Admission requirements and assessment of previously acquired knowledge/competences

The minimum graduate admission requirement is a bachelor's university degree of three years duration or gained through the acquisition of at least 180 ECTS credits or other degree from accredited institutions recognized as equivalent.

Applicants are accepted with Italian or International university degrees which include a suitable number of university credits in fundamental subjects for chemical, materials or process engineering, together with appropriate corresponding grades (applicants with an Italian degree are invited to read the Italian version of course regulation for detailed indications about ideal applicant profile in terms of Italian university credits). Evaluation of suitability of applicants' degree and curriculum is performed by the Master's Committee which decides about their admission to the Program.

The degree program can provide a session for international students and appoint a commission to assess the students' personal competencies and skills, consistent with the competition notice awarding scholarships (scolarships deadline is scheduled in May).

The Degree Programme Board, in order to make students fulfil requirements about personal preparation, in providing admission to the Master might decide to assign obligations in the student's Study Plan, regarding credits which need to be acquired within the freely chosen learning activities (electives).

Admission to the degree programme is subject to the assessment of knowledge and skills in the English language:

· to level B1 for the students of the curricula “Ingegneria di Processo “ and “Ingegneria Alimentare”.

· to level B2 for the students of the curriculum “Sustainable Technologies and biotechnologies for Energy and Materials”.

If no certificate is available the knowledge level will be assessed by the Degree Programme Board.

A certification of English language of at least B2 level (given either by the University Linguistic Centre or by an equivalent certifying body) has to be obtained anyway by the end of the first year of enrollment.

Internship

The School of Engineering and Architecture allows students to perform an internship in order to get credits (CFU) included in the study plan according to the rules set by the degree programmes.
‘Curricular' internship is a learning activity included in the study plan. It can be compulsory or elective, depending on the degree programme, and can be performed both in Universities or other organizations, in Italy or abroad. Some degree programmes allow students to perform internships in preparation for the final thesis.
Graduates within 12 months after graduation are offered the possibility to perform an ‘orientation' internship in order to get a deeper knowledge of the work field.
Further details on the School website page about internships.

International mobility

As part of its educational opportunities, every year the School fosters programmes and international agreements enabling undergraduates and graduates to attend degree programmes , take exams, participate in company internships or research programmes in the most famous European and extra-European universities or other institutions.
Details about opportunities abroad at the International student office.
