The specific training objectives of the Artificial Intelligence and Industrial Automation curriculum are as follows:

  • to train professionals in endowed with a high level of  knowledge of the state of the art of design and implementation of processes, environments, objects and services conceived for interactive computer-mediated communication. These professionals will be capable of designing and implementing online systems and services and managing the networking sector in the area of machine-mediated multimodal communication in environments featuring high levels of technological innovation and based principally on adoption of smart technologies, distributed applications, integrated (embedded) devices and pervasive computing 
  • to provide students with detailed theoretical and practical knowledge in the fields of smart technologies, sharing and use of information assets, entertainment (digital media, electronic and digital cinema, etc.), home automation (social robotics, pervasive computing, etc.), cultural heritage, and control systems (machine learning, embedded systems, etc.)
  • to train experts capable of undertaking professional careers and/or research in senior theoretical and practical design positions in the areas of machine-mediated communication (smart technologies, pervasive and/or ubiquitous computing, wearable computing, sensitive and reconfigurable spaces, customisable services, security, surveillance, etc.) and integrated communication (wireless or wired) within research institutes, public administration bodies, industry and economic organisations of various kinds.

Students who complete the international study programme within the Artificial Intelligence and Industrial Automation curriculum will be awarded the following double degree: Multimedia Communication and Information Technology Master Degree and Diplom-Ingenieur, thanks to the agreement in place with the Alpen-Adria University of Klagenfurt (Faculty of Technical Science) in Austria.
