Nowadays Computer Science has applications in several fields that are very different from each other and in constant increasing number. UNICAM offers the Master Degree in Computer Science (Laurea Magistrale) to allow graduate students in Computer Science to specialize their knowledge, competences and skills. Different specialization programmes are proposed within the Master Degree together with the possibility to gain, in addition to the UNICAM degree, a Master degree awarded by a partner University (Double Degree).
The degree, being in collaboration with European and international institutions, is completely taught in English. Students at UNICAM are immersed in an international environment with foreign students coming from different Countries. They can participate to international exchange programs such as Erasmus+ or Double Degree and spend a semester or one year abroad for exams and/or thesis. Double Degree programs are available together with the Reykjavik University (RU) in Iceland, the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) in Switzerland, and the Universidad Nacional de Catamarca (UNCa) in Argentina. Scholarships of merit for supporting the mobility are offered to exchange students through UNICAM funds (if available) or, for European locations, through the Erasmus+ program.
Students willing to enroll to the Master of Science in Computer Science must have a Bachelor Degree or an equivalent foreign degree as long as that is known to be valid under current regulations. To be admitted to the Master degree it is required to have a certification for the English language at least of level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, or at least 3 ECTS credits of English courses taken during the Bachelor. Students with an Italian Bachelor Degree in Computer Science (L-31 class) access the course with no further checks, while for any other kind of Bachelor Degree the presence of sufficient knowledge, competences and skills of Mathematics and Computer Science will be checked before the student is admitted to the program.
The Master of Science (Laurea Magistrale) in Computer Science allows to access the "Albo Professionale dell'ordine degli ingegneri" (National Engineer's Register), section A, sector "Information Engineering". To access the Register, a student must pass a special exam (Esame di Stato), for which UNICAM is an entitled site (DPR n. 328 in 5/6/2001 published on GU n. 190 in 17/8/2001).
CISCO activities, certified by the Cisco Networking Academy Program, are available as part of the degree program. This is another important opportunity for our students as Cisco Networking Academy Program is introductory for CISCO Industrial certifications, which are highly spendable in the job market.
The Master program obtained the GRIN (Gruppo di Informatica) certification that guarantees high quality standards with respect to Computer Science Master degrees of Italian Universities.
