Chemical safety and Toxicological Environmental Sciences
The main objectives of the course Chemical-Toxicological and Environmental Safety Sciences (SSCTA) are: learning the traditional and novel analytical approaches in the area of chemistry, biology, microbiology and toxicology. The methods are developed, according to certified procedures or new protocols, to measure pollutants present in the environment (water, air, soil) and contaminants in foods. These activities provide suitable and innovative tools to the bodies in charge for prevention and education.
The main goals of the degree in Chemical-Toxicological and Environmental Safety Sciences (SSCTA) are: 1) the contribution to the improvement of living conditions by identifying harmful environmental situations at risk for the population; 2) to help overcoming hazards and achieving better environmental conditions including the quality and the safety of the food chain. Moreover, the qualification of the students in SSCTA can be socially useful because they could promote a better cultural and scientific aggregation in understand environmental systems and predict environmental changes. The degree in SSCTA allows a specific culture and scientific expertise, which can be applied to support appropriate initiatives in environmental protection, that have a strict correlation with the protection of animal and human health.
The Universities hosting SSCTA students are at the moment located in Romania (Transilvania University of Brasov); Spain (Universities of Madrid and Granada), and Slovenia (University of Ljubljana).
The mobility is aimed to acquire credits (attending courses) and/or work in a training program, which can be used to prepare the final thesis
The universities involved in the exchanges offer activities in the area of biochemistry, pharmacology, and analytical methods (including both traditional and novel approaches).
Each student has a tutor, selected among the SSCTA teachers. All information about international mobility is reported at https://www.unimi.it/en/education/chemical-safety-and-toxicological-env….
Reward for the period spent abroad:
According to the period spent abroad, each student must prepare a suitable Learning Agreement in term of credits:
- An academic year: 60 credits;
- An academic semester: 30 credits;
- A three-months period: 20 CFU
The students must obtain at least 70% of credits established in the Learning Agreement. For students spending a training period abroad, the student must obtain all credits reported in the Learning Agreement.
For the students, who finalize positively their training period, a reward is planned at the end of the academic carrier. Extra marks, ranging between 1 and 3 (according to the period spent abroad, the number of credits obtained, and the value of the whole experience), are added to the final grade taking into consideration the tutor's proposal.
Course attendance is compulsory, but there are tailored tracks for part-time students.
For further information visit the page: https://www.unimi.it/en/study/bachelor-and-master-study/fees-and-how-pay-them/part-time-enrolment and the degree programme website https://scta.cdl.unimi.it/it.
Student workers enrolling on a part-time basis should agree with faculty how to attend lectures and laboratories. Student workers who do not enrol on a part-time basis may agree a tailored track with individual faculty members, with partial/full waivers from course attendance, provided they submit evidence of their work activity. If the student works in laboratories using the same techniques as the programme laboratories, they may be partially/fully waived from laboratory attendance, upon agreement with the instructor. To take advantage of these accommodations, the student must submit a certificate stating their employment contract and working hours to the academic office (via Golgi) at the beginning of the year.
