More information



The Degree Course in “Chimica” aims to provide the graduate with a sound basic training open to both the continuation of studies through a Master’s Degree, with the purpose of achieving excellence, and entry into the labor market.
The cultural profile is characterized by a broad basis in mathematics and physics, as an indispensable support for all subsequent investigations in chemical disciplines.
The four chemical disciplines (Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, General and Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry) are organized into two annual courses of theoretical classes, each of which is in turn complemented by laboratory exercises, in order to ensure graduates have a good level of experimental skills and confidence with the chemical methodologies, instruments and problems of the chemical laboratory.
In the laboratory courses, wide space is given to the formation of professionalism that can be directly spent on the labor market in positions such as graduate-laboratory technicians in analysis or quality control, graduate-laboratory researchers and developers of products or processes, product technicians or customer service workers, etc.
The study plan allows both the continuation of university education with enrollment in a Master’s Degree, or entry into the labour market.
Students who do not intend to continue their studies have the opportunity to broaden their professional experience by completing an internship entirely with institutions or companies outside the academic world.
