Second Degree course in Informatics and Robotics Engineering (LM 32)

Objectives

The Master of Science in Computer Engineering and Robotics aims to train engineers in the emerging fields of Data Science and Advanced Robotics, and to provide its students the references and the ability to contribute to innovation and to stay continuously updated with new technologies in the general area of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Graduates will bring the proper approach to all major innovation challenges, and will be able to quickly acquire a leadership role in areas of great interest and fast development, such as the processing and extraction of large amounts of data information; tools and technologies for robotics and automation in all the application sectors.

Admission requirements

The enrolment is regulated in accordance with the rules of access to Italian higher education. A verification procedure of the requirements for admission to the course of study is done before the beginning of the course. Applicant may contact the course board for informal evaluation of the curriculum in advance with respect to formal application. An essential prerequisite to access to the master degree program is to hold a bachelor’s degree, or equivalent qualification obtained abroad, standing at least three years, and recognized as valid, in one of the following areas: Electrical or Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, Industrial Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, Statistics. If needed, preparatory educational activities and recovery of any educational requirements will be organized to homogenize the formation of students of different origin in order to fit adequately in the specific formation process.

Foreign students

There is no limitation to the access of foreign students. Within the Marco Polo program, the Master of Science in Computer Engineering and Robotics allocates 5 reserved positions for foreign students from countries participating the program.
