What does it train you for?
The BSc in Chemistry program is exploited in 3 years for a total of 180 credit and provides:
- basic knowledge of chemistry required for professional activities where scientific methods and technologies need to be applied also through the use of specific equipment;
- a solid basic theoretical knowledge of the matter, fundamentals of chemistry, chemical processes and phenomena;
- a thorough training in chemical laboratories (general, inorganic, organic, analytical, and physical chemistry) acquiring a variety of experimental skills;
- a well-defined level of independence in the chemical workplace, from industry to analytical and research labs in the fields of green and sustainable chemistry, synthesis and characterization of new materials and bioactive compounds, environmental chemistry, health, nutrition, renewable energy, preservation of cultural heritage.
What do you learn?
Besides fundamentals of Maths and Physics, Chemistry students will learn about the fundamental laws of thermodynamics, basic principles of general chemistry (chemical equilibria and chemical kinetics), properties and reactivity of the chemical elements, relationships between molecular properties and macroscopic features, instrumental methods for chemical analyses, chemical nomenclature of organic and inorganic compounds, physical, chemical and spectroscopic properties of classes of organic and inorganic compounds, chirality, aromaticity, properties and functions of biomolecules. Additionally, through the practice sessions in the teaching laboratories, Chemistry students will benefit from an extensive training-by-doing program to resolve problems of real physical and chemical systems, perform stoichiometrical calculations to apply the quantitative laws of chemistry, perform operations in chemical laboratory in order to prepare, isolate and characterize chemical compounds, perform experiments in the fields of general chemistry, inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry (from sampling to reporting), organic chemistry and physical chemistry, and to obtain structural information from instrumental analysis and spectroscopic investigation, elucidate reaction mechanisms through experimental and computational tools.
