Course Objectives and Structure
The Master's degree in Industrial Chemistry trains students in disciplines of chemistry and prepares them to industry-oriented research and technology.
The Master’s Degree in Industrial Chemistry aims primarily to provide students with a broad understanding across all aspects of chemistry, industrial chemistry and industrial plant design at advanced level.
Students may also explore in depth specialized areas of chemistry of materials, including polymers, metals and nanosized materials, as well as of physical chemistry of formulations, industrial catalysis, energy conversion and storage and process scale up.
The Master's degree will allow students to acquire a vision of Chemistry from the perspective of the industrial and research sectors and the use of English is an added value that will permit students to become familiar with specific terminology in Chemistry.
The Master of Science in Industrial Chemistry is a full time intensive program that runs over 24 months (120 credits). Students will complete 11 exams: 3 mandatory courses and 8 courses among different eligible courses in order to build a personalized curriculum.
A Master’s project of 39 credit, a research project completed under the guidance of a supervisor, and presented as a public thesis defense will conclude the course of study.
A Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry or Industrial Chemistry or in any Science and Technology discipline obtained in any Italian or foreign University is required. A minimum background in mathematics, physics and informatics is required. Fluency in spoken and written English minimum al B1 level is required.
All students who meet the above requirements are admitted to an interview in September. The interview is aimed at verifying the motivations of the candidates, the above-mentioned skills and the knowledge of English language.
- Manager in private or public Companies in the field of energy, human health, environment and public administration both in R&D and marketing activities.
- Head of R&D in pre-industrial and industrial plants in many industrial sectors.
- Expert in the field of patents and in all activities of promotion and development of the scientific and technological innovation.
About 90% of our graduates are employed full-time in private or public companies as industrial chemists within one year from the completion of their studies, or are enrolled in post-graduates courses.
The Master’s degree in Industrial Chemistry gained the EuroMaster Label that certifies the educational qualification provided by the Master’s Degree Course in Industrial Chemistry as a master’s degree recognized by the European Universities and gives the right to access the post-graduate courses of chemistry at the European level.
