This bachelor program is devoted to train up scientific professionals specialized for Studying and Preserving the Cultural Heritage and Information Storage Media.
People who get this bachelor's degree have specific methodological, scientific, and technological knowledge needed for:
- evaluating the state of preservation of cultural heritage, its morphological-structural characteristics, and the properties of its constituting materials;
- the identification, risks' evaluation, diagnosis and rescuing actions for avoiding deterioration processes in cultural heritage with respect to archaeological sites, historical-artistic artifacts, museum collections, information storage media and related contents;
- restoring of information storage media and related contents;
- taking the scientific-technological leadership of institutions and professional organizations devoted to the preservation, management, and maintenance of cultural heritage, and also of private professional organizations devoted to conservative restoration and environmental rescuing;
- being able to exchange professional oral and written information in at least a couple of European languages (tipically italian and english);
- doing operative actions for the communication, preservation, fruition, and management of information concerning cultural heritage;
- working in the frame of a team, with a high level of autonomy, easily joining a working environment.
A robust basic scientific education is coupled to this specialistic qualification, so that students acquire fundamental scientific and professional methodologies.
People who get the bachelor's degree in Science and Technology for Studying and Preserving the Cultural Heritage and Information Storage Media will conduct their professional activities for public and private institutions whose focus is on cultural heritage such as museums, libraries, archives, and also for professional companies working in the fields of archaelogical excavations, preservation and restoring of cultural heritage , information, and related storage media.
Specific roles and professional skills of people who get the bachelor's degree in Science and Technology for Studying and Preserving the Cultural Heritage and Information Storage Media, are only partially considered in the classification made by ISTAT, and particularly they are somewhat close to PROFESSIONI INTELLETTUALI, SCIENTIFICHE E DI ELEVATA SPECIALIZZAZIONE (2.5.4.5, 2.5.5.1.3); the main reason follows from the recent definition of new professional figures concerning Science and Technology for Studying and Preserving the Cultural Heritage and Information Storage Media.
This bachelor program is devoted to train up professional figures such as:
- experts in geoarchaelogy and archaeometry, skilled for the study, diagnosis, and preservation of archaelogical sites and artifacts, and also for supporting excavations' activities;
- experts in the application of analytical techniques for supporting historical-philological studies, characterizing materials and the causes of their degradation state, and defining needed rescuing actions;
- experts specialized in the exploitation of historical, scientific, technological, naturalistic cultural heritage: they will be able in understanding, diagnosis, preserving, managing, cataloguing, digitazing, exploitation, and cultural promotion;
- experts in the analysis of the preservation state, in the definition and application of the more efficient techniques for preserving, organizing, exploiting, and restoring of both information storage media (analogue and digital) and the related information contents.

Employment statistics (Almalaurea)
Il Corso di laurea in Scienze e tecnologie per lo studio e la conservazione dei beni culturali e dei supporti della informazione è ad accesso libero con test di verifica delle conoscenze obbligatorio, ma non selettivo, prima dell'immatricolazione.
La verifica viene svolta attraverso il TOLC (Test Online CISIA) che lo studente deve sostenere presso l'Università degli Studi di Milano o una qualsiasi altra Università aderente al CISIA (Consorzio Interuniversitario Sistemi Integrati per l'Accesso). Le iscrizioni al TOLC vanno effettuate sul sito del CISIA (www.cisiaonline.it).
I TOLC validi per l'iscrizione al Corso di laurea in Scienze e tecnologie per lo studio e la conservazione dei beni culturali e dei supporti della informazione sono il TOLC-B e il TOLC-S.
Gli studenti potranno immatricolarsi solo dopo avere sostenuto uno dei TOLC indicati, QUALUNQUE SIA L'ESITO:
· TOLC-B, suddiviso in 4 sezioni: Matematica di base (20 quesiti - 50 minuti), Biologia (10 quesiti - 20 minuti), Fisica (10 quesiti - 20 minuti), Chimica (10 quesiti - 20 minuti)
· TOLC-S, suddiviso in 4 sezioni: Matematica di base (20 quesiti - 50 minuti), Ragionamento e Problemi (10 quesiti - 20 minuti), Comprensione del testo (10 quesiti - 20 minuti), Scienze di base (10 quesiti - 20 minuti).
Ogni domanda presenta 5 possibili risposte, di cui una sola è corretta.
Punteggio: +1 per ogni risposta esatta, -0,25 per ogni risposta sbagliata, 0 per ogni risposta non data.
Alle matricole che nel modulo di Matematica non avranno raggiunto un punteggio maggiore o uguale a 10, saranno assegnati Obblighi Formativi Aggiuntivi (OFA).

In ogni TOLC è presente una sezione aggiuntiva di Inglese, composta da 30 quesiti da svolgere in 15 minuti, il cui esito non sostituisce l'accertamento della conoscenza della lingua inglese richiesto dal corso di laurea per l'acquisizione dei relativi crediti (si veda il paragrafo "Prove di lingua"), ma costituisce un'autovalutazione per lo studente.

Attività di supporto e prove di recupero.
Per gli studenti con OFA verranno organizzate attività di supporto nel periodo ottobre-dicembre, seguite da una prova di recupero con la quale lo studente dovrà dimostrare di aver migliorato la propria preparazione. In assenza di questa evidenza lo studente non potrà sostenere alcun esame del secondo anno prima di aver superato l'esame di Matematica generale.

Argomenti della prova, procedure di iscrizione, date, scadenze ed ogni altra informazione utile vengono pubblicate sul sito della Facoltà http://www.scienzemfn.unimi.it, sezione TEST INGRESSO, e nel bando per l'ammissione (http://www.unimi.it/corsi_istituti/corsiConTest.jsp).
Erasmus is a grant that finances the study abroad experience at a partner university, as part of bilateral agreements with selected universities and research centers in many foreign countries. When abroad, students attend courses, carry out research activities or do an internship.
In order to get these grants, students must contact a professor of this program who will scientifically supervise the exchange. Every topic related to this program is suitable. Two types of grants are available:
Erasmus+, for attending courses and carry out research activities (refer to the call in the Geological Sciences area).
Erasmus+ Traineeship, exclusively for internships.
For Erasmus+, see the call on the Geology area in the unimi.it website. Among other agreements, please have a look at the undergraduate and graduate courses offered by TEI, Technological Educational Institute, Atene (Grecia), who has a special agreement with this program.
The call for Erasmus+ Traineeship is published on the unimi.it website for all programs. In the recent past, Traneeship partners were: Cergy-Pontoise (France), Poitiers (France), Santiago de Compostela (Spain) and Ghent (Belgium). Anyway, new agreements with other universities or research centers can be signed if a professor of this program has some scientific collaboration with them. Apart from courses and exams, any activity carried out at the abroad institution is worth 3 credits (CFU) per month.
The "learning agreement" between professors at the home and abroad institution will define the activities the student will carry out. This document, together with the transcript of the exams and other research activities, will allow for the acknowledgment of such activities by this program.
To attend courses and take exams abroad has many advantages. In addition to being an unconventional experience in a student's life, it offers a big opportunity to practice in the local language. The students will also experience and compare different teaching systems, gaining more flexibility in their studying activities. Finally, the study abroad experience is in some cases a good opportunity to use facilities otherwise not available (for example, special equipment for experiments), work with large research groups on a cosmopolitan scale.
