The Master's Degree programme in Computer Engineering is divided into two paths: Cloud and Cybersecurity, Data Engineering and Analytics. At least one teaching per path is delivered in English. The Cloud and Cybersecurity programme is oriented towards the study and development of secure systems connected to the network. It deals with issues ranging from the management and security of computer networks to operating systems, from the development of applications for distributed and edge platforms, to the design of embedded and real-time systems. The Data Engineering and Analytics programme trains experienced professionals in the management, manipulation, and analysis of large amounts of data. The topics covered range from software design to business intelligence, from the management and analysis of big data to the analysis of texts and graphs, such as social networks.

Programme contents

Each programme proposes a set of compulsory subjects to be completed with subjects selected from the other curriculum, from the Master's Degree in Artificial Intelligence, with related subjects, and other free choices from the University's offerings. The related teachings provide skills in the fields of discrete mathematics, IT law, network technologies and security in the automotive sector. The drafting of the thesis requires the student to carry out an internship in companies or external bodies, or a project activity within the Department.

Job opportunities

Graduates in Computer 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, production, and advanced design, planning and programming, management of complex systems, both in the freelance profession and in-service or manufacturing companies, as well as in public administrations.
