The IT scenario has deeply changed. The web, the large and ubiquitous availability of computing resources and data, the increasing focus on users requires a specially oriented curriculum grounded on artificial intelligence, data analysis models and computational methods. To this aim the University of Perugia offers a new course that aims at preparing students in new emerging intelligent, mobile and web technologies, data analytics and model, providing them with the opportunity to acquire a technology-oriented background to face the complexity and the challenges of IT innovation. Topics of the course are Advanced mobile computing, Interactive Intelligent Systems, Big Data Management, Web Retrieval and Data Mining, Cloud and High Performance Computing, Human-Computer Interaction, Decision Support and Recommender Systems, Cryptography and Information Security, Applied Image Analysis and Multimedia.
BSc graduated, or equivalent degree with majors in Computer Science, Information Technologies or Information Engineering. Applicants with different background can be admitted upon evaluation and acknowledgement of credits.
