The scientific area of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at DEIB has experienced significant growth over the last few years, with a staff of 79 professors, about 50 PhD students per year, 2 secretaries, and 2 lab technicians.
This area offers undergraduate and graduate courses in Computer Science and Engineering for all the Schools and manages the Bachelor, Master, and PhD programs in Computer Science and Engineering (Ingegneria Informatica) of Politecnico di Milano.
A wide range of research topics are pursued. Strong research lines have been defined, whose main research aim is foundamental work in computer science and engineering. Reconfigurability, self-adaptivity, autonomy, pervasiveness, service computing, knowledge search 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 Information and Comunication Tecnology (ICT) 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 buildings, and others and will ask for connectivity, adaptability and coordination requirements, and flexibility in service quality. These goals can be attained only with a strong interaction with the other ICT disciplines and with the application areas; therefore many collaborations are in place with the other areas of the department and with other departments inside Politecnico di Milano.
