Who we are
Founded in 2001, the Department of Computer Science at University of Verona promotes and supports a large number of activities in academic research and teaching, from mathematics and computer science to computer engineering and physics.
The Department has approximately 200 professors, research assistants, PhD students, postdoctoral students, administrative staff and technical staff.
It has nine active research areas:
- Bioinformatics and medical informatics
- Experimental and applied physics
- Computation theory
- Software engineering and security
- Mathematics – applications and modelling
- Discrete and computational mathematics
- Cyber-physical systems
- Information systems
- Machine intelligence
The Department offers four Bachelor’s degrees (Computer science, Applied Mathematics, Bioinformatics and in Human Centered Medical System Engineering), five Master’s degrees (Computer Engineering, Mathematics, Medical Bioinformatics, Data Science and Computer Engineering for Robotics and Smart Industry – the latter two being taught in English) and three further postgraduate programmes (Master I in Computer Game Development, PhD in Computer Science and PhD in Mathematics).
The Department of Computer Science’s mission has always been to pursue excellence in academic research in the areas of expertise of its staff, and to offer its students avant-garde courses to keep up with the demands of an ever-changing market.
This is demonstrated by its many academic publications (2000 international publications from 2009-2015), participation in projects financed by national and international entities (26 projects, €7.7 million) and industry collaborations through applied research with a strong focus on technology (7 spin-off initiatives and new companies, 10 patents and 253 projects amounting to €4.8 million).
