Specific admission requirements Formal Requirements Italian First cycle qualification (Laurea) or foreign equivalent in the same or related subject area, with possible extra work if required competences are lacking.
Evaluation of specific subject knowledge on entryVerification of the possession of the curricular requirements with the methods indicated in the academic regulation of the course of study Foreign students are required to take a test to verify their proficiency of the Italian language, except Erasmus Incoming students, Exchange Students and students in mobility as per the Cooperation Agreement.
Profile of the programmeThe Master Course in Materials and Sustainable Processes Engineering is structured to provide the student with the tools and knowledge necessary to find the best solutions for the production of materials, manage and develop their transformation processes in a sustainable way, becoming an expert in sustainable processes, green building materials and advanced materials in the aerospace field. The course allows the student to acquire a mastery of technologies, laboratory techniques and process design, achieving a solid preparation in the fields of materials for green building, sustainable processes and advanced applications
Programme learning outcomes Graduates of the Programme will have the following skills: - understanding how to address the problems related to the production, development and modeling of processes in materials engineering. - knowledge of the theoretical-scientific aspects of Engineering, - mastery of scientific methods of investigation and laboratory instruments; - knowing the processes that lead to the selection of materials for innovative applications - knowledge of design and sustainability applied to the use in the production and development of materials - design and manage highly complex experiments
Qualification requirements and regulationsAdmission to the final test for the achievement of the qualification will require that the student has acquired all the credits foreseen in the study plan for training activities. The final test consists of the presentation of a thesis work to a commission. The thesis consists of a critical analysis of the state of the art of theoretical and applied knowledge of topics related to the course (non-experimental thesis); or an experimental analysis, supported by laboratory activities, concerning undeveloped and consolidated issues of topics of the course of study (experimental thesis)
Examination regulations and grading scale Assessment is normally an oral or written exam; The grades for subject exams are measured in thirtieths (the minimum grade is 18/30. The final degree evaluation is expressed in one hundred and tenths the minimum grade is 66/110. The calculation of the final grade takes into account the average of the grades obtained in the subject exams and the quality of the final thesis. “Cum laude” (110 cum laude) may be added to the maximum
Obligatory or optional mobility windows Students are encouraged to use Erasmus programs for study or internship purposes. As for the study, mobility must begin at the beginning of each semester to follow recognized equivalent courses. Regarding the internships, they can be performed within the Erasmus + or similar programs and it is more flexible
Work-based learningThe internship is mandatory for all curricula and can be carried out: at educational facilities and at the laboratories of the University of Perugia with the recognition of 1 ECTS for 25 hours of activity; making internships at organizations or industries that work in the materials and / or sustainable processes sector, also in this case 1 ECTS is worth 25 hours of activity making internship periods abroad at organizations, industries or universities: Such internship must be regulated by international agreements, or should take place in the framework of University calls such as the Erasmus + Mobility for Traineeship Call, with a recognition of 5 ETCS for each month of internship
Occupational profiles of graduates Graduates will able to work as. Material Engineer in materials manufacturing companies, and companies specialized in sustainable production. - Researcher - responsible for production, plant manager, research and development engineer. Middle manager, manager, chief executive officer. Acquired skills: design and management of production plants; creation of new materials, replacement of traditional materials, design and development of innovative and sustainable techniques
