Enrollment in the double-title Master’s Degree Programme in Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry

For students enrolled from the academic year 2019/2020, the didactic guidelines of the Master Degrees in Chemistry and in Industrial Chemistry offer the possibility of opting for one of the following Double Titles:

- Chemical Engineering, University of Twente (Enschede, NL) for both LM54 - Master in Chemistry and for the LM71 - Master in Industrial Chemistry;

- Master in Science Specialization in Chemistry, University of Cape Town (Cape Town, ZA) only for the LM54 - Master in Chemistry

 

LM54 - Chemistry: Double Degree with the University of Twente

From the academic year 2019/2020, a double degree system will be active with the programme in Chemical Engineering (Master) of the Twente University of Enschede (NL). The agreement, signed in the Spring of 2019 and stimulated by the thirty-year standing collaboration between several research teams from the two departments, offers to our students the opportunity to join an important European institution and to take advantage of cutting-edge teaching and research in the field of Nanotechnologies, Nanofabrication and Supramolecular Chemistry. The agreement provides, for Italian students, the opportunity to attend the second year of the Master’s programme (and therefore the first exchanges will take place in the AY 2020/2021) at the Dutch University. They will attend 5 courses (in English), take the related exams and prepare the experimental thesis (6 months). The double disjoint title will be released at the graduation interviews that will be held both in Twente and in Parma.

- Italian students of the Biomolecular Chemistry curriculum will attend in Twente a programme called "Nanofabrication" with the following study plan:

AMM Molecular & Biomolecular Chemistry Technology (5 ECTS);

Advanced Colloids & Interfaces (5 ECTS);

Fabrication of Nanostructures (7.5 ECTS);

Lab-on-a-chip (5 ECTS);

Nanoscience (5 ECTS);

Preparation on MSc assignment (2.5 ECTS);

MSc assignment, including report and presentation in August (35 ECTS).

 

- The Italian students of the Materials Chemistry curriculum will be enrolled in the "Advanced Molecules and Materials" programme with the following study plan:

AMM Molecular & Biomolecular Chemical Technology (5 ECTS);

Electrochemistry: fundamentals and techniques (5 ECTS);

Advanced Colloids and Interfaces (5 ECTS);

AMM Organic Materials Science (5 ECTS);

Advanced Catalysis (5 ECTS);

Preparation on MSc assignment (5 ECTS);

MSc assignment, including report and presentation in August (35 ECTS).

 

The selection for admission to the University of Twente will be made by March and will require that the student possesses an IELTS (minimum score 6.5) or TOEFL certification (internet-based minimum score 90) or Cambridge CAE or Cambridge CPE (with marks A, B or C).

The interested students are invited to apply for Erasmus scholarships.

Incoming Dutch students will have a similar curriculum with 5 courses offered in English and a 6-month thesis period.

 

LM54 - Chemistry: Double-degree with the University of Cape Town

From the academic year 2015-2016, it is possible to obtain the Double Master’s Degree in Chemistry at the University of Cape Town - UCT (ZA). The project, born on the initiative of a mobility program funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the BRICS programme “Strengthening the international dimension of research and training in Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa”, is based on a cooperation agreement between the University of Parma and the University of Cape Town, also supported by solid collaborations between research groups of the two locations. The program includes, during the second semester of the second year, the preparation of the experimental thesis at UCT for a period of six months, the topic of which is agreed between a South African researcher and an Italian co-tutor. The interested students are invited to apply for individual locally issued “Overworld” scholarships.

LM71 - Industrial Chemistry: Double Degree with University of Twente

From the academic year 2019/2020, a double degree system will be active with the Master’s programme in Chemical Engineering of the Twente University of Enschede (NL).

The double disjoint title will be released after the graduation interviews that will be held separately in Twente and Parma. The Italian students will be enrolled in Twente in a programme called "Advanced Molecules and Materials” a curriculum with the following study plan:

AMM Molecular & Biomolecular Chemical Technology (5 ECTS);

Electrochemistry: fundamentals and techniques (5 ECTS);

Advanced Colloids and Interfaces (5 ECTS);

AMM Organic Materials Science (5 ECTS);

The selection for admission to the University of Twente will be made by March and will require that the student possesses an IELTS (minimum score 6.5) or TOEFL certification (internet-based

minimum score 90) or Cambridge CAE or Cambridge CPE (with marks A, B or C). Interested students are invited to apply for Erasmus + scholarships.

Incoming Dutch students will have a similar curriculum with 5 courses offered in English and a 6-month thesis period.
