Prerequisite for the exam in Computer Science

LUISS University offers students the opportunity to participate in a multimedia course on basic computer skills, increasingly more important in order to join the workforce. In order to evaluate skills, standardized testing has become more popular. Among the variety of systems, the European Computer Driving License has become one of the most used and is recognized by the Italian national board, Accredia.

In order to take the Computer Science exam in the II semester (for the bachelor’s course in Economics and Management) or the exam in Introduction to Computer Programming in the I semester (bachelor’s degree course in Management and Computer Science), students must have completed the New ECDL modules in Word Processing, Spreadsheets and Presentation or the ECDL Core modules in elaborazione testi, foglio elettronico and strumenti di presentazione with syllabus 5.0.

Students who already meet the requirements must complete the form at least one week before the Computer Science exam date.

Students who do not meet the requirement can obtain the certifications through the LUISS Test Center. The center organizes official test sessions on a monthly basis in both English and Italian. All dates are published on the center’s calendar. Once a student has obtained all three certifications, they may then complete the form.

Students may also take the ECDL test free of charge at the University, in either English or Italian. Students may register online on a first-come first-served basis. Sessions may be extended if necessary. Please note that passing the single ECDL modules in Word Processing, Spreadsheets and Presentation cannot be used towards obtaining the official ECDL certification and are only valid in meeting the prerequisite to the exams in Computer Science and Information Systems.

Students may prepare for the ECDL tests using the video courses in Italian or the tutorials in English in the Digital Skills section of the University e-learning platform.
