University of Perugia’s Open Source Master Course

The University of Perugia is offering a master course on Open Source. “Software developers and IT policy makers need to understand the importance and potential of this type of software and how to combine it with proprietary IT systems.”

The ‘Master di I° Livello in Sistemi e Tecnologie Free Libre Open Source per la Società dell’Informazione e della Comunicazione’ (First level master in Open Source systems and technology for the Information Society) was presented during a seminar on Open Source in the city of Orvieto, on 13 September.

Students who complete the training are expected to be able to use, and implement Open Source technologies and Open Standards. “They should be able to deploy such applications in mission critical and high-performance systems”, the University writes on it’s website for the master course. “They should be able to use Open Standards to increase access to services and to make the use of IT systems easier.”
