Nowadays, Computer Science has applications in several fields, very different from each other and in constant increasing number. Graduate students in Computer Science need to specialise their base knowledge, competences and skills to more focussed application domains. This is what the Master of Science in Computer Science (Laurea Magistrale in Computer Science) offer, by proposing different specialisation curricula within the Master degree.
Active Curricula in 2023/2024
- Artificial Intelligence and Informatics for Robotics (AIIR) Curriculum
- Business Informatics and Data Science (BIDS) Curriculum
- Cybersecurity (CySec) Curriculum
- Methodologies and Technologies for Digital Communication (MTDT) Curriculum
- Software Development and Technologies (SDT) Curriculum
Being in collaboration with European and international institutions, the degree is completely taught in English language. Students at UNICAM are immersed in an international environment with foreign students coming from different countries. They can participate to international exchange programmes such as Erasmus+ or Double Degree to spend a semester or one year abroad for exams and/or thesis.
Double Degree programmes offer the possibility to gain, in addition to the UNICAM degree, a degree awarded by a partner university. Current partner universities are:
- Reykjavik University (RU) at Reykjavik, Iceland;
- University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) at Olten, Switzerland;
- Universidad Nacional de Catamarca (UNCa) at Catamarca, Argentina;
- University of Tirana, Albania.
Scholarships of merit for supporting the mobility are offered to:
- outgoing double degree students through UNICAM funds;
- outgoing Erasmus+ students through the Erasmus+ Programme.
The Master degree lasts two years and each year is divided into two semesters, from mid-September to the end of January, and from March to mid-June. The Winter Exam Session is in February and the Summer Exam Session is from mid-June to the end of July and in September. The five curricula that can be chosen within the Master of Science in Computer Science are described in the following.
CISCO activities, certified by the Cisco Networking Academy Program, are available as part of the degree program. This is an important opportunity for our students as Cisco Networking Academy Program is introductory for CISCO Industrial certifications, which are highly spendable in the job market.
Quality Assurance System
UNICAM Quality Management System Certificate ISO 9001:2015 (from AFAQ-France, a French leader and one of the first certification bodies at the global level) guarantees students the quality of services provided. The guarantee is via a rigorous analysis of internal organisational procedures and the prompt addressing of any weaknesses or shortcomings whether detected or reported by the students themselves. The Quality Management System includes the following support services for students: orientation and guidance, mentoring, International mobility, Internships and communication. These integrate with and support the educational activities, so as to contribute to the complete training of the student.
After the Degree
The Master of Science in Computer Science gives access to the Italian “Albo Professionale dell’ordine degli ingegneri” (National Engineer’s Professional Register), section A, sector “Information Engineering”. To enter the professional register it is necessary to pass a special examination (Esame di Stato), which can be taken at UNICAM or in another Italian registered university.
According to AlmaLaurea statistics, one year after the degree the employment rate of those who graduated in Computer Science at the University of Camerino is 87,5%. The percentage increase 100% five years after the degree.
The Master of Science in Computer Science gives access to the PhD in Computer Science offered by UNICAM or by another European or international institution.
