This programme trains conservation scientists working in the conservation of historic-artistic heritage, with a strong scientific interdisciplinary education including chemistry, physics, biology, computer science and geology as well as innovative technologies for the conservation of artefacts, who will be able to interact with experts from other fields involved in the conservation process.

The graduate will be able to design and use new technologies for restoration, to develop prevention projects and to carry out investigations on artefacts.

Occupational profiles

Master’s Degree students will be able to carry out professional activities at professional companies and organisations operating in the sectors of restoration, protection of cultural heritage and the environmental recuperation as well as at local firms and specific institutions such as public and private superintendencies, libraries, archives and institutes of research.

Attendance

Final exam and graduation

Learning activities comprise taught courses, workshop-based projects and internships so that students can acquire a broad range of competencies that are transferable to the world of work.
Learning outcomes are continuously assessed by means of written exams, oral exams, assignments, project reports, presentations, and group as well as student-teacher discussions.
The final exam consists of in-depth discussion regarding research in the conservation of cultural heritage. The study will be in an experimental and / or applied nature, with particular attention paid to the development and application of new technologies, either in the field of diagnostics or intervention or both. This research may also cover the particular case studies, from which the scientific and innovative approach to issues related to restoration will emerge.
