Learning outcomes

The course is divided into the following two modules

[Law module]
The Law module aims to provide students with the fundamental legal knowledge that governs the processing of data in the current information society, with particular regard to new digital media.
The limitations established by the legislator for the processing of data, their circulation and the liabilities deriving from the possible violation of the relevant rules will be the subject of an in-depth study.
[Ethics module]
The Ethics module aims to provide some basic tools of contemporary ethical reflection; to enable students to recognize an ethical dilemma in a public debate or in daily professional practice; to learn to examine and reformulate it on the basis of the reflection tools learned; to be able to critically elaborate an operational perspective in the face of dilemmas and controversial cases encountered.

At the end of the course the student has to show to have acquired the following skills:
● ability to analyze the realm of the so-called documentality, within the horizon of a complex society in relation to the influence of the IT device
● knowledge and capability to interpret and know how to use the concepts of truth, device, objectification, subjectivation and responsibility, as well as the articulated interaction of the phenomena that these concepts allow to describe and direct.

Graduation

Deadlines and administrative fulfilments

For deadlines, administrative fulfilments and notices on graduation sessions, please refer to the Graduation Sessions - Science and Engineering service.

Need to activate a thesis internship

For thesis-related internships, it is not always necessary to activate an internship through the Internship Office. For further information, please consult the dedicated document, which can be found in the 'Documents' section of the Internships and work orientation - Science e Engineering service.

Final examination regulations

Upon completion of the Degree programme, students will need to submit and present their thesis/dissertation, which must be in English and focusing on a scientific topic covered during the programme. Alternatively, the thesis/dissertation may consist of the analysis and solution of a case study (theoretical and/or relevant to a real industrial context), experimental work, possibly developed as part of an internship, or original and independent research work that may include mathematical formalisation, computer design and a business-oriented approach.

These activities will be carried out under the guidance of a Thesis Supervisor at a University facility, or even outside the University of Verona, either in Italy or abroad, provided that they are recognised and accepted for this purpose in accordance with the teaching regulations of the Master's Degree programme in Data Science.

22 CFU credits shall be awarded for the final examination (assessment of the thesis/dissertation).

The Graduation Committee, which is in charge of the evaluation of the final examination (presentation of the dissertation in English) shall evaluate each candidate, based on their achievements throughout the entire degree programme, carefully assessing the degree of consistency between educational and professional objectives, as well as their ability for independent intellectual elaboration, critical thinking, communication skills and general cultural maturity, in relation to the objectives of the Master's Degree programme in Data Science, and in particular, in relation to the topics dealt with by the candidate in their thesis.

Students may take the final exam only after they have passed all the other modules and exams that are part of their individual study plan, and fulfil all the necessary administrative requirements, in accordance with the terms indicated in the General Study Manifesto.

The graduation exam and ceremony will be carried out by the Graduation Committee appointed by the Chair of the Teaching Committee and composed of a President and at least four other members chosen among the University's lecturers.

The thesis/dissertation will be assessed by the Dissertation Committee, which is composed of three lecturers possibly including the Thesis Supervisor, and appointed by the Chair of the Teaching Committee. The Dissertation Committee shall produce an evaluation of the dissertation, which will be submitted to the Graduation Committee, which will issue the final graduation mark. The Teaching Committee shall govern the procedures of the Dissertation Committee and the Graduation Committee, and any procedures relating to the score awarded for the final exam through specific regulations issued by the Teaching Committee.
