This Master's Degree Programme provides those who are interested in nano-technologies a strong multidisciplinary education in material science, chemistry and biology, preparing them to become professional figures able to design, synthesize and create new and innovative nano- and bio-materials.

You will attend classes and labs on how to prepare nano- and biomaterials and in particular on the chemical-physical characteristics, their properties, their methods of preparation and their applications. You will discover Italian or international companies or research labs with an internship.

Thanks to the skills you will gain, you will be able to apply in all the technical sectors of companies which produce, market, transform or develop materials or pursue your education with a doctorate degree.

 

This Master's Degree Programme aims to provide graduates with a solid multidisciplinary education in physics, chemistry and biology, and the ability to hold positions of high responsibility in complex process management such as planning, synthesis and characterisation of materials, of a biological nature too. The educational activities include theoretical activities and laboratories relating to preparation and characterisation of bio- and nano-materials. In particular, chemical-physical characteristics, properties and preparation methods of nano-structured materials, as well as their applications, will be investigated.
The educational activities include classroom teaching, workshops and internships, in order to acquire wide-ranging skills that can be readily transferable into the world of work.
The study plan embrace basic (theoretical) educational and laboratory activities relating to preparation and characterisation of bio- and nano-materials. In particular, chemical-physical characteristics, properties and preparation methods of nano-structured materials, as well as their applications, will be investigated.
During the whole university career, the various skills and knowledge acquired by students will be assessed through written and oral examinations.
