The Master's Degree program in Industrial chemistry complies with the European standards of reference for Sciences and technologies of Industrial chemistry and provides technical skills in the disciplines of chemistry and industrial chemistry and in their applications.
The Master's Degree course in Industrial chemistry aims at preparing chemists with a good knowledge of theory and practical aspects of the industrial production in different areas of chemistry, specifically concerning the product-process relationship. They will acquire good knowledge of economics and management and learn to work independently and to take responsibilities of projects and structures.
The Master's Degree program in Industrial chemistry, entirely taught in English, is designed to train high-quality human capital, capable to take on the challenges of the global economy, favoring access of graduates in Industrial chemistry to the world labor market. The key role given to English in this learning program is justified by the fact that English has long since represented a global communication tool in economy and society, which will contribute to the achievement of the prefixed quality objectives.
Graduates in the Industrial chemistry will be able to carry out, among others, the following activities: promotion and development of the scientific and technological innovation; planning and management of industrial technologies; holding functions of high responsibility in the industrial, environmental, health care, and public service sectors.
Graduates in the Industrial chemistry are expected to find employment in: research and development in chemical and electrochemical industries; design and management of pilot plants, chemical plants; industries and research centers working in diversified sectors of conventional and innovative materials; design and production of generators and electrochemical sensors.
The acquired competences allow graduates to have open access to several industrial sectors such as those of polymeric materials, food industry, agrochemicals, additives, auxiliaries, materials for electronics, ecology, intellectual property (patents) and business management. The Master’s Degree in Industrial chemistry constitutes a preferential title to access the PhD program in the area of industrial chemistry.
Application and Admissions free, subject to entry requirements
The prerequisite to access the Master’s Degree program in Industrial chemistry is holding a bachelor’s degree belonging to the L-27 or the L-21 (former class of Chemical sciences and technologies, Ministry decree 509/99) class of degree courses in Science and Technology obtained in any Italian universities, provided the mandatory curricular requirements are satisfied.
The curricular prerequisite to access the Master's Degree course in Industrial chemistry are those peculiar of the L-27 class of degree courses, and in particular:
- at least 20 ects in disciplines of mathematics, information technology and physics
- at least 70 ects in discipline groups belonging to the distinguishing areas included in the L-27 class table:
- analytical and environmental chemistry CHIM/01 and CHIM/12;
- inorganic and physical chemistry CHIM/03 e CHIM/02;
- industrial and technology CHIM/04, CHIM/05 and ING-IND/21-22, ING-IND/25;
- organic chemistry and biochemistry CHIM/06, BIO/10-12.
The minimum entry requirement in English proficiency is level B1 (“lower intermediate”) of the Common European Framework.
In order to get their degree, students are required to certify their knowledge of the English language at the B2 level in one of the following ways: by submitting a language certificate accepted by the University of Milan and attesting a B2 or higher level of knowledge or, in alternative, by sitting for the Placement Test run by SLAM-Servizio Linguistico di Ateneo.
Students enrolled in the Industrial Chemistry course are encouraged to apply to the Erasmus Plus actions, where various positions are available in 20 European universities in Spain, France, United Kingdom and North Europe (more information at https://www.unimi.it/en/international/study-abroad/studying-abroad-erasmus)
They can earn their credits by following courses and/or by performing part of their experimental thesis abroad.
Before leaving, students must submit a Learning Agreement to be approved by the Teaching Board: this approval is mandatory for the acquisitions of the credits.
It is mandatory to attend the Laboratory courses/modules.
In all the other cases the attendance is strongly suggested.

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.
