Language: Italian

The Bachelor in Materials Science provides the student with the knowledge of physics and chemistry (in addition to the necessary mathematics) useful for achieving the first two objectives, guaranteeing both solid theoretical foundations and a high participation in laboratory activities.

The course is structured in:

  • Compulsory attendance at numerous laboratory courses;
  • Basic teachings in Chemistry and Physics (quantitatively balanced and supported by Mathematics teachings), particularly aimed at tackling and solving problems;

Specific Teachings of Science materials through which students gradually integrate the two different approaches, chemical and physical, aimed at studying materials;

Final internship at companies or research institutions (public or private) operating in the materials sector and who have signed specific didactic collaboration agreements with this Degree Course.

The 180 credits of the three-year course are divided into 20 exams, plus a foreign language exam, and the final exam.

The courses last six months, with the exception of the course "General inorganic chemistry with laboratory" which is divided into two modules - extends over two semesters.

Objectives

The Bachelor in Materials Science aims to ensure the attending student the acquisition of

  • basic knowledge on the chemical and physical properties of materials,
  • of experimental skills for their characterization,
  • of technical-professional skills for their use for applicative purposes.

In particular, the proposed courses aim to provide:

1) an in-depth knowledge of chemistry and physics in their experimental and theoretical aspects;

2) the understanding and use of the appropriate mathematical tools and adequate knowledge IT tools for data and results management;

3) a solid working methodology and an interdisciplinary approach oriented towards problem solving;

4) specific laboratory skills, through a variety of techniques in the fields of analysis, characterization and of the synthesis of materials;

5) ability of scientific communication and work co ordered within groups.

After a three-year degree, you can:

  1. enter the world of work
  2. enroll in the Master's degree

Furthermore, job opportunities such as access to technical professions in government organizations or private sectors (banking, insurance companies, services) at intermediate decision-making levels are possible; employment in industry as technical assistants (for example in sectors such as electronics, software / computing, telecommunications, synthesis and characterization of materials); employment in the information science and technology sector; the role of teacher in private organizations.

The industrial sectors interested in these professional figures are mainly the manufacturing ones involved in the production of goods with chemical, mechanical or electronic characteristics, without neglecting production sectors for improving the environment, saving energy and conserving cultural heritage.

Public and private research bodies are also interested in these professional figures.
