acquire the conceptual and methodological tools to place the solutions in the most diverse operational contexts, as well as to properly predict and contribute to the evolution of the overall knowledge in this area.

Programme structure

The degree provides four different curricula:

- “Artificial Intelligence and Robotics”
- “Bioinformatics”
- “High Performance and Big Data Computing”
- “Web Information Systems Engineering”

Career opportunities

The pervasive diffusion of computing and information processing systems in each working sector makes virtually unlimited the occupational and professional fields for graduates. A computer system is present in any device, function or structure aimed at the detection, processing, transmission, archival and search for information, and any description of the employment and engagement possibilities for graduates cannot be complete, also due to the fast evolution of the discipline which is an enabling tool for new and more modern types of applications. Computer engineers are of interest to companies that design, develop, engineer, and produce computing components and systems, and to those that develop systems and equipment in various sectors for which information technology is an enabling element, such as automotive, biomedical, telecommunications, avionics, process automation, robotics. There are also good opportunities in companies operating in the civil sector, the sectors of public administrations and service companies. Graduates will be able to continue their studies towards research doctorate courses in the area of Information Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Applied Sciences.
