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: focus is on applications of optics adn photonics to envoronment, electrooptic microtechnologies, nanobiotechnologies and nanomedicine, mechanics and telecommunications.
    • Developments in the field of TLC, information processing, with the extremely high transmission capacity that is allowed by laser sources and photonic materials and reduced focussing dimensions of a laser beam in optical-disc readers.
    • Development of laser instrumentation for biomedical applications, both for surgical treatment of suitable diseases and for non-invasive diagnosis; primary application fields are ophthalmology, dermatology and tumor therapy.
    • Technologies for industrial production and manufacturing with great advantages in terms of processing speed and precision by means of laser cutting and welding. Technologies for quality control based on rapid, non-contact and non-destructive measurements to determine chemical composition, electronic state, mechanical stress, temperature, dimensions, defects, etc.


  • Nano-technologies and Physical Technologies: 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.
    • Capability of material manipulation at the micro and nanoscale, down to control and manipulation of single atoms, whenever needed.
    • Development of advanced instrumentation, with industrial impact; such instrumentation combines the most recent results of basic research in physics with advanced technologies that are being developed in different engineering fields.
    • Study and control of material parameters in the surface region. This is of primary importance in many applications, ranging from innovative semiconductors, gas sensors, surface chemistry, and of course in fundamental research.
