Since 1982, when it was established, our PhD in Computer Science aims to train researchers and innovators in Information Science and Technology, so our PhD students are involved since the beginning in research activities of our Faculties and research groups, they are invited to attend monographic courses and international PhD schools, as well as to spend study and research periods in academic and industrial research centers in Italy and abroad. Our PhD offers strong relationships for research projects, internships and job placements with prestigious ICT companies worldwide in the area of Big Data and Web, Cyber-security, Data Compression, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, Smart Communities and Social Networks, FinTech and Industry 4.0, BioInformatics and Smart Health, etc. Special attention is in offering opportunities to internships in startups and innovative companies with an international visibility.
At the end of the PhD, our students will be able to contribute to the definition of new models and theories for computation and information processing; foundations, algorithms and SW/HW platforms for the organization, storage and analysis of (Big) data; new languages and tools to support emerging programming paradigms, such as the ones required or designed in the area of Artificial Intelligence, Cloud and Fog computing, Internet of Things, Cyber Security, Networking, Programming paradigms and methodologies, etc..
