The School of Engineering offers a Laurea Magistralis (Master of Science) program in Computer Engineering. Students may choose from three different tracks:
The Computer Science and Multimedia curriculum includes Multiprocessor Architectures, Computer Networks, Performance Evaluation, Multimedia Systems and Technologies, Computer Vision, and Human-Computer Interaction.
The Embedded and Control Systems curriculum includes Automation and Advanced Control Systems, Process Control and Control of Robotic Systems, Embedded, and Real-time systems.
The Data Science curriculum includes machine learning and deep learning techniques, data modelling and analysis (statistical learning and data analytics), Big Data in the geospatial, biomedical and financial fields.
Lectures are integrated with lab activities, seminars, and tutorials, delivered by industry leaders and visiting professors from all over the world.
Bachelor’s degree (D.M. 509/’99 or D.M. 270/’04), postgraduate Master’s degree (legislation previous to D.M. 509/’99), or a three-year diploma or other officially recognized study titles awarded abroad.
A computer engineering, computer science, and engineering background proved by your transcript
Knowledge of the English language at a level no lower than level B2 of the CEF (Common European Framework)
A strong final ranking/current average
In some cases, a legalized translation of Degree Certificates into Italian by the Italian Consulate is also required. Lower-income students are entitled to apply for EDISU scholarships.
Degree, Internship, and Thesis
Our educational activities greatly benefit from the vibrant international research activity carried out by faculty assigned to the Computer Engineering Master Programme. Many courses include lab activities where students can practice and be involved in experiments relating to course topics. The labs dedicated to teaching activity are equipped with modern electronic instruments and computers, as well as state-of-the-art software tools and experimental set-ups. MS students develop a thesis with a University of Pavia Tutor. Typically, a thesis is an innovative project, an experimental system, or a research study. Research activity is performed during the last MS semester in University labs and/or in companies and bodies with specific agreements with the University.
Moreover, a Ph.D. School in Electronics, Computer Science, and Electrical Engineering has been operative for over twenty years at the University of Pavia which is designed to train researchers with a cultural background that fits the innovation requirements of today’s Information Society, from the standpoint of both scientific originality and design ability.
Throughout the International Master Programme in Computer Engineering students will improve their technical and scientific skills, as well as their ability to operate at an international level. The job market for a Computer Engineering Graduate offers many possibilities and it is still evolving. The most common professional fields are:
design and management of information systems
design and management of architectures, infrastructures, and advanced services for networks and Web
design and analysis of systems of real-time processing and for specialized applications
design and development of systems and multimedia processing environments
design of automation systems for the industry and the services
design, supervision, and control of robotic systems
design methodologies for modelling, simulation, and control of complex systems
All the members of the teaching staff have lasting and fruitful collaborations with leading companies in Automation, Computer Science, and Service Systems Engineering nationally and internationally. Interesting job opportunities for graduate students can be created in Italy and abroad thanks to the involvement of teaching staff in European or International Projects involving companies and research centers. Our students will already be interacting with foreign companies at the time of their graduation project which can even be developed abroad with the support of an ERASMUS Placement.
