All programmes are defined by a high level of specialization, opening to international careers, both in the business world and in academia. Learning is practice-oriented, with many tangible projects to be developed with the critical use of the theoretical foundations studied and the latest technologies available, in collaboration with companies and other actors in the industry, or in the context of fundamental research carried out by the Faculty. The favorable teacher-to-student ratio allows to interact directly and openly with professors considered among the top experts of their respective fields, broadening horizons and allowing to approach training in a personalized way. All this in the context of a cosmopolitan and lively Faculty, driven by a deep, authentic passion for informatics, where the desire to do and to amaze can grow and develop.
