Topic outline


     The Master's Degree in Chemical Sciences and Technologies belongs to the Class of Degrees in Chemical Sciences (LM-54), has a duration of two years and involves the acquisition of 120 university credits (UC) for the achievement of the degree. There are 11 exams that provide for the acquisition of 78 UC. The remaining credits will be acquired through other educational activities such as the thesis (30 UC), seminars (1 UC) and the final exam (11 UC). Indicatively, the scheduled examinations are 9 in the first year and 2 in the second year.

    The Master's Degree is open access to those who have a Bachelor degree; to check the chemical knowledge an admission interview is done, to evaluate the personal preparation. The official language of the course is Italian, but some courses borrowed from other Master’s Degrees are taught in English and other courses may be taught in English in the presence of foreign students.

    At the end of the studies, the Master's Degree in Chemical Sciences and Technologies is awarded. The title allows access to PhD courses. The Master's degree is accredited by Chemistry Euromaster®.

    Graduates in Chemical Science and Technology have the possibility to enroll in section a of the professional register of Italian Chemists, after passing the State Exam.

    The Master's Degree aims to provide students with a solid basic cultural preparation in the various chemical fields and a high mastery of methods and scientific content in the innovative aspects of modern chemistry regarding the study of complex systems and applications in advanced fields of research and production.

    The Master's Degree, for the A.A. 2020-2021, is articulated in a single path including a first block of compulsory courses in the disciplines of Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, and Polymer Chemistry, with the aim of completing the knowledge acquired with the Degree and introducing the most advanced specialist knowledge. Subsequently, on the basis of their cultural and professional interests, the students can choose from a list of thematic courses the most suitable courses to acquire specific skills in the areas of: sustainable products and processes and renewable energy; advanced materials; biomolecular applications; chemistry of formulations; methodologies of modern chemistry. The final exam involves the carrying out of an internship activity, which is functional to the drafting of the final project that is presented and discussed by the student in the graduation session.

    88,2% of the students enrolled in the academic year 2015/2016 (University data) graduated within two or three years after the enrollment..

    On the basis of the data reported in the last AlmaLaurea Survey, after one year from the date of degree obtainment the graduate students of the course reported an employment rate of 94% (compared to a national average of 81%).
