Mathematics

Technische Universität Graz (Coordinator: Pietro Corvaja)

The Technische Universitaet Graz is a world renowned institution  in the field of Engineering, Physics and Mathematics. It includes five mathematical institutes: the Institute of Analysis and Number Theory, the Institute of Applied Mathematics, the Institute of Discrete Mathematics and  the Institute of Geometry. The strongest link with Udine University passes through the Institute of Analysis and Number Theory, which hosts research groups in analysis, number theory, algebra and financial mathematics.

Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Coordinator:  Rossana Vermiglio)

Nowadays the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) https://www.ntnu.edu, whose history dates back to 1910, is the largest university in Norway. In fact the city of Trondheim, whose population is about 180 000, welcomes 33 000 university students. NTNU is a university with a main profile in science and technology. It is important to recall that in 2014 May Britt Moser and Edward Moser, both employed at NTNU, have received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. At NTNU there are the Department of Mathematical Sciences and Department of Computer Science and so the Erasmus Studio exchange program involves the students either of mathematics or computer science. The interested students can easily find the courses taught in English in Trondheim by using the online course catalog. In what follows some examples are given.

Mathematics Algebraic Topology, Complex Analysis, Mathematical Modelling, Partial differential equations, Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations Using Element Methods Computer science Cryptography, Supercomputing, Introduction, Bioinformatics – Method Oriented Project, Bioinformatics – Applied Project, Computer Vision and Deep Learning, Parallel Computing

Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Coordinator: Giovanna D’Agostino)

A big University in a european capital, with many courses both at bachelor and master level.  Most of the courses are in spanish, especially at bachelor level. In Spain the bachelor last 4 years and the master is   specialized  and last one year.

Udine “magistrale” students  can choose courses from the 4^th year of bachelor or  from the master.

University of Southern Denmark (Coordinator: Giovanna D’Agostino)

Although the exchange is open at bachelor and master levels, the Odense exchange is better suited for master studies, both in Mathematics and Computer Science. It is particularly recommended for students interested in Bioinformatics.

Computer Science

Facchoschule Wiesbaden (Coordinator: Enrico Bozzo)

The University of Wiesbaden has strong regional ties in the Rhine-Main  region and features computer science courses focused on laboratorial activities. Courses are generally held in German.

University of Potsdam (Coordinator: Agostino Dovier)

First of all, where is POTSDAM? Potsdam is simply the “East side” of Berlin (the other side of the former wall), a lovely town surrounded by lakes and gardens and connected to Berlin by the metro (you can reach the center of Berlin in 20 minutes to exploit the museums, concerts, and all amenities of Berlin). Several famous movies have been produced in Potsdam and you can visit the oldest film museum in Germany. As usual in Germany, everything is well-organized, including your staying there during the exchange.

As far as program of the exchange is concerned, you can exploit the courses offered by the M.Sc. Cognitive Systems at the University of Potsdam http://www.ling.uni-potsdam.de/cogsys/ In particular, in Potsdam  here is a group at the top international levels for Knowledge Representation and Reasoning.
The fastest solver for Answer Set Programming (clingo) is implemented and maintained by the group of prof Torsten Schaub (who is also the local exchange coordinator). We suggest to choose the courses in Advanced Problem Solving Techniques (and the current topics in computational intelligence) where classes are given by researcher of this group. Of course other courses (e.g., Machine Learning, Computational Linguistic) are also offered at the top international standards and can be chosen.

Universidad de Murcia (Coordinator: Angelo Montanari)

Since various years, there exists a successful Erasmus exchange program with the University of Murcia. Murcia offers all basics courses in computer science plus a number of specialised courses in the areas of artificial intelligence, computer engineering, software engineering, information systems, and information technology.  Moreover, besides the courses offered by the Faculty of Computer Science, students can also attend courses given at the Faculty of Communication and Documentation.

Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Coordinator: Angelo Montanari)

The Universidad Complutense de Madrid is one of the most important universities in Spain.  It offers various high-profile curricula in computer science, ranging from computer engineering to software engineering, as well as interdisciplinary study programs in computer science and mathematics, and computer science and economics. There is also a curriculum focused on videogame development.

Dortmund Universitaet (Coordinator: Angelo Montanari)

The University of Dortmund is located in one of the most advanced industrial area of Germany.  The Department of Computer Science is one of the oldest and the largest computer science departments in Germany. A lot of students from different foreign countries choose every year to study computer science in Dortmund. The study program covers a broad spectrum of scientific fields and its quality is
widely recognized in Germany and abroad.

Jozef Stefan International Postgraduate School – Ljubljana (Coordinator: Angelo Montanari)
The Jozef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana is an advanced international postgraduate school. It is internationally well known for its research in the areas of artificial intelligence and information technology. Many of its members collaborate with the master program of the Faculty of Computer and Information Science of the University of Ljubljana, one of the leading faculties of computer science in
Eastern and South Eastern Europe (see University of Ljubljana).

University of Gothenburg (Coordinator: Marino Miculan)

It is a rich and stimulating environment, with many international students thanks to their efficient Erasmus exchange service. The courses offered to international students cover all the topics of computer science, from the most theoretical to the most applicative, also thanks to the close collaboration with the Chalmers University of Technology. Many courses include projects to be developed in groups, as the Swedish teaching method tends to encourage collaborative work.
