Programme overview


STRATEGOS, the International Master Program in Engineering Technology for Strategy and Security (MSC in Engineering/Laurea Magistrale), prepares young Engineers able to develop Models,  Algorithms & Simulators, analyze Big Data, apply AI (Artificial Intelligence), IA (Intelligent Agents) & Machine Learning techniques to support the Strategic Decision Making Process. STRATEGOS combines advances in Engineering with Modelling Techniques, Social and Economic Strategies for solving real challenges

Learning by doing

STRATEGOS proposes an innovative approach & educational objectives based on Classes, Labs, Computer Simulations, Role Play Games, Virtual and Live Experiences to create skills in using Advanced Techniques on Modeling, Simulation, Data Science, AI/IA to Industry, Business, Defense, Int.Affairs, etc. STRATEGOS deals with Complex Systems and prepares students to master HiTech and enabling ICT Technologies. STRATEGOS starts in September 2019-2020; please contact for more info

Career perspectives

The Strategy Engineering skills are crucial for Top Management, Stategic Planning and Management in major Corporations. The Strategic Engineers work also on the development of Smart Solutions to create new services and products in Complex Systems for Business, Industry, Consulting, International Agencies and Defence. Several major Companies already signed to evalaute STRATEGOS Students in Internships, and also small Hi-Tech Enterprise are engaged with us to offer many job opportunities.

STRATEGOS, the International Master Program in Engineering Technology for Strategy and Security (MSC in Engineering/Laurea Magistrale), is the new initiative on Strategic Engineering of Genoa University, established 1471 AD and ranked 1st in Italy within Engineering Area by major ranking system. STRATEGOS promotes quantitative modeling to support decisions by developing a new generation of Engineers able to deal with Strategic Thinking and to support Decision Makers by mastering advance modeling, simulation as well as other enabling technological and scientific areas.

The operational lifecycle of innovative systems are usually quite long and rich of uncertainties and strongly affected by many variables as well as by future scenarios, so a proper approach in modeling and analyzing quantitatively these elements is fundamental for the final success.

Understanding these issues is really fundamental and it is necessary to prepare engineers and scientists able to create models for supporting Decision Makers. Despite this importance, up to now, these strategic aspects are frequently roughly addressed by traditional approaches and educational practices: often just qualitative approaches or simplified static analysis methodologies are proposed.

STRATEGOS relies on foundations on ICT and M&S education, Strategic Modeling, Decision Support, Scenario Analysis and Economy, providing the deep scientific and business knowledge as well as the technical engineering skills needed in this sector.
