University of Verona
Bachelor Degree in Bioinformatics
The Degree in Bioinformatics integrates knowledge of programming, algorithms, systems and architectures, and computer science fundamentals, with basic knowledge of chemistry, biochemistry and biology, such as cell biology. This combination provides the necessary training to work in a new cutting edge field at the forefront of computer science and biology which, for example, has made human genome sequencing possible. The programme provides the skills needed to work in applied computer science for medicine and biology, sectors which are increasingly using information technology for tasks such as accessing genomic databases and analysing data from biotechnology laboratories. The degree programme lays the foundation to address specific topics in advanced bioinformatics that will have a growing impact on medicine and natural sciences in the years to come, for example: modelling and simulation of biological processes, drug development and innovative treatments, and understanding biomolecular phenomena.
Final Mark: 98/110
Master Degree in Computer Science and Engineering
The Master degree in Computer Science and Engineering has been running at the University of Verona since the academic year 2009-2010. It aims to provide students with the methodological bases for addressing issues related to the design, analysis and development of complex computer systems.
Part of the programme is dedicated to deepening and expanding upon on fundamental knowledge acquired in the Bachelor degree (in Science or Engineering), providing students with a host of tools for looking at complex problems in the field. Another part of the programme provides state of the art knowledge in the main methods of modelling, design, analysis and evaluation of algorithms and systems (hardware and software) able to manipulate data from either discrete or continuous sources.
The postgraduate programme is enhanced by research carried out by the Department of Computer Science of the university.
Final Mark: 110 cum laude /110
