Overview

The Bachelor (BSc) course provides a preparation with a strong interdisciplinary character between chemistry and physics, prompted by the most innovative applications of materials in a growing number of advanced technological fields.
In particular, the BSc graduated student will be able to use and develop materials exhibiting specific functionalities. To this respect, the preparation of the BSc student in Materials Science is slightly different from that of the typical BSc student in Materials Engineering, which is more devoted to the learning of productive processes and to the use of materials for mechanical or structural applications.
The training course is organized in two phases. The first phase is devoted to the basic preparation on general chemistry disciplines, inorganic and organic, on physics and on mathematics. The second phase is devoted to the disciplines more specifically linked to materials science, with particular emphasis on quantum physics and chemistry, solid state physics, crystallography and solid structure, solid state chemistry, and to organic chemistry with tutorial elements of biochemistry. In this second phase is concentrated a large fraction of the practical activity in laboratory, which constitutes one of the most relevant pillar in the BSc education of a Materials Science student. A dedicated course on materials science provides an introduction on the most important classes of materials (metals, semiconductors, polymers, glasses, ceramics…) and to the knowledge of specific technologies and production processes.

Career opportunities

The BSc graduate in Materials Science can be employed as a highly qualified technician for companies with high technological level. Materials with specific properties are largely used at industrial level in different fields like microelectronics, mechanical materials, plastic materials, aerospace, optics, and even surface processing for jewelry. In all those fields, the sound knowledge on the chemistry and physics of condensed matter allow the BSc graduate to carry out the task of process management and optimization and of finding innovative solutions to the problems of product development.
