Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering
Laurea (BSc) - 2017/2018 a.y.
Industrial and Information Engineering
Mission and goals
The programme aims at preparing experts in materials and nanotechnologies with specific knowledge in the sectors of preparation, transformation and application of materials with particular reference to nanotechnologies. At the end of the educational programme the graduate will be able to select the material and production process for a particular component, bearing in mind the influence subsequent processing may have on the structure and properties of the material itself. Within the study plan certain specific programmes are offered: Surface Processing Engineering, Microstructure and Nanotechnologies, Polymeric Materials Engineering and Technology & Design.
The main professional opportunity for the graduate is in companies and industries in which materials are a main development factor. Some examples are material production, processing and design, surface processing industry, polymeric materials, etc.
Possible further education
Subject to evaluation of their curriculum, graduates in Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering can continue their studies in related fields such as Materials Engineering and Nanotechnologies, Nuclear Engineering and Design & Engineering. With admission always subject to an evaluation, graduates may choose other Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programmes or 1st level Specializing Masters.
