Admission

To be admitted to the Master in Electronics and Computer Engineering (LM-32, Master Degree in Computer Engineering) you must be in possession of:

1) a first level or undergraduate degree (three years) in a scientific or technical area;
2) a second level or graduate degree in a scientific or technical area;
3) a PhD in a scientific or technical area;
4) a title obtained abroad, and recognised as equivalent to one of the previously mentioned titles.

Given the interdisciplinary nature of the course of study, and its declination towards an approach which focuses on the ICT aspects, you can access it even after you have obtained a degree in an area other than Engineering - typically Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Statistics - provided you are in possession of knowledge, skills and abilities in the subjects listed below:

- math and physics;
- computer basics, programming, databases, operating systems, networks;
- electronics, automation and signal processing;
- operational skills in computer science, electronics and electronic measures.

The Italian undergraduate degrees giving direct access, without a prior review of the curricular requirements, are:

- COMPUTER ENIGINEERING (class L-8)
- COMPUTER SCIENCE (class L-31)

The Italian undergraduate degrees giving access to this master degree only after a prior review of the curricular requirements are:

- CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL (class L-7)
- INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING (class L-9)
- CHEMICAL SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (class L-27)
- SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY OF NAVIGATION (class L-28)
- PHYSICAL SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (class L-30)
- MATHEMATICS (class L-35)
- STATISTICS (class L-41)

The curricular requirements are as follows:

- 36 ECTS credits in the field of mathematics, computer science, chemistry and physics (MAT/01-09; INF/01; FIS/01-08; CHIM/01-07; SECS-S/01, SECS-S/02; SECS-S/06);
- 36 ECTS credits within the disciplines of information technology (ING-INF/01-07) or computer science (INF/01) or industrial engineering (ING-IND).

The three-year graduate students who wish to enroll in any case, even having not achieved the credits referred to above, have the opportunity to enroll in individual courses and pass the exams for the missing credits before applying for admission to the master degree program.
It is also necessary to be fluent in English, or at least in one other European language in addition to Italian, also with reference to the technical and scientific vocabulary.
All students who meet the academic requirements will be submitted to the assessment of personal preparation, in a manner indicated by the Academic Regulations for the course of study.

The adequacy of the preparation of the candidate is deemed automatically satisfied if the candidate has a degree in the above mentioned classes that give direct access to the master degree, without a prior review of the curricular requirements (COMPUTER ENIGINEERING (class L-8); COMPUTER SCIENCE (class L-31)); in that case the admission is direct.
Applicants in possession of degrees in a different classes than L-8/L-32, but who meet the curricular requirements, will instead pass an assessment prepared by a committee of faculty, indicated by the CCDS in Electronics and Computer Engineering.
This assessment, at the discretion of the commission, will consist of an oral interview and/or a written test.
The deadlines for the registration are set by the University Didactic calendar.

 

CHECK OF THE CURRICULAR REQUIREMENTS

If you are a student from abroad, without the Italian undergraduate degrees giving direct access:

COMPUTER ENIGINEERING (class L-8)
COMPUTER SCIENCE (class L-31)

you need to check the curricular requirements. This is made by means of following INSTRUCTIONS TO CHECK CURRICULAR REQUIREMENTS
