Bachelor Degree Courses
Materials Science and Nanotechnology
The Bachelor Degree Course in Materials Science and Nanotechnology, activated in a.y. 2023-2024, is a new and profoundly revised course from the Bachelor of Science in Materials Science (no longer provided since a.y. 2023-2024). With a solid cultural and methodological background grounded in knowledge in both the physical and chemical disciplines, this course teaches students to understand the relationships between structure and properties of materials and to use experimental and theoretical skills to analyze characteristics and functionality of various classes of materials. As a result of the interdisciplinary preparation and skills acquired, the graduate in Materials Science and Nanotechnology will be able to perform functions related to the management and optimization of production and commercialization processes of materials and devices, mainly in the field of ceramic materials, polymers, semiconductors, composites and in general materials with functional properties.
***activated in a.y. 2023-2024***
The Bachelor Degree Course in Materials Science, providing basic scientific knowledge and knowledge about innovative processes and technologies, aims at forming graduates able to integrate themselves into productive or research realities in which two main problems are addressed: the improvement of the performance of existing materials (polymers, ceramics, glass, metals, composites, semiconductors) and the development of new materials for devices for the storage and supply of electricity and for sensors and detectors to be used in instrumental and industrial applications.

Chemical Science and Technology
The Bachelor Degree Course in Chemical Sciences and Technologies belongs to the Class L-27 - Chemical Sciences and Technologies and has a duration of three years. The Course represents the first university training cycle and aims to ensure the student an adequate mastery of basic scientific methods and contents, as well as the acquisition of specific professional knowledge. The Degree Course foresees a methodological and professional path differentiating in the program of the third year. The two paths have different teaching activities.
At the end of the studies the academic qualification of Doctor of Chemical Sciences and Technologies is conferred and, in the case of appropriately constructed study plans, the European Chemistry Eurobachelor® title.
Optics and Optometry
The Bachelor Degree Course in Optics and Optometry is a three-year course strongly oriented towards the profession of optometrist. The main objective is therefore providing the students with a basic knowledge in physics and chemistry, which can be a proper background for more technical subjects in the fields of optics, optometry, and contact lenses. The teaching organization of the course has been set with professional associations as consultants; several professors teaching the technical subjects come from those associations and work as optometrists.
