The developments of Computer Science and of the Information Society in the last few years have had a deep social and economic impact. Computer Science has become a dominant factor in culture and in the organization of modern enterprises and social activities, fostering their transformation and innovation.
In this scenario, deeply influenced by the birth of new technologies, the Master in Computer Science and Engineering aims to train engineers that have a wide and deep cultural background, are able to develop and use methods and tools of computer science with an engineering approach, as well as deal with and develop a large spectrum of applications.
The professional roles that the Master in Computer Science and Engineering can provide are amongst the most requested, yet scarcely available.


The degree requires acquisition of 120 credits (CFU); specifically, students must select at least 45 CFU from computer science and engineering courses, 25 CFU from complementary subjects, and at most 20 CFU can be freely selected by the student.
20 credits are devoted to the preparation of the Master Thesis and of the final examination, one of which is reserved for improving the knowledge of the English language.

There are two pre-approved study plans. Thanks to the wide range of courses offered, the T2A-Computer Science and Engineering track covers all the main application areas of modern computer engineering. The T2M - MUSICAL ACOUSTICS track is, on the other hand, specifically aimed at forming experts in Sound Engineering and, in particular, Musical Acoustics.

The T2A track is entirely offered at Campus Leonardo in Milano, while the T2M track has a first year offered at the Campus Leonardo, which includes the mandatory courses of computer engineering, plus courses on computer music, as well as audio and acoustic signal processing. The second year, offered at the Cremona Campus of the Politecnico di Milano, focuses on vibro-acoustics, musical acoustics, and room acoustics.

The student can propose an autonomous study plan of 20 credits for the II year. The autonomous plans will be accepted or rejected based on their consistency with the overall teaching offer, considering the entire path proposed by the student for both years.
