The course in brief


The Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry and Chemical Technology aims to provide a broad and balanced knowledge of all the main areas of Chemistry and, above all, the general foundations that will allow profitable access to master's degrees in chemistry and, to a lesser extent, access to the world of work.

Most of the credits are in chemistry, but there are also basic or related teachings in other disciplines (mathematics, physics, biology, engineering). The degree is the only one activated in Genoa in the L-27 class and gives debt-free access to 3 Master's Degree Courses activated at the University: Industrial Chemistry, Chemical Sciences and Materials Science and Technology.

Learning by doing

The degree program includes several theoretical-practical teachings, which involve many hours of laboratory exercises. In addition, there is a practical internship in the third year, which can also be done at outside companies.

Professional outlets

More than 90 percent of students who graduate with a degree in Chemistry and Chemical Technology go on to pursue a master's degree in Industrial Chemistry or Chemical Sciences. These two master's degree programs allow for employment in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, engineering, electronics and general manufacturing industries, and in public and private analytical or research laboratories.

What you will learn

matematica e fisica

Gli elementi di matematica e di fisica essenziali per la comprensione della Chimica (30 CFU, tutti al primo anno)

chimica generale e inorganica

le basi della chimica e la struttura e reattività delle sostanze inorganiche

chimica fisica

le leggi fisiche che sottostanno ai processi chimici e le metodologie per la determinazione di parametri quantitativi termodinamici e cinetici

chimica organica

struttura, proprietà e reattività delle sostanze organiche

chimica analitica

le tecniche per l'analisi quantitativa delle sostanze chimiche

chimica industriale e impianti chimici

le basi dei processi chimici, dei polimeri e della chimica ambientale


The degree program is organized into two curricula that differ in the third year:

  • Chemistry: fundamentally oriented to the continuation of studies with the Master's Degree in Chemical Sciences, it allows, in addition to the acquisition of the fundamentals of Chemistry, an in-depth study in the areas of physical, analytical, inorganic and organic chemistry.
  • Chemical Technology: basically oriented to the continuation of studies with the Master's Degree in Industrial Chemistry, it allows, in addition to the acquisition of the basics of Chemistry, a deepening in the areas of polymer chemistry, environmental chemistry or chemical processes.

The two curricula share most of the educational activities, corresponding to 132 CFU - basically the first two years plus 10 CFU in the third year. In fact, the first two years are completely in common and the choice between the two curricula is made when filling out the study plan for the third year.

The degree program includes laboratory activities for about 21-24 cfu (depending on the curriculum) and a curricular internship in-house or at external institutions.
