Master Degree in Chemical Sciences and Technologies


The Master's Degree in Chemical Sciences and Technologies belongs to the Class of Degrees in Chemical Sciences (LM-54), has a duration of two years and involves the acquisition of 120 university credits (UC) for the achievement of the degree. There are 11 exams that provide for the acquisition of 78 UC. The remaining credits will be acquired through other educational activities such as the thesis (30 UC), seminars (1 UC) and the final exam (11 UC). Indicatively, the scheduled examinations are 9 in the first year and 2 in the second year. The final experimental activity (thesis and final exam: 41 CFU), will allow the student to acquire high-level skills and knowledge in modern sectors of Chemistry, such as the Chemistry of Materials and Advanced Technologies, the Environmental Chemistry and Chemistry of Biotechnology and Human Health.

The Master’s Degree is open access. To be admitted to the Master's Degree, students must have a Bachelor's degree or a three-year University Diploma, or a qualification obtained abroad, recognized as suitable. In particular, graduates of the MMFF NN School of Science and of the School of Engineering and Graduate Studies of any University can be admitted to the Master's Degree in Chemical Sciences and Technologies, demonstrating that they possess the necessary skills to successfully follow their studies. For this purpose, an assessment interview on chemical knowledge (analytical, organic, inorganic, physical) is provided, before the start of the teaching activities; the different dates and modalities of the interviews will be disseminated with special notices on the website of the Degree Course. Some of the courses are taught in English (see Master's Degree Regulation) and for this reason, it is desirable that students enrolling in the Master's Degree have a knowledge of English language at B2 level or higher.

At the end of the studies, the Master's Degree in Chemical Sciences and Technologies is awarded.

The title allows access to PhD courses. The Master's degree is accredited by Chemistry Euromaster®. Graduates in Chemical Science and Technology have the possibility to enroll in section A of the professional register of Italian Chemists, after passing the State Exam.

The Master's Degree aims to provide students with a solid basic cultural preparation in the various chemical fields and a high mastery of methods and scientific content in the innovative aspects of modern chemistry regarding the study of complex systems and applications in advanced fields of research and production.

The Master's Degree, for the A.A. 2018-2019, is articulated in a single path.

On the basis of the data reported in the XIX AlmaLaurea Survey, after one year from the date of degree obtainment the graduate students of the course reported an employment rate of 75% (compared to a national average of 70%). 90% of the students enrolled in the academic year 2014/15 (University data) graduated within two or three years after the enrollment. This compares to a national average of 84% (Anagrafe Nazionale degli Studenti).
