The Materials and Production Engineering program from University of Trento is particularly addressed to students who demonstrate a thorough grounding in scientific disciplines (e.g. Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry) and a basic knowledge in Industrial Engineering.


Materials Engineering is the science that enables the synthesis and application of materials in everyday society. Nearly everything we use is made of a material that has been modified or designed by a materials engineer who enables it to perform better than it would do without human intervention. Materials engineers and scientists study the relationship between materials' structure, performance, properties and synthesis, with a view to designing and producing new materials and new applications that meet the needs of society. 

The Materials and Production Engineering program from University of Trento is designed to qualify skilled materials engineers and scientists able to explore the design and testing of materials employing cutting-edge technologies, and to manage and promote the technological innovation at different levels, since the labour market increasingly requires experts not only in the engineering fields, but also in design, production and qualification of traditional and advanced materials.


Career opportunities span from innovation and development of production, advanced planning and programming, management of complex systems, both as self-employment professionals and in manufacturing and services companies, as well as in public authorities.

Materials engineers may be employed in: chemical, pharmaceutical and processing industries; companies active in the production, transformation, transportation and storage of substances and materials; industrial laboratories; public administration offices for environment and safety management.

With the MS in Materials Engineering graduates will also be able to work as scientists, engineers or managers in many different industries, including R&D Departments of public and private institutions. Graduates may pursue a PhD in Trento or at international level.
