Why Chemical Sciences?

Chemistry is part of the present and future of technology research. All the latest application topics, from energy conservation to nanotechnology, from new higher-performance drugs to environmental monitoring, now require a team of experts working together. Among them, the figure of the chemist, an expert in modern investigative techniques and accustomed to dealing with new issues, plays a key role.

The curricula offered by the Genoa campus allow for in-depth study of the field of interest even on frontier topics. The faculty members of the curricula pursue research related to their teachings and of strong experimental application impact.

Many master's theses are carried out in collaboration with foreign universities or research institutions, with internship periods (Erasmus Placement) to allow in-depth scientific insights or to learn new experimental techniques.

What will you study

The Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Sciences is structured to enable the student to acquire the theoretical concepts and experimental skills of the disciplines of chemistry.

The course is divided into three curricula:

A curriculum strongly hinged on the fundamental and applied aspects of analytical chemistry. Innovative analytical methods for the study of trace elements, evaluation of pollutants in water and soil, determination of chemical compounds in seawater.

competencies of materials and process chemistry, combined with solid knowledge of physical chemistry, form the basis of this curriculum. It is aimed at students interested in modern aspects of fundamental and applied research: formulation and study of functional properties of new materials and composites, application, theoretical foundations, and experimental characterizations of major application materials.

organic chemistry with its various in-depth topics-synthesis of new compounds for biological applications, formulation of pharmacologically active ingredients, organic molecules for photonic materials, and optoelectronics-is the driving force behind this curriculum.

Each curriculum has a series of characterizing and related-integrative teachings, specific to be able to gain extensive knowledge in that field.
