The course in brief

Presentation

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science provides knowledge and skills in computer science and technology. The subjects of the courses closely follow the rapid development of the field. 

The course is organised into a Propedeutic curriculum, for those who wish to continue their studies, and a Technological curriculum, for those who wish to enter the world of work immediately.

Learning by doing

The course combines traditional lessons with:

  • exercises and practical laboratory activities
  • project development
  • internships at companies in the sector

Professional outlets

Graduates can find immediate employment as junior experts in the various domains of Computer Science, either with companies or as freelancers, or they can continue with their master's studies.

UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

The design and delivery of the activities proposed by the Computer Science degree course take into account the following Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda:

  • Goal 4 - Quality education: provide quality, equitable and inclusive education and learning opportunities for all
  • Goal 5 - Gender Equality: achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
  • Objective 9 - Enterprise, Innovation and Infrastructure: Build resilient infrastructure and promote innovation and equitable, responsible and sustainable industrialisation
