Programme structure

The Master degree in Materials Science aims to provide a firm grounding in the chemical, physical and technological behaviour of a vast range of materials with emphasis on modern advances in the field.

The course 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.

Theoretical lectures and practical laboratories will be done in lecture halls and laboratories of the departments involved in the course.

The individual interview will be done in English and will consider some general questions aiming to verify the background knowledge of the applicant.

List of topics that we assume known by the applicants.

  • Fundamental knowledge of quantum mechanics
  • Fundamental knowledge of the chemical bond and electronic structure in molecules and solids.
  • Thermodynamics
  • Elements of crystallography
  • Fundamental knowledge of the major class of materials and their properties (thermophysical, mechanical, electronic, optical and magnetic): polymers, ceramics, semiconductors, metals.
  • Knowledge of basic informatic tools (word processing, spreadsheets, presentations)
  • Active and passive knowledge of scientific English

These topics can be found (at the appropriate level) in the following suggested textbooks.

Open day

Live events dedicated to the presentation of the several Study Courses. Visit the online Open Day calendar for the Master Degree Courses. 

The event 2022 was held  the last 12th of May.
Now watch the video - presentations about the Master's Degree in  Materials Science 2022:

1) About Master's degree in Chemistry at Unito
2) About Master's Degree in Materials Sciences

The activity of orientation is carried out at different levels:

  • Local level (Atheneaum)
    A collective orienting is done for the students of the 2nd and 3rd year of Bachelor in "Scienza e Tecnologia dei Materiali" and for those similar (Chemistry, Chemical technology and Physics). During this activity the academic courses of the Master's degree in Material Science, the available thesis anf the work opportunities are presented.

  • International level
    As the Master's Degree is partner of an Erasmus Mundus Programme (MaMaSELF), it benefits of all the international advertisements opportunities provided by the European Union, by Ambassies and Consolates of Italy, France and Germany in  the World and in all the national Erasmus Mundus agencies -point of contact italy, CampusFrance and DAAD. This work of International orienting guaranteed in the last 4 years more than 400 applications to the European Master MaMaSELF, where 20 scholarships are provided every year.
