Educational objectives
Hide
Graduates of this course should have knowledge in various fields of science and technology aimed at both the use and management aware of existing computer systems , both in the design and development of new computer systems. To this end, the graduate must acquire an ' adequate knowledge of the basic areas of computer science as well as of the fundamental aspects and support tools of mathematics. Therefore, in accordance with the guidelines of National Associations ( GRIN ) and international ( ACM) in the field, the trail provides : - The acquisition of basic knowledge of physics and mathematics is that of the continuous discrete; - Knowledge of the principles, theoretical models and architectures of computer systems and communication networks; - Knowledge and use of operating systems; - The acquisition of elements of design and analysis of algorithms and data structures; - The acquisition of modern programming methodologies as well as knowledge of programming languages representative of the main programming paradigms; - Assimilation of the principles for the design and the systems for the management of databases and related technologies; - The acquisition of the techniques for the design and implementation of computer systems; - The acquisition of methods and techniques for the analysis and computer processing of experimental data . The course also includes : - The acquisition of interdisciplinary knowledge in related fields also; - An appropriate number of credits reserved for lab courses as well as the laboratory exercises provided in other courses; - Outdoor activities such as internships in companies, public administration and laboratories, as well as periods of study at other Italian and foreign universities, also within international agreements. - An appropriate number of credits for elective courses in order to better enable students to complete their preparation targeting it to specific interests, in consideration of the pervasiveness of information science and technology in the modern information society; - external activities such as internships in companies, public administration and laboratories , as well as periods of study at other Italian and foreign universities, also within international agreements. The educational programme, over the three years , is divided in the following way : 1. In the first year , in addition to learning basic math, the course provides the scientific foundations of computer science, the first courses about programming and data structures , and the basics of architectures and operating systems needed to address the following years 2. In the second year the mathematical- physical preparation considered necessary for the professional figure of computer scientists is completed and the courses in the various areas prepared by GRIN, in order to provide the student with a thorough preparation on major aspects of computer science. 3. The third year, in addition to specific professional computer activities, provides internships or apprenticeships enabling students to make their first experiences in the world of work.

Final examination features
Hide
The degree in Computer Science is obtained after passing a final examination consisting of the discussion of a paper, prepared under the guidance of a supervisor, related to the development of a plan regarding the analysis of a specific problem and the choice of the most adequate methods and technologies for its solution. The project work might be carried as a completion or integration of the internship period at research facilities, companies or public administration facilities. The final examination is considered as the conclusion of an important activity for the professional development of students, and therefore it is awarded with a significant credit amount.
