The Information Technology degree programme is designed to provide students with a firm basic and methodological grounding in the main computing sectors, underpinned by a good command of computing methodologies and technologies. The aim of the course is to equip graduates with sufficient, up-to-date training in the various fields of application and the ability to assimilate, understand and evaluate the impact of the constant advances in science and technology.
The course aims to produce graduates who:
- possess a solid basic grounding and a broad sphere of knowledge and competences in the various computing sectors, for use in the design, development and management of computing systems in a vast range of spheres;
- are familiar with the methodology of scientific investigation, possess solid modelling skills and understand and have a good command of mathematical support tools for computer processes;
- are competent in English, as well as Italian, both within their specific sphere of competences and for the exchange of general information;
- can work as part of a group, operate independently and quickly integrate themselves into working environments.
Theory and practice – Ample space is devoted to the fundamental disciplines of computer science: these teachings are instrumental to the acquisition of notions and theoretical concepts that allow us to master both current and future technologies. Theoretical teachings are also supported by teachings of a more applicative nature, which allow students to acquire skills and competences immediately usable. Starting from the first year, students attend computer lab sessions where, supported by teachers, they put into practice what they have learned in theoretical lessons. Furthermore, students are required to develop projects, including working in groups, such as – for example – designing and developing web applications, participating in open source projects, implementing applications that communicate via the network or modifying specific features of an operating system.
The Information Technology degree programme is designed to produce professional figures equipped for immediate entry into the workplace, qualified to assist with professional, technical and operational tasks in relation to consultancy and the analysis, design, management, maintenance and marketing of small and medium-sized computer systems.
Graduates in Computer science are also easily placed in the world of work: statistics show that full employment is reached one year after graduation.
Graduates can work in a wide range of fields in the design and management of computer systems for the design of new systems and applications.
This line of work can be pursued all spheres of the public and private sector which use computer technologies. The most pertinent market segments are therefore: banks, insurance companies, public administrations, service companies and industries, with particular reference to all those sectors which are connected with telecommunications and the media, health, logistics and transport.
Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.
Access is subject to passing a test (TOLC-S, CISIA OnLine Test, www.cisiaonline.it ) which will give rise to a merit ranking.
Additional learning obligations (OFA)
Students who do not pass the entrance examination on maths, are assigned additional learning obligations (OFA, Obblighi formativi aggiuntivi) that they must fulfil in accordance with the provisions of the Programme Structure.
OFA: English language
Students must have level B1 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B1 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) Placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December.
Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.
Altre sedi di svolgimento delle lezioni: Settore Didattico, via Celoria 20; Settore Didattico, via Golgi 19; Didatteca, via Venezian 15.
For students enrolled on bachelor’s, master’s and single cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments of different amounts and with different payment deadlines:
- the first, corresponding to the minimum amount, is the same for all students
- the second - technically referred to as an ‘all-inclusive fee’- that is variable.
Students can also be entitled for tuition fee reductions such as:
- lowering for students who meet high merit requirements
- fixed amounts calculated on the basis of the student's citizenship group for those with income/property abroad
- support for students who have political refugee status.
