The doctorate in Chemical Science lasts three years and is divided into 3 curriculums:
· CHEMISTRY AND ENVIRONMENT
· CHEMISTRY AND MATERIALS
· CHEMISTRY OF BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS
Students who have a five year degree, master’s degree or equivalent degree can apply to the Ph.D. program.
Every year the following educational activities are required:
· ATTENDANCE TO THE COURSES OF ADVANCED CHEMISTRY OFFERED AT THE UNIVERSITA’ DEGLI STUDI DI MILANO-BICOCCA.
· RESEARCH ACTIVITY WITH THE SUPPORT OF A TUTOR
· SEMINARS HELD BY HIGHLY QUALIFIED ITALIAN AND FOREIGN PROFESSORS
· PARTICIPATION IN SCHOOLS AND/OR A SERIES OF COURSES ON SUBJECTS INHERENT TO THE
60 credits (Cfu) should be earned per year, of which 40 are dedicated to research activity, 10 for high level training (courses, international schools, elaboration of scientific articles as indicated by the tutor), 5 for interdisciplinary activity inside the School of the Doctorate in Science.
Furthermore, training or research periods outside the Università degl Studi di Milano Bicocca are possible:
· abroad: 12 MONTHS MAXIMUM
· at other universities: 6 MONTHS MAXIMUM
· at research organizations or institutions: 6 MONTHS MAXIMUM
At the conclusion of the three years the student will present research in a written dissertation in English, which will be discussed before a specifically nominated commission. Following a positive result of the elaboration and presentation, the student will receive the diploma of Doctorate in Chemical Science.
GENERAL SUBJECTS AND ACTIVATED RESEARCH PROGRAMS
CURRICULM: CHEMISTRY AND ENVIRONMENT
The research programs in this curriculum are the result of an in depth analysis of the international and Italian situation and an evaluation of the contribution that Chemical Sciences can make to the prevention and solutions of particularly relevant environmental problems. The direction is towards sustainable development and environmentally sustainable technologies. The strategic choices of the research programs have been designed on the basis of “environmental chemistry priorities”, as identified and recognized by national, European and international Agencies and Organizations.
CURRICULUM: CHEMISTRY AND MATERIALS
ORGANIC MATERIALS FOR ADVANCED APPLICATIONS.
CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY OF DEFECTS AND SURFACES
DEVELOPMENT OF INORGANIC MATERIALS FOR ELECTROCHEMICAL APPLICATIONS,
MICRO AND OPTOELCTRONICS
CURRICULUM: CHEMISTRY OF BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS
