Mission and goals

The programme has the objective of forming engineers who are able of developing Information Technology tools to deal with a wide range of applications. Compared with the Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor) courses, the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programme allows students to deal with more complex multidisciplinary problems, which require a stronger ability to model reality and a deeper preparation to integrate a broader spectrum of advanced technologies and skills. The programme is taught in English, both on the Milano Leonardo and on the Como campuses. However, different specializations are offered on the two campuses, as follows:

  • Interactive applications - Big data - Bioinformatics and e-health - Cyber-security - Networked enterprises and services - Artificial Intelligence - Internet Engineering - Robotics and Vision - Pervasive Systems are available on the Milano Leonardo Campus (see details)
  • Ambient Intelligence - Data and Signal Engineering - Web Science and Engineering - Communication and Society Engineering - ICT Engineering, Business and Innovation are available on the Como Campus (see details)

Moreover, a special track in Sound Engineering and Musical Acoustics is offered in cooperation between the Milano Leonardo Campus – 1st year – and the Cremona Campus – 2nd year (see details).

Career opportunities

Information technology engineers operate mainly in companies that manufacture and supply IT equipment, systems and robotics; in companies that develop products and services based on IT, in private organizations and in Public Administrations that use IT to plan, to design, to manage, to decide, to produce and to run the business.
