The Master's Degree Programme in Information Technology Engineering is divided into three curricula: Data Engineering and Analytics, Industry and Automotive, and Intelligent Cyber Systems. The Data Engineering and Analytics curriculum trains expert professionals in the management, manipulation and analysis of data. The subjects dealt with range from the design of industrial software to operating systems, from the semantic web to the data oriented governance, up to the distributed systems and big data. The Industry and Automotive curriculum has a deeper focus on hardware devices and automation and vehicle manufacturing traditions of the territory. More specifically, the curriculum deals with themes on dedicated and IoT systems, industrial and robot automation, and relevant safety assurance in increasingly more complex and connected digital ecosystems. The Intelligent Cyber Systems curriculum is aimed at studying and developing intelligent and network-connected systems. In particular, it deals with themes ranging from the safety of IT networks to the development of applications for mobile platforms and multimedia data processing, up to emerging technologies of artificial intelligence, machine learning and artificial vision.

Course content

Each curriculum offers a set of compulsory teachings, of which at least one is provided in English, to be completed with teachings chosen among the other curricula, similar teachings and other free choices among the University programmes. Similar teachings offer skills relating to discrete mathematics, IT law, business organisation, network technologies in the automotive field, up to digital electronic design. Drawing the thesis requires the student to take up an internship in a company or external entity, or a project activity within the Department.

Career options

Graduates in IT Engineering are skilled to analyse, design and manage complex and innovative IT systems, and may apply for management and responsibility roles. The professional fields are those of innovation and development, advanced design, planning and programming, complex system management, both as independent professionals and working in service or manufacturing companies, as well as in public administrations.
