Course Brief

In today’s contemporary lifestyles and various professional contexts, the integration of information technologies highlights the pressing need for highly qualified educational programs catering to the demand for effective and innovative IT solutions. The master’s in computer science addresses this imperative, serving as a vital platform for vocational training in diverse areas: crafting information systems architecture, managing business databases, implementing software development protocols, and establishing robust security and reliability measures for systems and the web.

This master’s empowers students to conceive, develop, manage, and sustain business information systems, with a focused emphasis on the physical structure of information networks. Additionally, it furnishes foundational knowledge in software development, business database management, web applications, and mobile technology.

Awarded by Università degli Studi Guglielmo Marconi, also recognized as Guglielmo Marconi University, this degree holds international acclaim. It stands as the first Italian Open University officially sanctioned by the Italian Ministry of Education. The university’s recognition underlines its compliance with Italian laws and the education system.

The degree program encompasses five compulsory modules: database, software engineering, computer networks, security, culminating in a final thesis exam. Successful program completion requires a total of 60 credits.

In the Computer Networks module, students will understand network infrastructure, reference models, and mobile/wireless systems. The Database module covers database creation, management, information retrieval, automation, analysis of distributed databases, and data encoding. In Software Engineering, students learn process modeling, project management, modularity, local web server programming, and self-learning systems. The Security module imparts skills in system security, cryptography, authentication, web security, access control, and block cipher algorithms. Graduates will be equipped to comprehend network structures, manage databases, develop software, and enhance security measures, positioning them for roles where ensuring system reliability and cybersecurity are crucial.

After successfully completing the 4 modules, learners will do the fifth module, Final Thesis. This Project Work is an active experimentation by the student of the learned contents throughout the training course and aims to provide the possibility of being able to apply, through a business case, the concepts learned during the Master. It also represents an opportunity to check the status of the own analytical, organizational, decision-making, relational and operational skills.
