Science and Technology @ LaStatale
The Science and Technology area offers 14 bachelor's degree programmes and 16 master's degree programmes, as well as vocational teaching activities, such as training courses for secondary school teachers.
With a scientific community of 500 people, including professors and researchers, the Science and Technology area counts around 9,000 students in classrooms and teaching laboratories every year.
A wide range of scientific disciplines and methodological approaches is coordinated by didactic, departmental or interdepartmental academic boards composed of teachers and students.
Science and Technology programmes - including research training - provide employment opportunities in public and private research institutes, industrial and third-sector organizations, as well as in freelance professions and teaching.
The Faculty of Science and Technology has long been engaged in activities and initiatives for the popularisation, sharing and dissemination of scientific culture and hosts the Milano Città Studi section of the National Plan for Science Degrees, which is in turn divided into several subsections – Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Biology and Biotechnology, Geology, Computer Science, Natural and Environmental Sciences. It provides students with internship opportunities and short and self-assessment workshops, and teachers with training modules.
The National Plan for Science Degrees was launched by the Ministry of Education to arouse interest and improve students' preparation in basic sciences, as well as to enhance the interaction between university and business and favour the inclusion of young people in the high technology market.
