Bachelor Degree in Computer Engineering

The Bachelor Degree (B.D.) in Computer Engineering prepares the graduates for developing and using technologies, as well as being able to design, produce and manage data elaboration systems in a wide range of applications. The adopted teaching model ensures that the student is assisted in his/her studies with the access to specifically developed supporting material and a list of individual and  group teaching activities guided by the teacher or tutor.

Overview

The Bachelor Degree is a 3-year program taught in both Italian and English and offered in an online modality, combining the following multimedia learning tools:

  • Audio-video lessons (accessible through the web platform in an asynchronous way)
  • Text materials (accessible through the web platform);
  • Self-Assessments: true/false questions, multiple choice, hot-spot image, chart test, role playing, simulations (accessible through the web platform);
  • Written assignments requiring the accomplishment of specific tasks in which students show their Mastery of methodologies, tools and critical autonomy.

The final exam of the degree program, intended to assess the technical-scientific and professional preparation of the student, consists of the completion and discussion of a written dissertation.

In order to be admitted to the B.D. in Computer Engineering, applicants must possess a valid high school diploma.

Duration:
3 years

Credits:
180 ECTS (European Credits Transfer and Accumulation System)
135 Quarter Credits

Learning Objectives
