COMPUTER ENGINEERING IN PISA

Computer Engineering is a rapidly growing field which provides broad job opportunities. Multiple educational courses can be envisaged at different levels: in Pisa, it's possible to pursue a Bachelor of Science, a Master of Science in Computer Engineering, a Master of Science in Embedded Computing Systems, and a PhD course in Information Engineering. Each of these courses takes into account demands both from the industrial world and from the modern society, combining a solid scientific background with cutting-edge technological skills, tradition with innovation, quality with sustainability.

A Computer Engineer is considered an engineer in the first place, and so students will be exposed to methodological courses aimed at developing the skills to deal with and tackle engineering problems. Moreover, special attention is paid to neighboring subjects like Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Telecommunications, Robotics, and Management/Economics Engineering.

The BSc graduate who decide to face the job marketplace holds the cultural grounding, the scientific knowledge, and the technical skills to easily fit into ICT work environments. He/she will be able to master the upcoming innovative technologies in the computing area as well as in other related fields. The BSc graduate interested in pushing further his education can access either the MSc course in Computer Engineering or the MSc course in Embedded Computing Systems; the latter is provided as a partnership between the University of Pisa and Scuola Superiore di Studi Universitari e Perfezionamento Sant’Anna.

After the MCs degree, it is possible to participate in the competition for getting access to a limited number of PhD positions in Information Engineering. Such a programme is specifically research-oriented and spans a three-year period. PhD candidates are required to attend and pass advanced courses, and move their first steps in the research community joining specific research groups in our department.
