Admission requirements and assessment of previously acquired knowledge/competences

To be accepted on this degree programme you need to have a five-year secondary school diploma or equivalent qualification obtained abroad, or a four-year secondary school diploma and diploma for the relative supplementary year, or, where no longer active (e.g. teaching high school), will be assigned additional learning credits.
You also need the following learning background: good ability to reason logically as well as to use the main methods of elementary mathematics in application to common situations occurring in the field of experimental science.
This is a restricted-access degree programme for which a ranking list will be formed according to the results of an access test which all students must sit. The procedure and criteria of the access test, and the pass-mark giving access without any additional learning requirements (known as OFAs) will be outlined in the Call for applications.
Those below the pass-mark will be admitted to the Degree Programme until the scheduled number is reached, but subjected to an OFA. The OFA must be fulfilled during the first year of the programme and within the deadline set by the University.
Such an OFA will be deemed to have been fulfilled if you:
a. pass the access test when next held, or
b. pass the Maths with Practical Work exam, or General and Inorganic Chemistry with Laboratory, as stipulated by the Degree Programme Board in relation to the specific OFA, or
c. pass the exam at the end of maths tutoring, if that is scheduled in your enrolment academic year.
If a student so requests, and the Degree Programme Board upholds the claim, the OFA may be taken as fulfilled if the student can set towards it educational credits (not less than two credits) gained as part of the MIUR Scientific Degree Plan or other equivalent official training scheme, before enrolling for the Degree Programme.
Students who fail to pass the OFA by the deadline will enrol next academic year to repeat the first year and in the course of that year will have to go through the OFA procedure again.
Students who already have a degree or university diploma, or who enrol in the restricted-access degree programme by a switch from another Bologna University degree programme or transfer from another university, must nonetheless sit the admission test abiding by the rules governing it. Foreign students may enrol in the degree programme up to the maximum number stipulated in the Call.


Programme profile

The specific job-oriented objectives of the Degree in Industrial Chemistry are to produce graduates who possess:
- chemical and technological expertise that may be used in the explicit sector of industrial chemical manufacturing. They will be familiar with the reactions and processes through from the laboratory to the production phase, as well as in all manufacturing and service sectors that require knowledge of products and materials, their properties and how to apply them;
- enough know-how to interact with professionals trained in scientifically connected subjects involved in producing, manipulating, applying and monitoring chemical products and employing materials (devising methods of synthesis, optimization and monitoring of processes, safety procedures, environmental compatibility, energy saving and recycling, economic aspects of manufacturing, quality control, properties of materials);
- in-depth knowledge and experience of the experimental methods and laboratory techniques needed in research, analysis and monitoring laboratories;
- the skills (including ICT methods) needed to find, work up and present the results of experimental and bibliographical research, technical data, and information pertaining to copyright;
- a solid enough basic scientific background to go on to relevant second-cycle degrees or first-level University Masters.
