The Course is offered in an inter-university international collaboration with the Alpen-Adria University of Klagenfurt (UniAAK-Austria), where some courses will be held. It allows students to obtain a double degree. The classes are offered in English and possibly on-line in both the institutions.
As far as Artificial Intelligence is concerned, the main focus is on the study of languages and techniques for Knowledge Representation and Reasoning and their application for the formalization and solution of problems in constrained spaces. The relationships between computational complexity and language expressivity will be investigated. Students will acquire theoretical foundations and advanced techniques and languages for Machine Learning and Deep Learning. Several application scenarios will be presented, with particular emphasis toward Cybersecurity. Aspects of Ethics in AI will be studied.
As far as Cybersecurity is concerned, students will learn the theoretical foundations of public and private cryptography, as well as formal methods and languages for (semi) automatic verification of communication protocols. Several techniques related to cyber attacks will be investigated, such as methods for alerting and preventing attacks, in particular those based on machine learning techniques.
Aspects related to privacy and data management will be presented.
The course is organized as follows. In the first year students attend (on campus) the mandatory courses offered by the university of Udine and one mandatory course offered (on-line) by UniAAK. Students choose other optional exams (e.g., in the areas of distributed systems, advanced databases, computer network security, quantum computing, formal methods, advanced algorithms, recommended systems, information retrieval, virtual and augmented reality). In the first semester of the second year students move to UniAAK in order to attend (on campus) some advanced courses in the area of Artificial Intelligence and of Cybersecurity. At the end of the program the students spend a period of internship (in a factory or in one of the two universities) and prepare a thesis supervised by professors of both the universities.

FAQs

First, it is compulsory to apply online for admission requirements’ evaluation procedure; Second, in case of a positive evaluation, it is possible to finalize the enrolment online and become a full-time enrolled student of UNIUD. For more info go directly to https://www.uniud.it/prospectivestudents or write an e-mail to [email protected]
No. In the first year, lessons at UniUD must be attended in person, while attendance at UniAAK courses takes place online. In the second year students shall attend UniAAK on campus. In some cases you might attend on-line some courses of the university different from where you are physically in that semester.
Classes start in the end of September. Students must to be in Udine at the beginning of the program to attend on campus.
This is the default route. For supporting a semester in UniAAK, UniUD offers several Erasmus Grants. However, for specific cases (eg part-time/working student) different solutions (eg on-line classes for some courses) might be implemented.
Minimum 30 and maximum 60 ECTS (included the 12 ECTS of the mandatory course “Foundations of Cybersecurity and Ethics” that is attended on line from Italy).
