Italy – Master Scholarships in Computer Science
Since 2010, Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia (Italy) has offered a two-year MSc program in “Informatics – Computer Science”, taught in English, which is suitable for students with diverse academic backgrounds. The program unfolds into three semesters of full-time lectures and labs. During the last semester students work on an individual project and dissertation.
The program covers the theory and practice of a wide spectrum of fields in Computer Science and Information Technology, and allows students to pursue a minor in Statistics.
Three suggested sub-programs, resulting from selecting a specific group of elective courses, are the following:
- Information Sciences and Intelligent Systems sub-program;
- Software Dependability and IT Security sub-program;
- Information Systems and Statistical Analysis.
Candidates who hold a foreign degree, equivalent to a tree-year Bachelor degree or higher in Computer Science or related subject (Computer/Electronic Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, etc.), and are proficient in English, can apply.
Candidates can ask for a pre-evaluation of their qualification and school career (www.unive.it/evaluation) before starting the official enrollment procedure (the on-line pre-evaluation procedure is open from Jan 15th to May 15th, 2012).
Only students who complete successfully the pre-evaluation procedure by May 15th, 2012 can be awarded with the university international scholarships.
This pre-evaluation procedure is particularly important for non-EU citizens residing abroad, who have to apply as early as possible (we suggest long before the deadline of May 15th, 2012). These students, once received the acceptance letter, have to submit a further pre-enrolment application to an Italian Diplomatic Delegation in order to transmit us all the original documents, and to start as soon a possible a pretty long process to obtain an Italian Student Visa.
