The Master of Science in Computer Science is centered on Data Science & Engineering.

The backbone of the program is constituted by three core units on advanced data management, machine learning, and high-performance computing. Leveraging on the expertise of our faculty, the rest of the program is organized into four tracks: Business Intelligence, Health & Life Sciences, Pervasive Computing, and Visual Computing.

Learning by doing

The program blends traditional classes with:

  • Labs activities and projects development, possibly in collaboration with the industry
  • Internship in the industry or in a research lab
  • seminars and short courses on selected topics

Career perspectives

Graduates qualify as a senior data scientist, senior computer scientist, or pursue studies toward a Ph.D. in Computer Science.

Data as an opportunity

We are witnessing the acquisition of an unprecedented amount of digital data available to virtually all human endeavors. Technologies based on the intelligent use of these data will be increasingly pervasive and likely to lead to great changes in our everyday life.

The know-how and competence required to effectively manage and analyze data are pivotal in the development of technologies able to support experts in the process of decision making or to improve the quality of life by producing smarter and smarter systems or by delivering better services.

Data science and engineering

You will learn:

  • data modeling and knowledge extraction
  • heterogeneous, complex and noisy data analytics
  • how to interact with domain experts and understand their problems and demands
