Corso di laurea magistrale

Sbocchi professionali

The degree in Materials and Nanotechnology, which belongs to the degree class in Materials Science and Engineering (LM-53, 61 / S), has a high potential in the labor market, as shown by the employment outcomes conducted by AlmaLaurea and referred to all graduates of this degree class. The main career opportunities for graduates in Materials and Nanotechnology are: innovation and development of production, advanced design, planning and scheduling, management of complex systems and the qualification and diagnostic of materials. Graduates in Materials and Nanotechnology will be able to find employment with companies for the development and production, processing of metallic, polymers, ceramics, glassy and composite materials for applications in the chemical, mechanical, electrical, electronic, telecommunications, energy, construction, transport, biomedical, environmental sectors and in field of conservation of Cultural Heritage. Numerous, therefore, are the areas in which the graduates in Materials and Nanotechnology can find useful career prospects. The awareness on the part of manufacturing companies on the importance of new materials and their properties in the development of advanced technologies and innovation is constantly growing and the figures of materials scientist and materials engineer, little-known until not long ago, are more and more appreciated and requested. The development of new technologies (in particular nanotechnology) creates even higher expectations of application, which can however only be handled by well-trained scientist and engineers with a solid multidisciplinary background. Nanoscientists may perform research and postulate theories, whereas nanoengineers work with manipulating matter on the nanoscale. Nanoengineering is by nature interdisciplinary, sometimes involving chemistry, biology, or physics, for example, and often produces new products with never before seen properties and capabilities. According to the nanotechnology job projections carried out by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) in the USA, it is estimated that nearly 300.000 scientist and engineers will be needed by 2020 in EU in the Nanoscience and Nanotechnology field, of which about 20.000 in Italy. The degree programme in Materials and Nanotechnology provides students with knowledge and skills required for modern Materials Science and Engineering. Graduates will be prepared for careers within academia or industry in materials-related research and development. The research activities in Materials Science and Engineering at Pisa University and at Scuola Normale Superiore are strongly linked to the cutting-edge technologies in the area. Therefore, the demand for talents in those fields is large both in research institutes and industries. For example, high-performance composites, bio-based polymers and composites, semiconductor/superconductor nanostructure design, growth and experimental investigation to single-molecule studies in live cells and tissues are of high interest in the industries in Italy and other European countries.
