The SERP+ master aims at training students in the most performing experimental and theoretical tools used and developed in chemistry, and to become the topmost researchers and managers in areas of great relevance. The SERP+ master was created after years of successful training of students in the SERP-Chem master in order to answer the new societal challenges.
The International SERP-Chem master is a two-year programme in Surface, Electro, Radiation, and Photo-Chemistry with elements of Management, Business, Innovation and Valorisation, Communication and Patent law. It was created in 2008 and obtained the excellence Erasmus Mundus label in 2010. It welcomed about 140 students coming from more than 40 different countries.
The SERP+ Master is taught in English and aims at training experts in the most advanced experimental and theoretical tools developed in chemistry, physical-chemistry and materials science, making them ready to develop innovative ideas and enterprises related to sustainable developments in Energy, Health and Environment.
The international study programme includes courses, tutorials, and lab trainings in cutting-edge areas related to renewable energies, green chemistry, radiation effects, nanomaterials for the industry and nanomedicine. A strong partnership with SMEs, academic institutions and research and innovation centres in Europe, Asia, and Latin America, allow the students to strengthen their professional skills and build their network.
The students must complete their training with a 6-month internship in the academic sector or in the industry. An intensive summer school also fosters the students' entrepreneurial skills including economy management, communication, patent law, and technology transfer so they can face the job market.
At the end of the Master, the students are awarded a multiple or a joint diploma according to the mobility track they followed.
