PROGRAM AND DIDACTIS

The School of Nano- and Physical Sciences consists in a 3 years full-time course, with emphasis on training-through-research and on advanced thesis work. Introductory, basic and advanced courses are offered, together with seminars and tutorials. Stages and summer schools in qualified research institutes in Italy and abroad are considered part of the training. The aim is to produce a final dissertation on original themes of high standard in the international scientific framework.
All the lectures will be held in english.
