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 Master's degree in Materials Science from University of Turin 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.
The Master's Degree offers an education in Materials Science based on fundamental knowledge but also informed by strong connections with advanced technology sectors. The emphasis of the course is on the main concepts related to materials synthesis, characterization, simulation, properties and applications, both from a theoretical and practical point of view.
Chemical and physical properties of solids are for their bulk, surface and interface properties; the engineering and production technologies of materials, the characterization and simulation of microstructures, the role of raw materials in manufactured products are taught.
In addition, the Master's introduces students to the environmental and economic impact of materials production and manufacturing highlighting the importance of materials' lifecycle and sustainability in modern society.
The University's Job Placement Service has been established in order to help its students and new graduated (who held their university degree within 12 months) to enter the labour market. The service operates on two levels: through the Job Placement offices in the individual Schools and Departments and through the central Job Placement office at the Students' Rights office.
As a whole, the Job Placement Service serves an intermediary function, at once helping students in their careers choices and in making preliminary contact with companies and helping companies, public bodies and international institutions to find and choose students and recent graduates. The Schools and Departments Job Placement Offices display employment and internship opportunities on websites (university or other) and notice boards and through presentations given by interested companies.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
