Bachelor of Science
The Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree (three years) joins education in basic science (physics, mathematics, chemistry, informatics) and in engineering (electronics, mechanics, automation, energy, etc).
The course ends with an internship in a company to favor future immediate employment, or with a laboratory activity to favor experimental training in view of a Master of Science future education. The project gives particular attention to an experimental application-oriented approach, with laboratory training included in most courses.
The BSc gives access to both Information and Industrial Engineering classes, the choice being due at the beginning of the third year:
Master of Science
The Bachelor of Science is followed by a corresponding Master of Science (MSc) degree (two years). The course targets advanced research and technological innovation and is configured so as to attract young graduates with a good basic preparation and highly motivated in science and technology and to bring them to a high professional profile and to a role of innovation engineers with deep problem solving capabilities and wide interdisciplinary knowledge.
Thanks to the wide spectrum of knowledge acquired, the graduate will be ready to undertake roles of responsibility and team leadership in high-tech companies and industries or to undertake a career in Research and development.
Two main curricula are designed that focus slightly different aspects, both of great relevance in terms of basic knowledge and application potentials in different engineering areas.
Nano-Optics and Photonics
The focus is on applications of optics and photonics to envoronment, electrooptic microtechnologies, nanobiotechnologies and nanomedicine, mechanics and telecommunications.
Nano-technologies and Physical Technologies
The focus is on the field of micro- and nanotechnologies, in particular thin film, surface and magnetic materials technologies, and growth of nanostructured materials for the realization of special components and devices for electronics and micromechanics.
The PhD program in Physics at Politecnico di Milano operates in a very close connection between applied and basic research. The activity of doctoral students is essentially experimental, to be carried out at the Department's laboratories operating at the Leonardo Campus and Como Campus. The organization of the doctoral program also requires the doctoral student to take a series of advanced courses and seminars in Physics. The numerous collaborations with Italian and foreign research centers and universities ensure that doctoral students can enrich their experience with periods of research and training activities outside the Department.
PhD topics are focused on the research lines↗ active in the Department.
