BA in IT and Data Science
Degree Awarded: Bologna accredited Bachelor in IT and Data Science
As the world we are living in underwent a fundamental change from an industrial society to an “information society”, information technology became the most dynamic and influential industry of our times. From its inception just half a century ago, computing has become the defining force of our civilization, changing every single aspect of how we live and work.
With this course, the students will gain knowledge and skills in software engineering, mobile application development, database management, and similar, to be able to identify how to address and solve real-life problems based on data, as well as create value through innovation and technology management. As well as modern business concepts, students will gain highly relevant IT skills that are of crucial importance for professional success in today's society.
All methodologies, concepts, frameworks and technologies that we provide students with are academically relevant and have been tried and tested by professionals in a real world. We apply newly acquired practices through engaged and interactive hand-on training.
Key Disciplines Covered:
- Software Engineering
- Artificial Intelligence & Big Data
- Web Design and Development
- Mobile App Design & Development
- Database Management
- Business Strategy
- Business Process Management
- Software Engineering: Writing quality software is hard, challenging and can be overwhelming. However, the engineering principle is followed, quality can be guaranteed. In this sense, you will learn how to apply engineering to the development of software in a systematic method, and explore all the stages of the Software Development Life Cycle (system analysis, design, implementation, verification/testing, maintenance) making use of the latest technologies and methodologies.
- Web Design & Development: Learn how to design and develop your own dynamic and interactive web. You will specialize in both frontend (client-side aspects that relates directly with the browser) and backend (server-side programming) of website creation, being able to develop and work with the different web layers: structure, presentation and behaviour. Always with hands-on training in real-world technologies.
- Business Process Management: Develop an understanding of the importance and usefulness of business process modelling. Experience the benefits of using an IT infrastructure to analyse, (re)design, and improve end-to-end core business processes to continue to serve customers and remain competitive. Learn how to model, design and implement business processes with a Business Process Management System.
- Mobile App Design & Development:Majority of digital media consumption now takes place in mobile apps. Therefore, Mobile app development is steadily growing, in revenues and jobs created. Learn not only how to develop mobile applications (both frontend and backend), but also how to design them defining an understandable, user-friendly interface.
- Data-Base Management: Learn how to organize the data to model aspects of reality in a way that supports processes requiring information. Develop the skills to design, create, query, update and administrate databases using a database management system (DBMS).
- Business Strategy:Learn how to formulate and implement a successful business strategy. Particularly focusing on how to differentiate your customer value proposition in the aim to “win” despite increasingly fierce competition in global markets, and on how social media can be leveraged to your advantage and the critical success factors in the 21st Century.
- Artificial Intelligence & Big Data: With every single use of technology, a new record containing information related to a certain activity can potentially be tracked. Dealing with this information is a real challenge in the IT community in order to improve elements such as cost-related procedures, customers’ assessment or global human health. In this sense, you will learn how to address and solve real-life problems based on data; get expertise in supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning, which are the three main branches of the artificial intelligence; implement solutions using different machine learning approaches, and learn how to build predictive models of different nature (parametric and non-parametric) that will allow you to predict an event of interest for a new given record.
