Program Description

If you are interested in nanotechnology, then this program equips you with the knowledge of material science, chemistry and biology that becoming an expert in the design and synthesis of new bio- and nanomaterials requires.

The Science and Technology of Bio and Nanomaterials program pairs traditional lectures and laboratory classes that teach you how to prepare bio- and nanomaterials and to explore their chemical-physical characteristics, properties, methods of preparation and applications.


During your studies, you are given the chance to carry out an internship and learn on the job at research laboratories and companies both in Italy and abroad. 


Thanks to the skills and knowledge you will possess as a graduate, you will be able to work in the technical sectors of companies that produce, market, transform or develop materials either structured or functional bio- and nanomaterials. Possible professional profiles include:

  • Chemist
  • Chemical information management specialist
  • Industrial and commercial consultant
  • Specialized consultant
  • R&D manager
  • Researcher
