First cycle diploma ( BA, Ungergraduate diploma)
In order to enroll in a second-cycle degree programme without a quota of places, you shall possess a first-cycle degree (i.e. bachelor’s degree) gained after at least 3 years of university education, you shall also meet some specific admission requirements and possess an adequate personal knowledge in the following subjects: Materials Science, Chemistry, Physics or Industrial Engineering. In the case of foreign degree certificates, the degree must be recognised as equivalent to an Italian Bachelor’s Degree according to Italian legislation. Knowledge of English is strictly required and applicants are also expected to have basic Information Technology (IT) skills (e.g. text elaboration, use of datasheets, etc.). Applicants will be asked to attend an interview before their place on the Master’s course can be confirmed. This is in order to verify that they possess the required level of knowledge. A list of subjects and topics that may be tested during the interview is given below: Basic Mathematics and Numerical AnalysisFunctions of one and more variables Integrals of functions of one and more variables First and second order differential equations Principles of numerical analysis and linear algebra
General Physics:Mechanics Heat Waves Electricity Magnetism
Solid State Physics:Crystal structure Reciprocal lattice Phonons Thermal properties of phonons Free electron Fermi gas Bloch theorem Energy bands Effective mass
Basic Quantum Mechanics Basic General Chemistry:Inorganic Chemistry Organic Chemistry
Analytical Chemistry:Chromatography Mass Spectrometry Atomic absorption and atomic emission spectroscopy
Physical Chemistry:Chemical Bond Thermodynamics and Kinetics Atomic and Molecular structures Spectroscopy (vibrational, electronic) Diffraction Basics of Metallic, Ceramic, and Polymeric Materials: Phase diagrams and phase transformations Microstructures Defects Mechanical properties Processing Basics of Metallic, Ceramic, and Polymeric Materials: Phase diagrams and phase transformations Microstructures Defects Mechanical properties Processing Basics of Metallic, Ceramic, and Polymeric Materials: Phase diagrams and phase transformations Microstructures Defects Mechanical properties Processing Registration for the Master’s Degree in Materials Science is subject to successful completion of the interview aimed at verifying the adequacy of personal preparation. The interview will be made via Skype.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: Italian / English / French / Spanish.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
These documents shall be written or translated in one of the following languages: Italian, English, French, Spanish. If the document is issued in a different language from those listed above, you will have to upload both the original document and its certified translation.
You must take the original entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
Your knowledge of english language will be verified during the admission interview.
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
The Master’s degree in Materials Science aims to provide a firm grounding in the chemical, physical and technological behaviour of a vast range of materials with emphasis on modern advances in the field. Students are trained to understand the properties of materials in current use and encouraged to develop original ideas for creating new materials which satisfy the requirements of society and world markets (i.e. cheap, safe, recyclable and with minimum negative impact on the environment). The course delivers advanced and integrated theoretical and practical training across the following interdisciplinary areas: chemistry and physics of solids, materials production, manufacturing and testing, with special attention to the characterization and modelling of material structures and properties. All lectures and examinations for the Master’s degree are conducted in English. If you want to learn more about this Master’s degree, click here
