OPIT - Open Institute of Technology introduces BSc in Modern Computer Science and MSc in Applied Data Science in AI. Addressing the tech job demand, the online higher education institution aims to equip students with up-to-date skills. Starting in September, the BSc can be completed in two years, while the MSc caters to those transitioning into tech careers. Accredited within EQF and MQF, OPIT's faculty comprises international professors with strong theoretical and practical expertise, responding to the labor market's needs.

A new online higher education institution, OPIT – Open Institute of Technology, has introduced two degrees – a BSc in Modern Computer Science and an MSc in Applied Data Science in AI.

OPIT is hoping to challenge the hiring demand for tech workers. It is estimated that, in the US alone, there will be more than a million new tech jobs by the end of the decade.

The Bachelor’s Degree in Modern Computer Science* will start in mid-September, and it is possible to have completed it in only two years.

The Master of Science Degree in Applied Data Science and Artificial Intelligence* is a path designed for anyone with a three-year degree, even if not in the technical field, and who wishes to build a career between business and data or technology.

OPIT oriented towards the acquisition of up-to-date skills in the crucial sector of Computer Science. Through live lessons, masterclasses, videos, quizzes, exercises, and internally developed digital content, students can access training courses at any time, wherever they are, but without sacrificing quality and community, thanks to specific features integrated into the app. OPIT is a fully accredited institute within the EQF (European Qualification Framework) and the MQF. The degrees awarded have full legal value in Europe and are professionally recognized by employers.

OPIT consists of staff formed by international professors, from countries such as Canada, the USA, Italy, Brazil, and others, with strong teaching experiences in some of the best international universities, such as Santa Clara University, University of Michigan, and many more. They also have important professional or research experiences, in order to guarantee teaching that is based on solid theoretical foundations but is capable of applying them to real problems.

Speaking about the announcement, Professor Francesco Profumo, Rector of OPIT and former Minister of Education, University and Research of Italy, said, “In an era marked by an inevitable acceleration towards the most urgent transitions that society requires of us, including the digital one, OPIT’s mission is to focus on quality online education in the Computer Science field.”

“The starting point is the awareness of the misalignment in the labor market, between what is taught and what companies are looking for today.”

“That so-called mismatch generated by too much theory and too little practical approach.”

“We have identified the skills that can be the driver of change in the education market and then in society.”

*As a fully accredited institute within the EQF (European Qualification Framework) and the MQF, the degrees awarded by OPIT have full legal value in Europe and are professionally recognized by employers. Their accreditation is pending.”
