Mission and Goals
This Master of Science programme is taught entirely in English to stimulate the student in acquiring greater familiarity with the terminology used internationally. The objective of the programme is to prepare a professional figure expert in materials and in the design of processes and manufactured goods. Within the scope of the study plan a number of specific specialisations are foreseen: - Surface Engineering - Polymer Engineering - Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology - Engineering Applications - Micromechanical Engineering
The Master of Science graduate in Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering has the ability to devise and manage innovation in the materials industry; he/she finds employment mainly in companies specialised in producing, processing and design various materials and components, as well as in the area of the development of new applications in the mechanical, chemical, electronics, energy, telecommunications, construction, transport, biomedical, environmental and restoration industries as well as in research and development centres of companies and public bodies.
See http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/uploads/media/Materials_Engineering_and_Nanotechnology_04.pdf The Master of science programme aims at preparing specialists with strong technical skills for innovation of processes and applications of new materials and nanotechnologies. One of the major focuses of the MSc is on sustainable technologies and nanotechnologies for advanced applications. The city of Milan and its surroundings are fertile ground for social and technical culture, with a variety of small enterprises open to innovation and new technologies and working in niche fields, where non-traditional materials are key to future developments. The job market welcomes Material Engineers as professionals capable of handling complex problems directly related to the production, treatment and applications of materials, acknowledging the high level of education obtained at the Politecnico di Milano through original methodologies and new technologies. The programme is taught in English.
