The specific training objectives of the Multimedia Systems and Interaction Design curriculum are as follows:

  • to train professionals with a high level of theoretical and practical expertise enabling them to design and develop high-quality, innovative multimedia systems for use in various areas of computer science, with particular reference to digital media (Web, mobile systems, social robotics, advanced HCI, 3D graphics, sound processing, digital cinema, etc.), networked information systems for production and services, and Web and multimedia services (e-business, e-commerce, e-government, e-health, e-learning, etc.);
  • to provide students with detailed knowledge of information technologies for information management and communication, with particular focus on methodologies and techniques for analysis, design, implementation, evaluation and management of multimedia, mobile and Web systems in their various fields of application;
  • to train highly specialised IT experts who have a detailed knowledge of methodologies and techniques for management, operation and organisation of IT projects, with particular regard to multimedia systems and their quality, but are also mindful of the social and economic implications inherent in the design of new technologies and IT platforms and the effects of their adoption by users.

The objectives of the Multimedia Systems and Interaction Design curriculum are therefore orientated towards equipping students with a high level of technical and scientific expertise in order to prepare graduates to enter the job market in IT specialist roles, with particular regard to the sector of digital media, multimedia systems, online services and mobile systems and to the design and development of applications based on advanced algorithms.
