The aim of the Engineering in Computer Science program of the Sapienza University of Rome is to train Computer Engineers with specific expertise both in the sector of Computer Science, focussing on software applications such as software design, data management and analysis and software application to A.I., and in the sectors of information processing systems and security.


Degree Program

The Engineering in Computer Science program of the Sapienza University of Rome specifically prepares students for the following jobs:

  • Analyst and software design Engineers; these professionals develop, create, modify and optimize software applications based on the needs of final users; they analyse problems of data processing for different computing needs and develop, identify and optimize information processing systems. Software engineers also deal with the planning, creation, integration and verification of software employed in a website or a web application.
  • Engineers for the planning and management of systems and networks; these professionals identify and optimize ad hoc information management systems, they plan, coordinate and implement security measures for information systems in order to regulate data access and prevent unauthorized data access; they analyse, plan, test and optimize the performance of network and telecommunication systems.

The curriculum of the Master of Science in Engineering in Computer Science was developed based on the assumption that students have preliminarily acquired knowledge of basic scientific skills and of engineering disciplines and it includes a set of disciplines that are essential for the training of graduates from the Master of Science in Engineering in Computer Science. Thus, the curriculum is organized in several courses which will lead students to acquire the fundamental competencies for their future career and specific knowledge in one of the key sectors of Computer Engineering. In order to provide ad hoc experience in the field of problem solving, system planning and software creation for information processing applications, the curriculum requires the preparation of a dissertation that implies the awarding of 30 credits.
