- The Energy and Sustainability curriculum allows the achievement of a double degree issued with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (for selected students who go on the move for at least a semester at the partner university in Israel). Scholarships are available).

Programme learning outcomes

Graduates of the Program will be able to demonstrate:

- knowledge and understanding that is founded upon and extends that of Bacherol’s level in chemistry, and that provides a basis for originality in developing and applying ideas within a research context

- competences which fit them for employment as professional chemists in chemical and related industries or in public service

- knowledge and competence which will give them access to third cycle course units or degree programs

- ability to apply their knowledge, understanding and problem-solving skills in new or unfamiliar environments within broader or multidisciplinary contexts related to chemical sciences;

- ability to integrate knowledge, handle complexity, and formulate judgements with incomplete or limited information but that include reflecting on ethical responsibilities linked to the applications of their knowledge and judgements;

- ability to communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audience clearly and unambiguously;

- ability to continue to study in a manner largely self-directed or autonomous and to take responsibility for their own professional development.

Qualification requirements and regulations, including graduation requirements

Admission 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 other than the final test.

The final test for the achievement of the qualification is public and consists of the presentation of a thesis work to a special commission.

The thesis consists of an experimental research activity on a topic related to curriculum chosen by the student. The research work is complemented by the preparation, presentation and discussion of a written thesis in Italian or English, in which the results achieved during the thesis work are reported.

Examination regulations and grading scale

Assessment is normally an oral or written exam; in some cases there are intermediate exams during the course; other evaluation elements (seminars, reports, etc.) can be foreseen in specific course units and are described in the Course Unit Profiles.
The grades for subject exams are measured in thirtieths (0-30 scale), the minimum grade is 18/30 and the maximum grade is 30/30. The maximum grade can be enhanced with “cum laude” (30 cum laude), in case of excellence. Grades are given by an exam commission of at least two teachers, whose President is the chair of the subject.

The main exam sessions are held in January/February, March/April, June/July, September/October. Students may retake exams, if not passed.

The University provides an ECTS Grading Table, which shows the actual distribution of the examination and final grades among students for each degree programme.

The final degree evaluation is expressed in one hundred and tenths (0-110 scale), the minimum grade is 66/110 and the maximum grade is 110/110. The calculation of the final grade of each candidate takes into account the average of the grades obtained in the subject exams, as well as the quality of the work performed in research or in the final thesis which is discussed in public before an exam commission. “Cum laude” (110 cum laude) may be added to the maximum grade if the exam commission decides unanimously.

Obligatory or optional mobility windows

The mobility windows are optional and flexible and can cover a semester or an entire academic year depending on the needs of the individual student. The course of study encourages and promotes mobility associated with internship activities (12 ECTS, 2 months) and thesis work (24 ECTS) scheduled for the second semester of the second year through the Erasmus Traineeship program.

Students who enroll in the curriculum in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modeling and who intend to achieve the joint degree are required to attend the common courses at the institutions of the consortium during the first semester of the second year. They have to perform part of the work associated with their degree thesis at one of the partner universities abroad.

Students who enroll in the Energy and Sustainability curriculum and who intend to achieve the double degree must go to the partner university Hebrew University of Jerusalem on the move during the second semester of the second year (exchange semester according to the joint the agreement).

Work in progress

Among the major challenges facing society today, human well-being in harmony with the preservation of the natural environment plays a central role, not least with a view to preserving the full functionality of ecosystems and ensuring the fundamental services they provide in the present and future. Within this context, the Ph.D. course in Biological and Natural Sciences aims to provide in-depth theoretical and practical skills in the field of life sciences, inherent to humans and the environment. Specifically, the course is organized into two curricula, one devoted to the study of the main life processes underlying human well-being and health, such as nutrition, cell-to-cell communication, inflammation, regeneration and cell differentiation (Curriculum Processi vitali e benessere umano); the other intended for the study of the physical, chemical and biological processes that regulate the interaction of animal and plant organisms with their environment, including for the purpose of providing analytical and intervention tools for the management of critical conservation issues and the sustainable use of biodiversity (Curriculum interazione organismo-ambiente).

Aims

The teaching and scientific activities planned in the Course aim to train Ph.D. students with high international-level qualifications capable of independently developing, proposing and conducting original research projects in the most advanced areas of basic biological and naturalistic disciplines, all to ensure the well-being of organisms and the functionality of ecosystems, increasing quality and safety in human interactions with the environment.

In particular, the "Processi vitali e benessere umano" curriculum aims to train young researchers capable of developing and applying innovative and complex methodologies, including biotechnological ones, to address the most advanced aspects of basic biological disciplines, developing autonomous and original research supported by the expertise of the College faculty of the relevant SSDs.

Similarly, the preparation of doctoral students in the "Interazione Organismo-Ambiente" curriculum will enable them to autonomously carry out fundamental or applied research projects in the most advanced fields of Animal and Plant Biology and Ecology, as well as in the management and conservation of natural resources, always relying on the scientific and cultural expertise of the College faculty in the various relevant SSDs.

Additional objectives of the doctoral program:

  • To stimulate collaboration between research institutions, advanced training schools, public agencies and private companies in the biological and natural sciences, also in order to facilitate the entry of Ph.Ds into the world of work in management and coordination positions.

  • To stimulate the internationalization of research through the provision of mandatory stays abroad for Ph.D. students, the establishment and implementation of international scientific collaborations, the involvement of foreign faculty and the recruitment of non-Italian Ph.D. students.

A foundational and central element of doctoral students’ training is involvement in experimental research activities. Ph.D. students will develop their research project full-time by making critical and purposeful contributions and thus achieve scientific and managerial autonomy.

The educational objectives that the Ph.D. in Biological and Natural Sciences aims to develop are:

Year 1
  • Learning theoretical and experimental knowledge with lectures and laboratory activities.
Year 2
  • development of the research project,
  • participation in conferences,
  • participation in teaching and training activities.
Year 3
  • participation in teaching and training activities,
  • research and experimental thesis writing.

These objectives will also be supplemented with teaching and research activities for the thesis, either at home or abroad.

Curriculum: PROCESSI VITALI E BENESSERE UMANO

The activities planned in this curriculum aim to provide excellent training, with high-profile skills in biocellular and biomolecular research. Special attention will be paid to vital processes closely inherent to human well-being and health, such as nutrition, cell-to-cell communication, inflammation, regeneration and cell differentiation. Topics developed will include microorganisms that coexist with humans in physiology and pathology, their physiology, biology and ecology, and strategies for their control. The processes involved will be studied at the molecular and cellular levels, and then move up to tissue organization where applicable.

Curriculum: INTERAZIONE ORGANISMO-AMBIENTE

The activities provided in the curriculum aim to provide excellent theoretical and practical training in the study of animal and plant organisms and the environment in which they live. The training has its focus in the study of the physical, chemical and biological processes that regulate organism-environment interaction, with attention to the development of bio-ecological models and indicators that allow tracking the environmental quality of ecosystems and defining the sustainability of production processes and the use of natural resources. Particular attention is devoted to the biocoenosis of inland waters and Apennine environments that characterize the region, including Lake Trasimeno, for the understanding of functional processes that ensure ecosystem services and biodiversity conservation, also with the aim of promoting research on effective strategies for adaptation to climate change and mitigation of anthropogenic impacts.
