MASTERʼS DEGREE IN
COMPUTER SCIENCE
INTERNATIONAL

The Computer ScienceInternational Inter-University Master Degree Programme aims to develop a training and academic exchange system, with a spirit of cooperation at European level, in collaboration with the Alpen-Adria University of Klagenfurt (Austria).

Its courses take advantage of the two universities’ expertise and provide students with advanced technical knowledge in particularly current computer science disciplines sought-after by the job market at national and international level, such as:

  • programming languages and advanced algorithms
  • cyber security
  • systems architecture
  • artificial intelligence systems
  • interactive systems

Why choose this degree programme?

Here are a few reasons:

  • you like the idea of an international study environment and are interested in the option of taking some courses abroad (in English)
  • you want to be a professional capable of original work in the areas of research and development, planning, design and project management as well as quality control, management, maintenance and verification of software
  • you want training to enable you both to enter the job market in a position of technical or managerial responsibility and to continue your studies through a PhD or second-level master degree (master di secondo livello) in Italy or abroad
  • you want to obtain a double degree.
 

Having successfully completed the study programme, you will gain the double degree qualification of Diplom-Ingenieur in Computer Science from the Alpen-Adria University of Klagenfurt and Master Degree in Computer Science from the University of Udine.

What happens after graduation?

This degree will give you the opportunity to find employment, at both national and international level, in extremely diverse areas such as industry, IT and computerised services, public administration, health, scientific research, environment and land, culture and cultural heritage, multimedia and, generally, all organisations that use complex computer systems.

An international Computer Science master degree will also enable you, subject to passing the relative selection process, to access the next levels of university study – such as our Computer Science PhD – in Italy or abroad.

By passing the State exam to practice the profession, you may also enrol on the Italian Register of Chartered Engineers, Section A – Information Engineering.

Another possible occupation is secondary school teaching, through completion of the training process in accordance with the provisions of current legislation, bearing in mind that recent approval of the decree implementing Law no. 107 of 13 July 2015, concerning “the system of initial training and access to teaching positions at lower and upper secondary schools”, introduced a new recruitment model. Specifically, “all graduates may participate in selection processes provided that they have 24 academic credits in psychological, anthropological or pedagogical training areas or teaching methodologies”. The University of Udine offers courses specifically designed to enable students to meet these requirements.

The unemployment rate for Computer Science master degree graduates is zero a few weeks after graduation, as demonstrated by the AlmaLaurea survey as well as the continual enquiries received by the Programme’s coordinators from companies in the local area, Austria and beyond.
