Admission requirements

Admission

To apply to the Laurea Magistrale in Informatica, a Bachelor degree lasting for three years or longer is required; such degree must contain a minimum collection of courses related to programming, algorithms, data management, system architectures (hardware, operating systems, networks), mathematical notions related to calculus, discrete mathematic, probability and statistics. More in-depth notions related to architecutes, operating systems, algorithms, networks, language theory, web must be required depending on the selected specialization.

Admission requirements

In this section, the guidelines used to evaluate whether the bachelor degree satisfy these minimum requirements are discussed:

  • Laurea in Informatica (class “26 – Scienze e Tecnologie Informatiche”) and Laurea in Informatica (class “L-31 – Scienze e Tecnologie Informatiche”), issued by the University of Trento. Students with such degrees are automatically admitted to the Laurea Magistrale in Informatica. Students who have selected the professional specialization in their Bachelor degree are required to present a personalized study plan;
  • “Lauree passanti”: Italian degrees belonging to the classes “L-31 – Scienze e Tecnologie Informatiche”, “26 – Scienze e Tecnologie Informatiche”, “L-8 – Ingegneria dell'Informazione”, “9 – Ingegneria dell'Informazione” whose syllabus satisfies specific requirements. Each year, the Consiglio d'Area Didattica in Informatica publishes a list of “lauree passanti”. The evaluation of which degrees belong to this list can be based on the correspondence between such degrees and syllabi defined at the national level. Students with such degrees are automatically admitted to the Laurea Magistrale in Informatica, but are required to present a personalized study plan;
  • Bachelor degrees issued from the University of Trento “similar” to the Bachelor in Computer Science, which individual study plan contain a reasonable amount of credits in the the computer science area (sector INF/01 and ING-INF/05), previously agreed between the Consiglio d'Area Didattica that issues the Bachelor degree and the Consiglio D'Area Didattica in Informatica. Each year, the Consiglio d'Area Didattica in Informatica publishes a list of “similar” Bachelor degrees. Students with such degrees are automatically admitted to the Laurea Magistrale in Informatica, but are required to present a personalized study plan;
  • In all the other cases, a formal application request is required, including the following information:
  1. a detailed study plan of the Bachelor degree, including title and syllabus of all the courses;
  2. a document issued from the University that issued the Bachelor degree reporting, in Italian or English, the list of courses, the score obtained in each of them and the final score associated to the degree;
  3. work and professional experiences;
  4. level of knowledge of
