The Master degree in Computer Science and Engineering has been running at the University of Verona since the academic year 2009-2010. It aims to provide students with the methodological bases for addressing issues related to the design, analysis and development of complex computer systems.
Part of the programme is dedicated to deepening and expanding upon on fundamental knowledge acquired in the Bachelor degree (in Science or Engineering), providing students with a host of tools for looking at complex problems in the field. Another part of the programme provides state of the art knowledge in the main methods of modelling, design, analysis and evaluation of algorithms and systems (hardware and software) able to manipulate data from either discrete or continuous sources.
The postgraduate programme is enhanced by research carried out by the Department of Computer Science of the university.
The goal of the Master Degree in Medical Bioinformatics is to train graduates able to perform executive and coordination functions in the areas of design, development, management and maintenance of information systems in medicine, biology and health systems, with particular regard on biomedical oriented complex software innovation in science and technology for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, to complex information systems for the management of clinical and bioinformatic data bases, software for processing medical and biological data in clinical decision support systems, health information systems with heterogeneous and complex architectures, visual interfaces for bioinformatics. To that objective, the Master Degree in Medical Bioinformatics will provide the theoretical basis, methodological and technological multi- and inter- disciplinary needs to address the problems related to the design, analysis and development of intelligent systems in complex bioinformatics and medical informatics.
The specific educational objectives of the degree course can be articulated as follows:
For the internationality of the scientific, technical and economic aspects of informatics and its applications in Medicine and Health Systems, the training will be entirely offered in English.
