Course overview

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.

Occupational profiles

Master's graduates in Sciences and Technologies of Bio- and Nano-Materials may be employed in all technical sectors, including managerial positions, of companies dealing with manufacturing, processing and development of materials of various nature, both structured and functional. Proper career opportunities may be also found in research and development laboratories, both public and private, operating in the field of materials investigation and certification.


The attendance to lessons and laboratory  is compulsory: at least 70% of classes and labs should be attended, unless otherwise stated in the course syllabus.
