Computer Systems and Networks Security - online
The degree course in Computer Systems and Networks Security – online requires that 90% of the study path will be carried out online and the remaining 10% in classroom. The degree programme in Computer Systems and Networks Security – online equips graduates both with a broad, solid and in-depth technological and methodological training in the field of computing, with a specific focus on questions relating to security and privacy (cybersecurity), so as to enable them to handle all issues connected with the production of secure infrastructure or application services, and with a solid knowledge and methodological basis in the main sectors of mathematical, physical and related sciences.
The course is also designed to offer in-depth practical training, equipping graduates to enter all professional, industrial and Public Administration fields engaged in the use and development of secure infrastructure for the distribution of information and access to services distributed. It therefore prepares graduates not only to understand the diverse applications of computing, particularly security and privacy issues, but also to assimilate, understand and evaluate the impact of the continuous technological and scientific advances in the field.
Graduates in Computer Systems and Networks Security – online can easily find placement in different working activities: statistics show that full employment is reached one year after graduation. Among professional roles related to the training provided by the online degree course, there are the following profiles, which will have more and more employment opportunities in companies, public bodies, or as freelancers:
- analysts, designers, managers and consultants of secure information systems;
- security, intrusion prevention and data privacy experts;
- application service developers on computer networks (web service).
Some of the most pertinent market segments are therefore: banks, insurance companies, commerce, logistics and transport, health, public administrations, telecommunications and media, service companies, industry, entertainment.
Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.
Access is conditional on passing an online 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 mathematics, 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.
The programme of study can be enriched by educational experiences in foreign universities, as a way for students to expand their knowledge as well as socializing in a challenging international environment.
They will follow courses to be included in individual study plans under the Erasmus+ agreements with over 50 universities in Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Norway, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, Hungary. The period abroad typically lasts 5 months and includes educational activities for around 30 CFU credits.
The topics cover information and communication technologies and their applications.
The activities carried out are recognised based on the Learning Agreement defined by the student with the Erasmus manager of the Computer Science Department before starting the activities, and on their successful completion. The courses successfully passed abroad will replace activities included in the Student Information Booklet, inasmuch as they cover the same areas or complete basic skills.
A special commission of the Computer Science Academic Board will take care of the recognition of credits earned abroad and the definition of the study plan including these credits. Students can also do an internship at a foreign university to prepare for their thesis. The credit recognition procedure is similar to the one provided for courses.
Highly recommended but not mandatory.

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.
