Basic knowledge of probability theory, signal theory, and pattern recognition.


Learning the basic concepts of deep learning algorithms. The main Machine Learning algorithms will be covered, followed by a focus on those related to deep learning, with particular emphasis on their application in the field of mechatronics.

The student acquires knowledge related to the field of Machine Learning, with particular reference to the ability to extract quantitative and qualitative information from images and videos and multivariate data and their subsequent processing for regression and classification tasks.

The student acquires the capability to implement the algorithms in Matlab through dedicated lessons during the course to the aim of being able to autonomously develop new codes for the solution of specific problems in different application fields.

The student must be able to integrate the basic knowledge provided with those deriving from the other courses, such as probability, signal theory, and pattern recognition.

The student develops a project in Matlab that illustrates during the oral exam. The project can be done in groups to demonstrate working group capabilities.

Students will need to be able to read and understand scientific texts and articles in English for in-depth exploration of the topics covered. They should also independently expand their knowledge of the subject to include topics not directly addressed in the course, particularly those connected with the rapid technological developments in the field of Deep Learning and, more generally, in machine learning.


Today, deep neural networks surpass traditional hand-crafted algorithms and match human performance in various complex tasks, including image recognition, natural language processing, and prediction models. This course offers a comprehensive introduction to neural networks (NNs), covering traditional feedforward (FFNN) and recurrent (RNN) neural networks, as well as the most advanced deep-learning models like convolutional neural networks (CNN), Variational Autoencoders, and Diffusion models.

The primary objective of the course is to equip students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to understand and utilize neural networks (NN), while also familiarizing them with deep learning techniques for solving complex engineering challenges.
This goal is pursued in the course by:
• Describing the most important algorithms for NN training (e.g., backpropagation, adaptive gradient algorithms, etc.)
• Illustrating the best practices for successful training and using these models (e.g., dropout, data augmentation, etc.) in a practical session using a phyton environment.
• Providing an overview of the most successful Deep Learning architectures (e.g., convolutional networks, autoencoder for embedding, diffusion models, etc.)
• Providing an overview of the most successful applications with particular emphasis on models for solving visual recognition tasks.

The University of Central Florida’s College of Engineering and Computer Science seeks applications for its PhD

The University of Central Florida’s College of Engineering and Computer Science seeks applications for its PhD

The University of Central Florida’s College of Engineering and Computer Science seeks applications for its PhD for the Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 admissions cycles. Approximately 92% of our PhD students are funded through fellowships, research assistantships, and teaching assistantships. Prospective students can filter through our collection of available research positions at the following webpage:



Over 100 positions are available. Because of your connection to students at University of Rome Tor Vergata, it would be great if you could share this with individuals who might be interested in continuing their engineering or computer science studies in Orlando, FL, USA.

The application process begins here: https://grad.cecs.ucf.edu/prospective-students/applying/. Questions can be referred to me at ali@ucf.edu. I appreciate your help.


Many Thanks,

Take metro A to the Anagnina terminus and then bus 20, which passes through the various points of Tor Vergata. Alternatively, you can take line C at a stop at Torre Angela, but reaching it from there is quite complicated.

Bus serivce Tor Vergata (private)




Navetta A: from Monday to Friday, connections with the Tor Vergata railway station (via Fermi – Municipality of Frascati) and the Macroarea of Sciences MFN, passing through the various Macroareas/ Faculty;

Navetta B: from Monday to Friday (first run at 7.30 AM and last run at 05:40 PM), connects the Metro Station A Anagnina with Campus X/ CLA, passing through the university and stopping at the Metro C Torre Angela.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: For the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme, Learning Agreements must be managed online. Higher Education Institutions can do this by using the Online Learning Agreement platform or an equivalent system connected to the Erasmus Without Paper Network. Therefore, this template is provided by the European Commission for information purposes only and must not be used to manage Learning Agreements for studies. Please visit the Erasmus Without Paper Competence Centre for a more detailed data standard, to which all equivalent systems need to adhere.
