Mathematical and Computing Sciences for Artificial Intelligence

Program Director Riccardo Zecchina

This unique program stands at the intersection of major scientific disciplines: mathematics, computer science, physics, and economics. All of them are crucial for analyzing natural and social phenomena and, in particular, to develop the Artificial InteIligence (AI)  tools that model the complex realities stored in the vast datasets available today.

Bright, math-oriented students who want to acquire a deep and well-rounded understanding of the natural and social worlds, and who grasp the growing impact of AI, will see in this program a great opportunity. Through this multidisciplinary path, they will have the chance to step into the elite ranks of scholars and professionals who will guide the development of future knowledge and its real-world applications, in AI and elsewhere. They will learn to nurture the emergence of new knowledge and to value new points of view.

Demand for skillsets that combine elements of STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is very strong and growing. This BSc focuses on critical and methodological abilities from those same areas that will remain valid even as new technologies succeed one another, so graduates can confidently expect long and rewarding careers.

The study plan aims to provide a rigorous theoretical preparation, in terms of contents and methods, in different areas of mathematics and computer science and in the modelling techniques of physics and economics. Students receive methodological training in data driven AI (machine learning, computational statistics) and, at the same time, master the main mathematical, computational and modelling methods for the solution of quantitative problems and for making progress in the AI field itself.

In addition, soft skills such as effective communication and ability to work in a team are developed, enabling graduates to integrate and collaborate effectively in academic and professional contexts.

The BSc in Mathematical and Computing Sciences for Artificial Intelligence will open students’ minds and empower them with the best preparation to excel in the new digital era.

The program is subject to completion of approval process by Ministry of Universities and Research

Bocconi is about more than just classes

Your years on campus are about more than just the classes you attend: Bocconi and Milan also promote activities focused on culture, sports, art and sharing ideas. They help make your Bocconi experience an exciting time that is key to personal and professional growth.

A growing campus

Our campus is a safe, multicultural and lively place, located in downtown Milan. Both its historic buildings and new spaces are integrated into the urban fabric to create an active environment, reverberating with university life. Starting in 2019, the campus will expand to include a recreational sports center, a large park and a new student residence hall.

A European and cosmopolitan city

Milan is an open, international and multicultural city, a European metropolis full of events and public services with an unparalleled nightlife. It is a renowned symbol of fashion and design, as well as an important financial, economic and business hub.

Once a Bocconian, always a Bocconian!

You become a member of the Bocconi community when you start your program, joining other students, faculty, staff and Alumni. But Bocconi is not only a real community where you spend your days on campus, but also – and increasingly more so – a community you can get to know through our online social networks.
