Master Degree in Materials Science offered by the Department of Materials Science at the University of Milano-Bicocca is a 2-year study program aimed at providing advanced knowledge on chemistry and physics of materials, along with modelling approaches and experimentaltechniques of materials characterization, with practical application in experimental laboratories.
The students learn about the interpretation and the design of function vs. structure relationships in a wide class of materials, providing an under-lying basis for understanding principles, applications and entrepreneurial aspects of nanotechnology. In order to allow for an individual specialization, the program provides a broad choice of courses on specific classes of materials and their function-related structures. Besides technical knowledge, the program also focusses on acquiring competencies related to research skills and scientific communication.
Finally, the theoretical knowledge is applied and enhanced through an internship and Master thesis, which are carried out within a network of collaborations involving research groups and industrial partners. Overall, the program endeavors to create graduates with a multi-disciplinary approach in developing new pathways for research and technology innovation, with a specific view to integrate scientific and ethical perspective to the sustainability of processes and technologies in the field of material development.
Welche Ziele verfolgt der Kurs?: New materials determine the performance, efficiency, quality and sustainability of products and processes in all modern industries and application areas. With a Master in Materials Science, graduates can either directly work in industry or can further specialize by carrying out a PhD.
