Learning objectives

The aim of the final exam is to improve the student's autonomy of judgment, communication skills and ability to learn, all these in the context of a broad and in-depth study of a basic or applied topic in computer science or automation.


The admission to the final exam is allowed if the student has successfully passed, at least ten days before the date set for the exam, all the activities included in the official study plan for 99 credits at least.

Course unit content

The final exam with external internship for the achievement of the master's degree consists of a design or analysis activity in the field of computer engineering agreed with a supervisor (the “relatore”) and in collaboration with a company or institution where the student carries out this activity for at least 150 hours. The final exam must highlight the personal contribution of the student, witnessed by the preparation of a written report (the thesis) and by its discussion in front of the master's degree commission. In the final exam, the candidate must demonstrate mastery of the topics, ability to work independently and adequate communication skills. The thesis can be written in English with a large summary in Italian.
