Chemistry

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Chemistry is a category of physical science that deals with the structure, composition, and various properties of matter. Some topics which chemistry aims to cover include the formation of chemical bonds, properties of atoms, and the intermolecular forces responsible for giving matter its unique properties.

A Masters degree in Chemical Engineering is key to professional success in several modern and innovative industrial sectors. [+]

A Masters degree in Chemical Engineering is key to professional success in several modern and innovative industrial sectors. Smart materials, sustainable processes for energy production, industrial biotechnologies, and advanced pharmaceutical applications are only some of the examples of sectors where the expertise of chemical engineers is sought and highly rewarded. Furthermore, the conventional world-players as the chemical and Oil&Gas field are facing a context of increasing innovation and internationalization, thus requiring global competences and higher qualifications of the chemical engineers recruited. The STEM (Sustainable Technologies and biotechnologies for Energy and Materials) international curriculum of the Masters in Chemical and Process Engineering was built to meet these needs. The course is a two-years Master “second cycle Degree” officially recognized under the “Bologna Process”, requiring the students to obtain 120 ECTS. The program is two years in duration and is divided into four terms. In the first year, courses are mainly oriented to address basic issues of the Master’s studies: advanced thermodynamics and transport phenomena, introduction to basic design, and introduction to industrial safety. In the second year, both compulsory and elective courses are offered on specialized topics, such as materials, energy and environmental processes and industrial biotechnologies. The program is entirely taught in English, and requires the student a proficient use of the English language. At the end of the program, a degree titled "Master in Chemical Engineering" (Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria Chimica, Classe LM-22) is awarded and is valid under Italian law. A Dual Degree Agreement is active with Columbia University in the City of New York (USA). Applicants, upon completing successfully the program, will obtain both the Laurea Magistrale from Bologna University and the Master of Science in Chemical Engineering from Columbia University. Graduates of the program will have the training to go on to work in numerous fields, including the conventional chemical and process industry (petrochemical, specialty chemicals, pharmaceutical), the wide-spread energy industrial sectors (up-stream and down-stream Oil&Gas, energy generation, green energy production), and many other specific sectors (material production, food technologies, industrial biotechnologies, etc.). Completion of the STEM Masters degree can also lead to entering PhD. level studies. Option on Off-Shore and Oil&Gas Engineering Students enrolled in the STEM curriculum will have the option to select in the second year courses dedicated to off-shore engineering and oil&gas technologies, with a specific focus on up-stream and mid-stream applications. The courses will be held in the Ravenna Campus, and the content has been strongly oriented to the obtainment of the professional skills necessary to operate in the Oil&Gas sector.

Master's Degrees in Chemistry. The Master's Programme in Toxicology gives students an in-depth knowledge of the broad and interdisciplinary toxicological field. The programme prepares students for either a research or professional career and provides a solid platform for doctoral studies in toxicology or work in risk/safety assessment-related areas in the public sector or industry. Programme presentation The Master's Programme in Toxicology was one of the first toxicology programmes in the world. The programme is unique in its two-year cohesive focus on toxicology and human health. The programme utilises its close connection to high-quality research and risk assessment work at the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM) - the main centre for education and training in toxicology and health risk assessment in Sweden, and collaborates with pharmaceutical and chemical industries, national authorities (for example the Swedish Chemicals Agency and the Swedish National Food Administration), Swetox and the Swedish Poison Information Centre, as well as with scientists at other departments both within and outside KI. The programme includes principles in toxicology, toxicokinetics, target organ toxicity, biochemical and molecular toxicological methods, mechanisms of toxicity and mode of action, toxicity testing, laboratory animal science, alternative methods to animal testing, histopathology, statistics, epidemiology, and health risk assessment. This first part of the programme provides students with a general, advanced toxicological grounding, upon which they then base a personal line of inquiry to probe more deeply into experimental research or risk/safety assessment by taking elective and/or project courses. Programme outline *might be subject to changes Semester 1 Principles of toxicology Toxicokinetics Target organ toxicology Histopathology and clinical pathology Semester 2 Laboratory animal science Applications of methods in toxicological research Health risk assessment Semester 3 Global toxicology in a sustainable society Regulatory toxicity testing Elective courses Semester 3 and 4 Degree project in toxicology or Project work or elective courses Degree project in toxicology Career opportunities The programme provides a solid foundation for a career in toxicology as either a doctoral researcher or a risk/safety assessor in the public or private sector in Sweden or abroad.
