The Master of Science in Computer Science consists of 120 ECTS. It includes courses on the fundamentals of computer science (networking, semantics of programming languages, formal languages and automation, etc.) as well as courses on the selected area of specialization.
Students can complete their studies with “free choice” courses covering advanced topics in different areas of specialization. Practical training periods in industrial or research laboratories allow the student to apply the gained knowledge and assimilate various aspects linked to professional practice.
This program offers three different study paths focused on the following research field: Data Science, Service Design and Engineering, Systems and Networks.
The program starts every year in September. The academic year is divided into two semesters: autumn semester (from September to January) and spring semester (from February to June). The periods between semesters are dedicated to examinations and holidays. For the academic calendar: https://www.disi.unitn.it/master-student/academic-calendar

Notes: according to the Sorbonne (1988) and the Bologna (1999) declarations university-level study programmes in the European Higher Education Area are structured in university credits (ECTS). A university credit corresponds to 25 hours of student workload, time for personal preparation included. The annual average of workload for a full-time student is conventionally fixed at 60 credits.
