Course overview

The Master's Degree course deepens the study of the chemical sciences, both theoretical and experimental. It trains highly qualified chemists able to elaborate original ideas, to plan and study new reactions and/or processes, to synthesize new molecules or materials, to develop innovative and complex analytical methods, to apply knowledge in different industrial fields and products, and to implement initiatives aimed at protecting health and the environment.
Some of the scientific areas characterizing this master's degree course concern eco-sustainable chemistry, advanced analytical chemistry and electrochemical sensors, sustainable new industrial technologies, Synthesis and microscopic characterizations of new materials and nanomaterials, inorganic chemistry of F-block elements, theoretical chemistry and computational, advanced spectroscopy, which is a result of the research conducted by the teachers of the department at the international level.
A large part of the characteristic activity is carried out during the graduation internship where the students are firstly exposed to advanced research methods and where they learn to plan, conduct and interpret scientific experiments in the most diverse fields.

Curricula available

  • Chemistry;
  • Industrial Chemistry.

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.


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.
