The degree programme in Industrial Chemistry is designed to provide graduates with the skills, knowledge and learning tools required to carry out professional research, and development and production activities in the field of chemistry, including the following sectors: health, food, cosmetics, the environment, energy, communications, furnishing, and the automotive sector.
The course also aims to offer students the competences required to pursue professional occupations in industrial activities such as the development of chemical processes; research laboratories; monitoring facilities; the synthesis and characterisation of new materials; the environmental and energy sectors; public bodies in the chemical sectors; and related fields.
The degree programme in Industrial Chemistry prepares students either for immediate entry to the workplace, or to pursue further studies, offering a solid theoretical, experimental and applied grounding in the main sectors of chemistry.
In particular, it equips graduates with:
- a sufficient grasp of the tools required for an in-depth examination of operational considerations such as the connection between product and process;
- the capacity to evaluate theoretical and practical aspects relating to the transfer of the production of chemical products from laboratories to the industrial scale, in accordance with environmental considerations;
- a good command of experimental methodologies in the chemical and industrial fields;
- tools to support chemical and industrial chemical knowledge, in relation to other scientific and technical fields;
- the advanced knowledge of the fundamentals of industrial chemistry required to enter professions that require a good command of modern scientific methods and techniques.
Graduates possess the knowledge required to undertake professional occupations such as the design and synthesis of new industrial products for a wide range of uses and their subsequent production within companies, in addition to the testing and control of chemical production facilities, wastewater treatment and environmental clean-up plants, in order to guarantee security.
Industrial chemists can assume positions with chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical chemistry and machinist companies, as well as companies that deal with plastic materials, colorants, detergents, adhesives, and those operating within the environmental field. In the public sphere, Industrial Chemistry graduates can pursue career opportunities in the technical and ecological offices of local bodies, in customs laboratories, provincial hygiene, prophylaxis and analysis companies, and in occupational accident prevention services.
They can take up positions with public and private research bodies, in analysis, control and quality certification laboratories, and in all industries and workplaces that require basic knowledge of the chemistry and industrial chemistry sectors.
Upon completion of the State Examination, it is then possible for graduates to register with the National Register of Chemists, as Junior Chemists.
Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.
Access is subject to passing a test (TOLC-S, CISIA OnLine Test, www.cisiaonline.it ) which will give rise to a merit ranking.
Additional learning obligations (OFA)
Students who do not pass the entrance examination on maths, are assigned additional learning obligations (OFA, Obblighi formativi aggiuntivi) that they must fulfil in accordance with the provisions of the Programme Structure.
OFA: English language
Students must have level B1 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B1 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) Placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December.
Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.
As part of their study plan, students can participate in Erasmus projects available for the Degree Programme. Within the Erasmus Plus initiative, they can choose from 16 European partner universities in France, Spain, the United Kingdom and Northern Europe (for more information: https://www.unimi.it/it/internazionale/studiare-allestero/partire-con-erasmus/come-partecipare/erasmus-aree/erasmus-6).
Students will earn credits by following courses and passing the relevant exams at the host university, or by doing part or all of the final internship abroad. The acquisition of credits is subject to the Academic Board's approval of the Learning Agreement and to passing exams at the foreign university.
Students can also participate in numerous seminars with foreign teachers.

For students enrolled on bachelor’s, master’s and single cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments of different amounts and with different payment deadlines:
- the first, corresponding to the minimum amount, is the same for all students
- the second - technically referred to as an ‘all-inclusive fee’- that is variable.
Students can also be entitled for tuition fee reductions such as:
- lowering for students who meet high merit requirements
- fixed amounts calculated on the basis of the student's citizenship group for those with income/property abroad
- support for students who have political refugee status.
