MSc in Informatics

USI Università della Svizzera italiana

Contents

The Master of Science in Informatics is characterized by a broad offering of topics and subjects that can be freely combined in a learning path tailored to the needs and interests of each student. At USI, students learn how to understand, design, simulate, and optimize complex software-intensive systems. They master the ability to develop automated solutions, introduce them in different business and application domains, and predict and assess their positive impact in the real-world. Students experience the need for a rigorous approach to guarantee the quality of their work while following the most appropriate software engineering methodologies, techniques and state-of-the-art tools. Students can benefit from the research excellence of our teaching staff by getting involved in ongoing research activities as part of their master thesis project (which can be carried out across the entire second year of the Master). We offer the unique opportunity to obtain a double Master's degree in collaboration with Politecnico di Milano.
