Student orientation services

The new website of the Student Orientation Office, with new form and content, is the result of a long process aimed at providing a better and more comprehensive service to its many users. Users are mostly secondary school pupils approaching the University for the first time, and schools' University Orientation Services which organise activities to assist their pupils in post-school choices. Making a decision means choosing the best alternative to satisfy one's expectations, preferences and aspirations.

Course of study in brief

The Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics offers a study program, which is original at national level and unique in Northeast Italy. After having provided a solid basic preparation in the various mathematical disciplines (algebra, mathematical analysis, geometry, computational mathematics and probability), the course also explores applied areas of mathematics in the two possible curricula: economic-financial and modeling-computational.
The lessons are enriched by numerous laboratory activities and by the possibility of attending company internships. Support actions are provided for students unable to attend classes in person (such as sharing of teaching materials, video lectures, etc.). Students also have the opportunity to carry out study experiences and internships abroad thanks to international mobility programs.
The course of study promotes the acquisition of transversal skills aimed at the most complete training of the student and usable for the subsequent path of job placement, recognizing an adequate number of university credits (ECTS) to those who follow with profit the courses specifically offered by the University or other institutions.
The course prepares graduates to attend Master's Degrees both in Italy and abroad in the fields of mathematics, informatics, statistics and economics. It also allows graduates to enter the working world in all high-tech and scientific production sectors or in the world of finance. For example, but not only, in financial institutions, insurance companies, research and development sectors of companies and industries.
The mathematical education, characterized by logical rigor, also allows the graduate to enter the job market in the computer science field by being able to quickly acquire the specific skills that are required.

Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS)
As part of the Quality Assurance system, complete, updated and easily available information on objectives, study plan, resources used and results achieved for each degree programme is made available through the SUA-CdS - Scheda Unica Annuale del Corso di Studio (Degree programme annual factsheet). This includes an Overview and three public sections (Learning Objectives, Student Experience, Learning Outcomes) which together provide a wide range of information about each degree programme. The SUA-CdS also contains an administrative section (Administration and Quality Management) that is for internal use only.

The Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS), which is currently available only in Italian, is a valuable tool that can be used by the University to design, implement and reorganise, as well as to evaluate, each degree programme. However, the SUA-CdS factsheet is also useful for students, to help them choose the right programme of study.

Il corso di laurea in Matematica Applicata di Verona è articolato in due curricula, il primo di tipo economico- finanziario ed il secondo di tipo modellistico-computazionale, che prevedono un percorso in gran parte comune per quanto riguarda i crediti nelle attività formative di base e caratterizzanti, che poi si biforca in un congruo numero di corsi nelle attività formative affini ed integrative.
La formazione sottolineerà in modo particolare gli aspetti metodologici.
Per quanto riguarda il percorso comune si richiederà che tutti gli studenti acquisiscano una buona conoscenza in matematica di base, algebra lineare, geometria di base, calcolo, algebra e strutture algebriche di base, fisica di base, programmazione.
Inoltre per l'ambito caratterizzante, in aggiunta all'ampliamento delle conoscenze teoriche, viene data per tutti grande enfasi alla formazione modellistico-applicativa con particolare riferimento alla probabilità e statistica, processi stocastici a stati discreti, sistemi dinamici e metodi numerici.
A seconda del curriculum prescelto, gli studenti avranno a disposizione una ampia rosa di corsi specificatamente dedicati alle applicazioni.
Ci si aspetta che tutti gli studenti, oltre ad acquisire capacità di analisi e di sintesi ed una solida preparazione di base nelle principali aree della matematica, diventino inoltre in grado di collaborare con esperti in vari settori, mettendo a disposizione professionalità e competenza per la soluzione di problemi in cui sia utile l'applicazione dei principali metodi classici, con soluzioni sia analitiche che numeriche.
Per tutti i corsi possono essere previsti sia moduli di teoria che di esercitazione e/o di laboratorio. I moduli di esercitazione (a cui corrisponde un rapporto ore/ CFU più alto di quelli di teoria) sono dedicati anche alla discussione di problemi proposti agli studenti come lavoro autonomo e di gruppo. I laboratori, che sono parte integrante dei corsi di tipo informatico, di tipo numerico e di quasi tutti i corsi di tipo modellistico - applicativo, sono essenzialmente dedicati agli aspetti computazionali o statistici.
La verifica avviene in forma tradizionale, ovvero tramite un elaborato scritto e/o un esame orale. Sono previste forme di tutorato, con particolare riferimento a carenze nella preparazione all'accesso.
Allo scopo di migliorare le capacità professionali, sono previsti stages e tirocinii, che si svolgeranno presso aziende o enti esterni all'università, sotto la supervisione di un responsabile accademico.
I corsi sono integrati da seminari di orientamento che, a livello divulgativo, affrontano argomenti anche avanzati riguardanti le molte applicazioni della matematica.

Quality Assurance

The quality of a degree programme is the extent to which it achieves its educational objectives and meets the quality requirements of the educational activities offered, which are determined in line with the needs and expectations of students and representatives of the world of work.

This programme has adopted a teaching Quality Assurance system in line with the University’s quality assurance guidelines and based on the e ANVUR national quality assurance guidelines, by carrying out the following activities:
  • periodic consultations with representatives of the world of work to assess the adequacy of the cultural and professional profiles offered in their courses;
  • design of educational contents and planning of resources;
  • organisation of educational activities and teaching services;
  • monitoring the effectiveness of teaching and planning measures to improve teaching and services;
  • provision of complete and up-to-date information on its website, relating to the programme (professional roles, expected learning outcomes, learning activities).
The above activities are scheduled and interrelated, based on the PDCA principles (Plan, Do, Check, Act).

In a Quality Assurance system, students play a fundamental role: each student can play their part by participating in the Quality Assurance groups of their degree programme and in the Faculty-Student Joint Committees or, more simply, by taking part in the Student Survey on teaching, or questionnaires. It’s in this context that specific workshops for student representatives (‘Laboratori di rappresentanza attiva’) are periodically made available to students by the University and the University’s Quality Assurance Board. To find out more, please see the relevant section.

Other useful things

Crediti Formativi Universitari (CFU/ECTS credits): Italian university courses are based on the CFU system. 1 CFU is equal to 25 hours of study. The average annual academic workload for a full-time student is generally assumed to be 60 CFU. CFU and ECTS credits serve the same purpose and generally have the same value.
Degree class: Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes that have the same learning objectives and activities are grouped into “degree classes". The educational content of each programme is set autonomously by each university; however, universities are required to include certain educational activities (and the corresponding number of CFU credits) set at the national level. These requirements are established in relation to each degree class. Degrees in the same class have the same legal value.
Double/Joint degrees: the Italian universities may establish degree programmes in partnership with other Italian or foreign universities. Upon completion of these courses, graduates are awarded a joint or double/multiple degree, one from each Partner University.
