Although we do not always notice it, software and data have become ubiquitous in our daily lives. For example, we use Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp to communicate with friends; we let global positioning systems (GPS) guide us on our car journeys, and we trust life-critical air traffic control systems to take us safely to our destination. The Computer Science programme is delivered by Free University of Bozen-Bolzano.

Just to give you an idea of the scale of this, here's some figures: in 2012, 2.5 Exabytes (that is 2.5 billion Gigabytes) of data was generated every single day and a system such as MacOS X contains more than 80 million lines of code.

That is why there’s the need to develop intelligent software and systems to store, retrieve, manage and make sense of these data. Designing, engineering and updating software requires sophisticated tools and methods that you will learn to apply in this two-year study programme.

Career opportunities

Our graduates are working in areas that require competences in the analysis, formalization and design of software systems for the solution of complex problems in various application areas, such as industry, services, environment, health, heritage and public administration. The development and maintenance of high quality information systems and computer networks often are part of their job. They also carry out research in industrial, public and academic laboratories.

Well prepared and ready for the job market. On the website of Alma Laurea you can check statistical data about graduates’ satisfaction and their employability.
