The scientific area of Computer Science and Engineering at DEIB has experienced significant growth over the past few years, and today totals up 74 professors and about 30 PhD students per year. This area offers undergraduate and graduate courses in Computer Science and Engineering for the School of Industrial and Information Engeneering and manages the Bachelor, Master, and PhD programmes in Computer Science and Engineering (“Ingegneria Informatica”) of the Politecnico di Milano. A wide range of research topics are pursued, distributed over five strong research lines: Advanced Software Architectures and Methodologies; Artificial Intelligence and Robotics; Data, Web, and Society; Information Systems; and System Architectures.
Their main objective is fundamental research work in computer science and engineering. System and software reconfigurability, self-adaptivity, autonomy and pervasiveness, service computing, information and knowledge management and discovery, human-machine interaction, and advanced computing architectures are the basic themes addressed by the area and constitute the ground for the development of future ICT (Information and Communication Technology) systems. Moreover, our vision pursues the strategic aim to conceive, favor, and support a new wave of penetration of computer science and engineering in society, by performing application-oriented research enabling the interdisciplinary development of innovative services and products. Indeed, future ICT systems will be strongly integrated with other engineering systems such as energy management systems, intelligent transportation systems, smart cities and buildings, and others, and will have strong requirements in terms of connectivity, coordination, security, adaptability and flexibility. These goals can be achieved only through a strong interaction with the other ICT disciplines and with the various application areas. This is why there are so many collaborations with the other areas of the Department, the other Departments inside Politecnico di Milano and the outside world.
