This Master degree program is a joint initiative of University of Pisa - Department of Computer Science and Department of Information Engineering, and Sant´Anna School of Advanced Studies - Institute of Communication, Information and Perception Technologies.
The two-year Master Program in Computer Science and Networking has been designed to meet the growing demand for an emerging kind of professionals with expertise in both the information and the networking technologies.
This expertise is needed in the design and implementation of both innovative software-hardware distributed infrastructures and service-based distributed applications in several areas of industry, e-business, research, social and citizen services, public administration
Courses and laboratories
The two-year Master degree programme in Computer Science and Networking has a total number of credits (CFU) of 120, where a credit corresponds to 8 hours of lectures/laboratory and 17 hours of personal working activity. The program is organized in around 12 teaching courses (6 or 9 or 12 credits per teaching course), of which 9 major and 3 minor teaching courses, plus the Master Thesis (15 credits).
Algorithm Engineering, Advanced Programming, Distributed Systems Paradigms and Models, Fundamentals of Signals, Systems and Networks, High Performance Computing, Network Configuration and Management, Software Service Engineering, Teletraffic Engineering,
- software technologies for platforms, systems, models, frameworks, tools, security, and applications in distributed contexts,
- communication technologies for optical and photonic infrastructures, and for network architectures, models, protocols and services,
- applied mathematics for architectures and applications modeling.
The organization of teaching courses and laboratories will allow each student to achieve the most suitable and effective working environment. In order to achieve the described goals for high qualification and working environment, the maximum number of admitted students per year is 42.
