What is Materials Science and what about it in Turin?

“Materials science teaches us what things are made of and why they behave as they do”. This field concerns the whole life of a material, from its synthesis to its first characterization and development. Throughout the courses, students will approach different classes of materials (metals, polymers, metal oxides, carbon-based, hybrid and composites) and will learn their properties in view of potential innovative technological applications.

At the University of Turin, the emphasis of the courses is on the main concepts related to materials synthesis, characterization, simulation, properties, and applications, both from a theoretical and practical point of view. During the courses, the students are encouraged to develop original ideas for creating new materials which satisfy the requirements of society and the world market (i.e. cheap, safe, recyclable, and with minimum impact on the environment). Particularly the courses will introduce students to the environmental and economic impact of materials production and manufacturing, highlighting the importance of materials lifecycle and sustainability in modern society

This Master degree aims to form a materials scientist. He/she should be at the same time a chemist and a physicist. Students will therefore learn the language of both chemistry and physics, as a materials scientist should act as a bridge between these two apparently different, but very close disciplines.

Half of our student intake usually comes from countries other than Italy therefore, enrolment at the Master Degree in Materials Science guarantees a constant multicultural exchange, an important added value in an increasingly globalized world. The Master concludes with an individual research project carried out during an internship period at an academic or external/industrial research laboratory and the elaboration and discussion of a final thesis.

At the end of the Master degree, a materials scientist will then know how to prepare a material starting from its building block, how to characterize it, and eventually how to model its properties, allowing the knowledge transfer to the engineer and technologist. If you are curious about the working life after the graduation of our former students, check the careers section.
