Science and Technology for Studying and Preserving the Cultural Heritage and Information Storage Media
People who get this bachelor's degree have specific methodological, scientific, and technological knowledge needed for:
- evaluating the state of preservation of cultural heritage, its morphological-structural characteristics, and the properties of its constituting materials;
- the identification, risks' evaluation, diagnosis and rescuing actions for avoiding deterioration processes in cultural heritage with respect to archaeological sites, historical-artistic artifacts, museum collections, information storage media and related contents;
- restoring of information storage media and related contents;
- taking the scientific-technological leadership of institutions and professional organizations devoted to the preservation, management, and maintenance of cultural heritage, and also of private professional organizations devoted to conservative restoration and environmental rescuing;
- being able to exchange professional oral and written information in at least a couple of European languages (tipically italian and english);
- doing operative actions for the communication, preservation, fruition, and management of information concerning cultural heritage;
- working in the frame of a team, with a high level of autonomy, easily joining a working environment.
A robust basic scientific education is coupled to this specialistic qualification, so that students acquire fundamental scientific and professional methodologies.
Admission to the Degree Programme in Science and Technology for Studying and Preserving the Cultural Heritage and Information Storage Media is open, with a mandatory non-selective test prior to enrolment.
Candidates will have to sit for the TOLC - CISIA Online Test at the University of Milan or any other member university of CISIA (inter-university consortium for integrated access systems). You can register to the TOLC test on the CISIA website (www.cisiaonline.it).
The TOLC tests providing access to the Degree Programme in Science and Technology for Studying and Preserving the Cultural Heritage and Information Storage Media are TOLC-S and TOLC-B.
Only after taking one of these tests, will you be able to enrol, WHATEVER THE RESULT:
- TOLC-S, divided into 4 sections: Basic mathematics (20 questions - 50 minutes), Reasoning and problems (10 questions - 20 minutes), Reading comprehension (10 questions - 20 minutes), Basic sciences (10 questions - 20 minutes).
- TOLC-B divided into 4 sections: Basic mathematics (20 questions - 50 minutes), Biology (10 questions - 20 minutes), Physics (10 questions - 20 minutes), Chemistry (10 questions - 20 minutes).
Each question has 5 answer options, of which only one is correct. Score: correct answer+1, wrong answer -0.25, no answer 0.
Students who have not achieved at least 10 points in the Mathematics module will have to fulfil additional learning requirements (OFA).
Each TOLC test includes an additional English section, consisting of 30 questions to be answered in 15 minutes. This section does not count toward the overall test score.
Remedial activities and tests: https://conservazionebeniculturali.cdl.unimi.it/it/studiare/le-matricole
Students with additional learning requirements will have to carry out remedial activities in the period October-December, and then take a test to prove they have filled their gaps. Otherwise, they will not be able to take any second-year or optional exams before passing the Mathematics exam.

Enrolment procedures and deadlines will be provided in the call for applications published on the University website at https://www.unimi.it/en/study/enrolment.
In order to get these grants, students must contact a professor of this program who will scientifically supervise the exchange. Every topic related to this program is suitable. Two types of grants are available:
Erasmus+, for attending courses and carry out research activities (refer to the call in the Geological Sciences area).
Erasmus+ Traineeship, exclusively for internships.
For Erasmus+, see the call on the Geology area in the unimi.it website. Among other agreements, please have a look at the undergraduate and graduate courses offered by TEI, Technological Educational Institute, Atene (Grecia), who has a special agreement with this program.
The call for Erasmus+ Traineeship is published on the unimi.it website for all programs. In the recent past, Traneeship partners were: Cergy-Pontoise (France), Poitiers (France), Santiago de Compostela (Spain) and Ghent (Belgium). Anyway, new agreements with other universities or research centers can be signed if a professor of this program has some scientific collaboration with them. Apart from courses and exams, any activity carried out at the abroad institution is worth 3 credits (CFU) per month.
The "learning agreement" between professors at the home and abroad institution will define the activities the student will carry out. This document, together with the transcript of the exams and other research activities, will allow for the acknowledgment of such activities by this program.
To attend courses and take exams abroad has many advantages. In addition to being an unconventional experience in a student's life, it offers a big opportunity to practice in the local language. The students will also experience and compare different teaching systems, gaining more flexibility in their studying activities. Finally, the study abroad experience is in some cases a good opportunity to use facilities otherwise not available (for example, special equipment for experiments), work with large research groups on a cosmopolitan scale.
Highly recommended, not mandatory
