Industrial Chemistry is the branch of Chemistry that takes advantage of specific chemical knowledge to study and develop procedures aimed at transforming raw materials into products that are of benefit to humankind.
The second-level degree in Industrial Chemistry at the University of Parma consists of theoretical and practical courses in which the most advanced aspects of the chemical industry are tackled. Among others, the most prominent one is the study of energy-efficient and highly selective synthesis procedures, focused on reducing environmental impact and obtaining high-quality products for a variety of sectors.
This program consists of 11 compulsory subjects aimed at developing both theoretical and experimental skills (each one with a final exam to assess the learning outcomes), one free-choice course, and a final laboratory traineeship lasting at least six months.
The second-level Degree’s Programme in Industrial Chemistry prepares the graduates for a professional career in the field of Industrial Chemistry, with possible employment in R&D laboratories, including procedure control, environment safety, security, and protection.
In addition, the graduates are also prepared for the liberal profession, especially as consultants, as well as to continue their studies to the Ph.D. level, especially in the field of chemical sciences and applied chemistry.
A Double Degree program is available with Chemical Technology at Twente University (NL).
