Type D and Type F activities

The educational activities of type D are chosen by the student, those of type F are further knowledge useful for entering the world of work (internships, soft skills, project works, etc.). According to the Didactic Regulations of the Course, some activities can be chosen and included autonomously in the booklet, others must be approved by a special committee to verify their consistency with the study plan. Type D or F educational activities can be covered by the following activities.

1. Teachings taught at the University of Verona.

Include the teachings listed below and/or in the Course Catalogue (which can also be filtered by language of delivery via Advanced Search).

Booklet entry mode: if the teaching is included among those listed below, the student can include it autonomously during the period in which the study plan is open; otherwise, the student must submit a request to the Secretariat, sending the form to carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it during the period indicated.

2. CLA certificate or language equivalency.

In addition to those required by the curriculum, the following are recognized for those matriculated from A.Y. 2021/2022:

  • English language: 3 CFUs are recognized for each level of proficiency above the one required by the course of study (if not already recognized in the previous course of study).
  • Other languages and Italian for foreigners: 3 cfu are recognized for each proficiency level starting from A2 (if not already recognized in the previous study cycle).

These cfu will be recognized, up to a maximum of 6 cfu in total, as type F if the teaching plan allows, or as type D. Additional elective credits for language knowledge may be recognized only if consistent with the student's educational project and if adequately justified.

Those enrolled until A.Y. 2020/2021 should consult the information found here.

Booklet entry mode: request the certificate or equivalency to the CLA and send it to the Student Secretariat - Careers for career entry of the exam, via email: carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it

3. Soft skills

Discover the training paths promoted by the University's TALC - Teaching and learning center, intended for students regularly enrolled in the academic year of course delivery https://talc.univr.it/it/competenze-trasversali

Booklet entry mode: the teaching is not expected to be included in the curriculum. Only after obtaining the Open Badge, the CFUs in the booklet will be automatically validated. The registration of CFUs in career is not instantaneous, but there will be some technical time to wait.  

4. CONTAMINATION LAB 

The Contamination Lab Verona (CLab Verona) is an experiential course with modules on innovation and enterprise culture that offers the opportunity to work in teams with students from all areas to solve challenges set by companies and organisations.  

Upon completion of a CLab, students will be entitled to receive 6 CFU (D- or F-type credits).  

Find out more:  https://www.univr.it/clabverona 

PLEASE NOTE: In order to be admitted to any teaching activities, including those of your choice, you must be enrolled in the academic year in which the activities in question are offered. Students who are about to graduate in the December and April sessions are therefore advised NOT to undertake extracurricular activities in the new academic year in which they are not enrolled, as these graduation sessions are valid for students enrolled in the previous academic year. Therefore, students who undertake an activity in an academic year in which they are not enrolled will not be granted CFU credits.  

5. Stage/internship period

In addition to the CFUs required by the curriculum (check carefully what is indicated on the Didactic Regulations): here information on how to activate the internship. 

Check in the regulations which activities can be Type D and which can be Type F.

Final examination regulations

Upon completion of the Master’s degree dissertation, students are awarded 24 CFU, which equates to no more than 4-5 months of full-time work.

Goals
The primary goal of a dissertation is to develop an original study that may include an application project or a theoretical topic related to specific design issues, or a critical review of the most recent developments in a given field of study. During the preparation of the dissertation, under the guidance of the Supervisor and co-supervisors (if any), the student is expected to conduct an in- depth study of the chosen topic, while gaining the ability to summarise and creatively apply the knowledge acquired. The dissertation should focus on topics of engineering and computer science, or closely related areas of study. The work shall consist in the written presentation of activities that may be structured as follows:

  1. design and development of applications or systems;
  2. critical analysis of contributions from the scientific literature;
  3. original research contributions.

The dissertation shall be written in English and can be presented either in English or in Italian, also relying on multimedia tools such as presentations and videos.

Assessment methods and examination procedures
Each dissertation can be either internal or external, depending on whether it is carried out at the University of Verona or in collaboration with another institution. For each dissertation a Supervisor, one or more co-supervisors (optional) and an Examiner will be appointed. The Examiner is appointed by the Computer Science Teaching Committee at least 20 days before the presentation of the dissertation, once the student's eligibility to take the Master's degree examination has been verified. With regard to the legal aspects related to the dissertation and its scientific outcomes (e.g. intellectual property of research outcomes), please refer to the relevant legislation and the University Regulations.
Evaluation of the dissertation
The Supervisor, the co-supervisor/s (if any) and the Examiner will evaluate the dissertation based on the following criteria:

  1. level of in-depth analysis carried out, in relation to the most recent developments in the areas related to information technology, with a focus on medical and biological applications;
  2. scientific and/or technological outcomes of the dissertation;
  3. student’s critical thinking;
  4. student’s experimental and/or formal development;
  5. student’s ability to carry out independent work (this point will not be assessed by the Examiner);
  6. value of the methodologies used;
  7. accuracy in planning and writing the dissertation.

Graduation mark
The graduation mark (based on a 110-point scale) is a whole value between 66/110 and 110/110 and is calculated by adding together the following elements (then rounding the result to the nearest whole number, e.g. 93.50 => 94; 86.49 => 86):

  • 1) the average of the marks gained in the modules, weighted according to CFU, converted to a 110-point scale;
  • 2) evaluation of the dissertation and the oral presentation during the final examination, based on the following methods:
    • a) each of the points 1-7 listed above will be assigned a coefficient between 0 and 1 (fractional coefficient with one decimal place);
    • b) the quality of the presentation will be assessed by awarding a coefficient between 0 and 1 (fractional coefficient with one decimal place);
    • c) the sum of the points resulting from (a) and (b).

The Graduation Committee may award one extra point in the following cases: cum laude honours obtained in the exams taken during the degree programme; participation in internships officially recognised by the Computer Science Teaching Committee; taking extra modules; and the achievement of the degree in a time that is shorter than the normal duration of the degree programme. If the final score is 110/110, the Graduation Committee may award cum laude honours by unanimous decision.

External dissertations
An external dissertation is a work carried out in collaboration with an institution/body other than the University of Verona. In this case, the topic of the dissertation must be agreed in advance with a Supervisor from the University of Verona. In addition, the student must indicate at least one co- supervisor belonging to the external institution/body, who will support the student during the work on the dissertation. The Supervisor and the co- supervisors must be indicated in the online graduation application. The insurance aspects relating to the student's stay at the external institution are regulated by the regulations in force at the University of Verona. If the dissertation involves a period of training at the external institution/body, then it is necessary that the University of Verona enters into a specific agreement with such institution/body. The scientific outcomes of the dissertation will be available to all parties involved. In particular, the contents and results of the dissertation are to be considered public. For all matters not strictly scientific (e.g. agreements, insurance) the resolution of the Academic Senate of 12 January 1999 shall be taken as a reference.

Supervisor, co-supervisors, examiners
The dissertation presentation is introduced by the Supervisor. Professors belonging to the Department of Computer Science may be appointed as Supervisors, as well as any external lecturers who are deemed suitable by the Teaching Committee based on their area of study and level of expertise.
In addition to those who have the above requirements to be appointed as Supervisor, the following individuals may be appointed as co-supervisors: researchers working in external research institutes, research grant holders, post-doctoral fellowship holders, PhD students, technical staff of the Department, external experts appointed by an Italian University, corporate officers who have a remarkable experience in the field relevant to the topic of the dissertation. Examiners may be appointed among lecturers and researchers at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Verona, who are deemed to be experts in the specific field of the dissertation topic.

Graduation Committee
The Graduation Committee shall include five members, of which at least four are professors in the Master's degree programme in Computer Engineering for Robotics and Smart Industry. Based on the number of graduates, the Computer Science Teaching Committee will identify the most appropriate organisational methods for administering the examination, and it shall make available the calendar of tests at least one week before the examination itself. The procedures and deadlines for the submission of the graduation application are established by the Computer Science Teaching Committee and by the relevant offices.
