Network & Data Science @univaq

A curriculum of the Laurea Magistrale in Informatica at the University of L’Aquila bringing students to the core of the complexity of networks and data

Why NeDaS?

Complex networks and big data lie at the core of modern computer applications. The Internet is the quintessence of this binomium: a billion node decentralized network involving an extremely massive set of data, basically the entire human knowledge, and beyond - and indeed a critical task is transforming these data into actual information!

Through the study of advanced topics and methodologies in graph and web algorithms, computational intelligence, databases, data analytics, game theory, and more, students enrolling to NeDaS will learn how to handle the challenging interplay between complex networks and big data. The curriculum also includes a comprehensive set of state-of-the-art courses, in order to maintain a concrete connection with the rapidly evolving world of ICT applications in the domain of interest.
