Master in Computer Science

General

Program Description

The International Master Degree Course in Computer Science aims to develop a system of education and academic exchange, in a spirit of cooperation at European level. The Course is offered in an inter-university international collaboration with the Alpen-Adria University of Klagenfurt (Austria), where some courses will be held. It allows students to obtain a joint degree. At the end of their studies, students will write a thesis in English and discuss it in both universities.

Graduates of the Master Degree Course in Computer Science are prepared to work with originality, in the fields of research and development; planning; programming; work management; quality control; management, maintenance and verification of software and systems for the generation, transmission and processing of information, in sectors as diverse as: industries, IT and ICT services, public administrations, healthcare, scientific research, environment and territory, culture and cultural goods, multimedia and, in general, all organizations which make use of complex information systems.

The didactic organization of the Course aims at building up the theoretical and methodological bases acquired during the three-year undergraduate degree in Computer Science, and technical knowledge, so as to prepare graduates to access jobs of technical or managerial responsibility, or to continue their studies at a PhD level or II Level Master, in Italy or abroad.

The advanced technical skills acquired include particularly up-to-date computing disciplines required by the national and international labor market, such as Computer Security, Computer and Network Architecture, use of Artificial Intelligence systems for the creation, use and management of systems, Workflow and Data Warehouse Systems, Interactive Systems, Computational Linguistics, and its applications.

Selection rules

  • The international master program has 20 slots per year.
  • A selection interview for each interested student is organized.
  • The student must have a bachelor (or she/he will obtain the bachelor diploma in a couple of months) in computer science or in “close” topics (e.g., information engineering, applied mathematics). The interview can be made physically in Udine or virtually (e.g. using Skype).
  • To participate in the interview, send an email to Professor Angelo Montanari with the subject: “Interview for Master in Udine-Klagenfurt”.
  • In the email please add a link where your CV can be downloaded. In order to be enrolled in the academic year, your email should be sent before 15th June of the said year. Courses start at the end of September each year. After the selection, if you are in the top-20 list you should register to the University (refer to the admission rules in the brown menu of this page).
  • It is crucial that you are already in Udine for that time, so organize your travel and stay in advance (including VISA requests if you are not EU member).
  • If your CV is positively evaluated but you are not in the top-20 list, you might consider registering to the national master program that shares several courses with the international program. All classes are taught in English as soon as at least one student asks for that.

Professional opportunities

Upon completion of their studies, graduates obtain the degree of “Diplom-Ingenieur” in Computer Science from the Alpen-Adria University of Klagenfurt and a Master Degree in Computer Science from the University of Udine.

Graduates with an International Master Degree in Computer Science will be able to cover professional roles in the fields of planning, programming, creating, organizing, and managing information systems, in a variety of sectors, such as industries, IT and ICT services, public administrations, healthcare, scientific research, environment and territory, culture and cultural goods, multimedia and, in general, all organizations which make use of complex information systems, at a national and international level.

Like graduates of the Master Degree in Computer Science, those with an International Master Degree in Computer Science can participate in the selections for higher levels of university education, such as a Ph.D. in Computer Science (in Italy and abroad). Moreover, International Master graduates who obtain an Italian qualification in the Class LM-18 Computer Science can be admitted to the Register of Engineers, Section A, Information Sector, after passing the State Qualification Exam.

Finally, International Master Graduates can also seek a teaching career in schools after having completed the teaching qualification procedure, in compliance with the legislation in force.
