I chose to enrol in this course because it offers me the possibility of attending a 2nd degree course from a public university, such as UNIPA, at the same time adjusting my necessities of daily life. Indeed, it is the structure of the course that fits in my schedule and not the opposite. This allows me to continue to work and I have not to move to be present, unless to take the final exams.

The organization of the course and the availability of the instructors make the difference as well as the overall extra learning activities and the materials uploaded on the platform.

The programme prepares to the professions of system and software analyst, system and software designer, data and information scientist.

The Master is involved in international student and staff exchanges, including an agreement with University Gustave Eiffel in Paris, that makes it possible for selected students to obtain a double degree, from Italy and France.
