Head of programme

Michele Aicardi
Computer engineering is the merge of two of the most professionally important words of the present and future: engineering, with its interdisciplinary characteristics, ability to approach and solve even the most complex problems and computer science, the most pervasive, disruptive and innovative discipline of our time. The master computer engineer has the tools to be able to operate in any technological sector.

Success stories

Clarissa Molfino
Mi sono laureata in Ingegneria informatica il 24 luglio 2015. Ricordo bene quel giorno, un giorno che da un lato ha messo fine a un percorso di studi molto intenso e appassionante, ma allo stesso tempo ha aperto le porte a una nuova vita, impegnativa, emozionante e pazzesca.

Clarissa Molfino

Subito dopo il conseguimento della laurea magistrale sono entrata in Microsoft. Sicuramente nella prima fase il mio background fortemente tecnico è stato fondamentale, dovendo lavorare con sviluppatori e startup. Era però solo l'inizio: da lì ho avuto la grande possibilità di imparare e sperimentare, ricoprendo diversi ruoli relativi soprattutto allo sviluppo del business e allontanandomi un po' dall'ambito strettamente tecnologico. Le soft skills e la capacità di affrontare le sfide con grinta e serenità, sviluppate durante gli studi all'università, mi hanno permesso di crescere molto, accogliendo con il sorriso ogni cambiamento e vivendo quotidianamente il sogno che quel 24 luglio mi faceva brillare gli occhi.

After receiving my M.Eng. in Computer Engineering from the University of Genova I decided to pursue a Ph.D. in Mathematical Engineering and Simulation from the same university.

SAP Security Research

During my time as Ph.D. student at the AI-Lab (now CSecLab) I was given the great opportunity to work in the context of a European project, to attend international conferences, and to closely collaborate with an industrial partner, SAP SE, the world's leading provider of business software solutions. As a result of this successful collaboration I joined SAP Security Research in Sophia Antipolis (France) where I am now a senior researcher working on innovative security solutions.

The MSc in Computer Engineering at the University of Genoa gave the right start to my career. It began developing my background theoretical knowledge at a competitive level both in Complex Systems and Computer Science field.

R&D engineer presso Groupe Renault

It then internationally enriched me with the double degree program EMECIS (collaboration with Sorbonne University). It, finally, introduced me to the world of autonomous vehicles with an internship at the Heudiasyc Laboratory. Currently, I am working as a R&D engineer at Groupe Renault while pursuing my Ph.D. and studying perception sensors for autonomous navigation. I thank the University of Genoa for all these opportunities and its guidance in the definition of the path of my future.
