Course overview

The Master's Degree Programme in Sustainable Chemistry and Technologies aims to train professionals with solid scientific and technological skills, which are essential both for entering the labour market and for continuing their studies. Specifically, it guarantees a solid theoretical, applied and experimental preparation in the main sectors of chemistry with a strong focus on the green transition.

The course is divided into teaching in the field of physical, inorganic, organic, analytical chemistry and biochemistry of advanced content, with the aim of ensuring the student mastery of methods and scientific content in the field of chemistry, with particular regard to the aspect of higher education and scientific research. The teaching is strongly focused on the development of knowledge and skills regarding green and sustainable chemistry and the development of processes with low environmental impact in a zero-waste perspective of circular economy.

The course trains highly qualified chemists to develop original ideas, design and study new reactions and/or processes, carry out the synthesis of new molecules or materials, develop innovative and complex analytical methods, to apply their knowledge in the various industrial and product fields, to implement initiatives aimed at protecting health and the environment with a high degree of autonomy in the work environment, which enables them to assume high positions of responsibility in the implementation of projects.

Some of the scientific areas characterising this MSc are eco-sustainable chemistry, advanced analytical and electrochemical sensor chemistry, new sustainable industrial technologies, synthesis and microscopic characterisation of new materials and nanomaterials, inorganic chemistry of f-block elements, theoretical and computational chemistry, advanced spectroscopy, biomolecular chemistry and biochemistry.

With the aim of ‘learning by doing’, the degree programme includes many theoretical and practical lessons, which involve numerous laboratory exercises. In addition, at the end of the degree programme, students will carry out an experimental research thesis, which may also be carried out abroad or in companies and which will enable them to learn advanced research methodologies and to learn how to design, conduct and interpret scientific experiments in various fields.

The Master's degree programme is organised in three curricula, one of which is in English:

  • Chemistry
  • Industrial Chemistry
  • Biomolecular Chemistry (in English)

Curricula available

  • Chemistry;
  • Industrial Chemistry;
  • Biomolecular Chemistry (in English).

Occupational profiles

Master's graduates in Sustainable Chemistry and Technology have advanced theoretical and practical skills with which they may competently operate as employees or freelance professionals in all of the departments of a companies or a research institutes, as well as perform managerial tasks in chemical and manufacturing industries.
Moreover, they may register on the Italian roll of chemists (section A), once the relevant professional licensing examination has been passed.

Attendance

Open, though laboratory attendance is compulsory.

Examination assessment and graduation

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.
During the whole university career, the various skills and knowledge acquired by students will be assessed through written and oral examinations.
The degree exam consists in writing a thesis, which must possess the characters of originality, exhaustive documentation and scientific investigation and which will be discussed with a committee of university professors and experts.
