Corso di Functional and sustainable materials - Università degli Studi di Parma

Functional and Sustainable Materials is an interdisciplinary M.Sc. program in Materials Science that aims at developing a broad training in the chemistry and physics of materials with a special emphasis on their application in the circular economy. 

This program was built on decades of successful collaboration between the physicists and chemists at the University of Parma in both research and education. The success of this collaboration is demonstrated by the prestigious recognition of the Department of Chemistry, Life Sciences and Environmental Sustainability with two back-to-back “Department of Excellence” awards which have support our research and education activities with state-of-the-art scientific infrastructure and scholarships to attract motivated students.

The goal of this program is to create professionals that understand the challenges of building a circular economy from its physical and chemical roots up to their application in the real world. To do so, our courses strive to constantly show in a laboratory setting the reality of the concepts shown in class. Laboratory courses will teach our students not just how to create materials but how to analyze data, design experiments, formulate hypotheses with the goal of both improve performances and create knowledge.

The program organizers are proud of the collaboration with our engineering, life sciences and earth sciences colleagues, with whom we have designed a portfolio of optional courses that will suit any students’ personal interests.

We are looking forward to have you join us!
