General aims and objectives of the course are the followings:
- To develop in our graduates the qualities needed to become the next generation of high quality chemists operating in chemical research, chemical industry and in the teaching of chemistry
- To make our students realize that chemistry is a fundamental discipline, central to the development of a modern and concerned society
- To provide intellectual stimuli and practical skills for highly determined graduates willing to play leading roles and undertake brilliant careers in the society
In particular, graduates in Industrial Chemistry are expected to gain the following skills:
- The basic knowledge in mathematics and physics to deal with chemical principles and concepts on a scientific basis.
- The ability to understand the practical implications of a wide range of chemical phenomena and to deal with them at the applied level.
- The ability to understand the various aspects of chemical production and its impact on the society.
- The creativity to develop new practical solutions to chemical production-related problems, with particular emphasis on sustainable development and economic benefits.
- The open-mind ed attitude necessary to collaborate with scientists of culturally-related disciplines.
The students with the degree in Industrial Chemistry would be entitled to work in public and private-owned laboratories as highly qualified technicians. They could operate as assistants of more specialized personnel in the development of new products and/or new materials, collaborate in the design and realization of novel protocols for industrial preparations. They are trained for working on a chemical plant, take care of the validation and control of an established process and in the management of logistics issues, with a special attention devoted to the safety of plants, processes and chemicals. They could find positions in chemical industry, for example oil companies, polymer and material industries, and in public agency. They can also apply for Master programmes, preferentially in Industrial Chemistry and Management. On average, ca. 70% of our students do so, after receiving the degree in Industrial Chemistry.
Employment statistics (Almalaurea)

Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.

Access is subject to passing a test (TOLC-S, CISIA OnLine Test, www.cisiaonline.it ) which will give rise to a merit ranking.

Additional learning obligations (OFA)

OFA: Disciplines

Students who do not pass the entrance examination on maths, are assigned additional learning obligations (OFA, Obblighi formativi aggiuntivi) that they must fulfil in accordance with the provisions of the Programme Structure.

OFA: English language

Students must have level B1 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B1 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) Placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December.

Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.

Students enrolled in Indusitrial Chemistry course are encouraged to apply to the Erasmus Plus actions, where various positions are available in 20 European universities. They can earn their credits by following courses and/or by performing part of their experimental thesis abroad. Before leaving, students must submit a Learning Agreement to be approved by the Teaching Board: this approval is mandatory for the acquisitions of the credits.

Mandatory for laboratory courses; highly recommended for other teaching courses

Study plan rules
2 - Nel terzo anno di corso lo studente deve acquisire 12 CFU scegliendo liberamente tra tutti gli insegnamenti attivati dall'Ateneo che risultino funzionali al percorso formativo della LT in Chimica Industriale.
Si consiglia agli studenti di attingere alla lista degli insegnamenti da 6 CFU delle LM in Scienze Chimiche ed in Industrial Chemistry
- The exams of "institutions of mathematics" and "general and Inorganic Chemistry / Laboratory of general and inorganic chemistry" must be taken before the examinations of the 2nd and 3rd year.
- The exams of "General Physics" and "complements of mathematics and numerical calculation" must be taken before the exams of the 3rd year.
- The exams of "Organic Chemistry I" must be carried out before those of "Laboratory of organic chemistry", "biological chemistry" and "Macromolecular Chemistry".
- "Physical Chemistry I" and "Laboratory of physical chemistry "tests must be carried out prior to" industrial Physical Chemistry"
- The exams indicated as the course must be taken before the corresponding examinations indicated as the course.

It is advisable, however, to take the exams of each semester before taking those of the following semesters.
