Course units

The course units are listed according to the chosen curriculum



The curriculum includes an internship of 100 hours (4 credits) to be completed before starting the thesis and undertaken under the supervision of a professor chosen by the student among the ones of the hosting department of the second cycle degree programme or also of other university departments or research institutes. During the internship students acquire the skills necessary for the critical analysis of research proposals and results and to tackle experimental study on a topic in chemistry that will be developed during the thesis preparation. Specifically, at the end of this activity students will be able to:
- carry out bibliographical research,
- focus on the topic chosen within a broader context,
- make working proposals, both from an experimental and theoretical point of view, to increase knowledge on the topic under consideration.

Extra-curricular activities

Vocational advisory activities are organised to assist students in choosing their curriculum and to present the research projects of the groups where it is possible to carry out the research work for the thesis. In addition, cycles of conferences are organised annually, often with speakers from abroad, on the latest topics in the area of photochemistry and molecular materials.

International mobility

Students are offered a series of opportunities of carrying out exchanges programs due to the various existing agreements with foreign universities.For information about the programs you can contact:
