Master's degree in Computer Science and Engineering



The course aims at training students with extensive methodological bases and advanced technical skills to address the issues related to the design, analysis and development of complex information systems.
The students acquire the knowledge and skills required by the course through advanced training that deepens and expands what learned during the three-year bachelor degree, providing a wealth of tools to address complex problems in Computer Science.

In particular, the course provides the scientific basis to fully understand the new information and communication technologies and the theoretical and practical tools to be able to design and implement these technologies. These skills will be acquired through the study of the state of the art approaches related to modeling, design, analysis and evaluation of algorithms and software systems, with particular emphasis for topics related to *software engineering*, *cyber security* and *artificial intelligence*.

The course promotes the acquisition of transversal skills for a complete training that will help students in their future jobs. This is achieved by recognizing an adequate number of university training credits (CFU) to the students who profitably follow the courses specifically proposed by the University of Verona or by other institutions.

Students can carry out internships and theses in research groups that are active in international research projects or in collaboration with local companies. Moreover, students can also address business and market related issues by collaborating with several spin-offs of the Computer Science Park, which is hosted in the spaces of the IT department. Finally, the students have the opportunity to carry out internships abroad thanks to international mobility programs.

Job profiles
The course aims at training professionals able to operate in IT industries in the fields of hardware and software production, industries for automation and robotics, companies and organizations operating in the area of information systems and computer networks, IT services for the public administration, service companies. In these areas, the master graduate in Engineering and Computer Science is called, immediately, to hold managerial roles and coordination of working groups, thus distinguishing himself/herself from the three-year bachelor graduate, whose main vocation is, instead, linked to more executive aspects.

Admission requirements
For access to the master's degree is required to hold at least 60 CFU in scientific disciplinary areas of the group INF / 01 or ING-INF, as specified in the regulation of the course of study, which also indicate the contents and methods of verification of personal preparation.

The tutoring activity is aimed at guiding, informing and assisting the students of the course, and is entrusted to tutors, who are assigned different tasks. To contact a tutor, please contact the counselor for tutoring, Prof. Alessandro Farinelli.

Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS)

As part of the Quality Assurance system, complete, updated and easily available information on objectives, study plan, resources used and results achieved for each degree programme is made available through the SUA-CdS - Scheda Unica Annuale del Corso di Studio (Degree programme annual factsheet). This includes an Overview and three public sections (Learning Objectives, Student Experience, Learning Outcomes) which together provide a wide range of information about each degree programme. The SUA-CdS also contains an administrative section (Administration and Quality Management) that is for internal use only.

The Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS), which is currently available only in Italian, is a valuable tool that can be used by the University to design, implement and reorganise, as well as to evaluate, each degree programme. However, the SUA-CdS factsheet is also useful for students, to help them choose the right programme of study.
