Course Objectives

Graduates in Chemical-Toxicological Sciences and Safety in the Environment engage in the improvement of environmental conditions through the identification of situations that pose a threat to living environments and are potentially damaging to the population.

They also deal with the elimination of threatening situations, and the continuous improvement of environmental conditions, including the quality and safety of elements that form part of the food chain.

The competences developed by graduates can also be useful from a social perspective, since they can help to:

  • promote the diffusion of scientific and cultural awareness
  • ensure the protection of the environment and hence the health of the population
  • revive cultural commitment in this regard and support, through discussion, information and enterprise, the promotion of positions that foster environmental protection, leading to an immediate improvement in the health conditions of the population.

The degree programme aims to offer training in the methods of chemical, biological, microbiological and toxicological analysis, following certified methods, and in the preparation of protocols for monitoring pollutants in the environment (water, air and ground) and contaminants in foodstuffs, in order to train graduates to deal with the planning of preventive and environmental education initiatives geared at safeguarding the health of the population.

Career and Employment

Graduates in Chemical-Toxicological Sciences and Safety in the Environment can pursue careers in the following professional ambits:

  • life science specialists (biology, biochemistry, microbiology and pharmacology)
  • technical health science professions (clinical analysis laboratory technicians, biochemical laboratory technicians and food product technicians) particularly in the pharmaceutical industry
  • publishing and the diffusion of scientific information
  • the cosmetic and food industries
  • toxicological and environmental survey and study centres and authorities responsible for the drafting of health regulations
  • universities and other public and private research institutes and authorities, and National Healthcare System facilities.
