  • If you attend as a first year student, you need to take courses for 60 credits; 
  • as a second year, only 30 credits from classes as the other 30 will be your master thesis. 

Both need to take 6 credits of "Applied Math", usually Numerical Linear Algebra, and 3 credits of type F, that will usually be a seminar.

Here are the Algant courses at the University of Milan. A full year consists of 60 credits.

In parenthesis are indicated the CFU credits, where 6+3 means that you can either take the 6 credits version, or the 9 credits one.
