The Department of Computer Science (DI) of University of Salerno is a key player in the regional, national and international landscape. It has a prestigious tradition both in teaching and research, being one of the first departments established in Italy to offer a degree in Computer Science (since 1971). About 40 professors and researchers work in the Department. They all contribute to a certified didactic offer and a respected scientific production. The research output of the Department of Computer Science has been evaluated by the independent agency ANVUR as the best in Italy in the period 2004-2010.
The Department of Computer Science currently offers:
- a Bachelor degree in Computer Science (1st cycle, 3 years, 180 ECTSs).
- a Master of Science degree in Computer Science (2nd cycle, 2 years, 120 ECTSs), with 4 specializations (Computational Intelligence, Cloud Computing, Cybersecurity, Information Systems and Software Technologies).
- a PhD program in Informatics and Computer Engineering.
The quality of the offer is certified by GRIN and AICA. The education standards comply with the regulations and directives suggested by the best international associations (ACM and IEEE). The satisfaction of our students is quite high, as proven by the surveys made by Italian consortium Almalaurea for Bachelor and Master of Science degree. Several opportunities expect the students of the DI: job meetings, traineeships, international mobility, and more. The students have several resources at their disposal:
- didactic and specialized laboratories
- an e-learning platform, for news, notes and interactions between students and professors
- traditional and innovative teaching methods, to guarantee an engaging learning experience and obtain a more efficient acquisition of skills and competences.
The Bachelor degree in Computer Science aims at the formation of professionals with a solid background in the informatics disciplines, augmented by several curricular activities. Our graduated students have a preparation that allows them to enter the job market with relative ease. Alternatively, they can continue their studies by choosing one out of four curricula of our Master of Science degree.
Our department is internationally regarded for his multiform research activity. The interests of the DI touch many topics, including but not limited to: Coding Theory, Cybersecurity, Biometric Systems, Computer Music, Computer Networks, Data Mining, Human Computer Interaction, Mobile Systems, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Software Engineering, and Virtual/Augmented Reality. Several collaborations are ongoing between the DI and other universities and companies, nationally and internationally.
