Computer Engineering

  • Wide range of courses: the three curricula allow students to choose the most suitable specialization in line with their interests and inclinations, obtaining advanced training in “modern” areas of computer engineering.
  • Graduates acquire profiles of high professionalism applicable in many contexts, thanks to the effectiveness of engineering approaches to information management problems
  • Possibility of contacts with the business community during studies

The course of study includes three curricula:


  • CYBERSECURITY, with courses focusing on cryptography techniques, data-software-and network-security, and ethical hacking
  • ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND MACHINE LEARNING, with courses focusing on artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision and social network analysis
  • BIG DATA AND HIGH-PERFORMANCE COMPUTING, where students deal with high performance systems, Big Data management and Data warehouses


Students participate in competition examination. Admission requirements can be found in the admission announcement. Enrollment stages are the following:

  • Early (July)
  • Standard (September)
  • Postponed (October/December): if places are still available

After the publication of the final ranking, admitted students can enroll by paying the first fee instalment. Non-EU students can participate in a specific call (March / April); Pre-registration on is required

Course description

The Master’s degree program aims at further developing knowledge of the most methodological aspects of Computer Engineering with particular reference to those requiring a high level of abstraction, allowing students to improve the ability to model reality, acquire adequate knowledge in the integration of different and sophisticated skills and technologies and increase their ability to interact in technological innovation processes. Subjects mainly belong to three sectors: artificial intelligence and machine learning, cybersecurity, big data and high-performance computing.


Students with a three-year university degree or qualification from any Italian university (or a foreign equivalent degree based on legal requirements) with a sufficient number of ETCS in the fields of mathematics, physics and, above all, computer engineering.


The Course aims to help students acquire advanced design skills and the ability to fully exploit technological innovation. This is pursued through the expansion of the theoretical and scientific-mathematical bases of Computer Engineering and modern methods and tools for the design of processing systems.
