This English-taught programme trains you as an expert in cultural heritage conservation by applying an interdisciplinary approach that incorporates the study of chemistry, physics, biology, computer science and geology.
The Conservation Science and Technology for Cultural Heritage programme at Ca' Foscari University of Venice prepares you to use modern restoration and conservation technologies as well as design new ones, and equips you with the knowledge and experience you need to plan and execute prevention and maintenance projects and to study artefacts in a conservational context.
Since the study programme emphasises hands-on experience, you will get to practice what you are learning in a city that is exceptionally rich with artistic and cultural heritage.
