Program outline

The EUREkA UBGrad program, which is fully customizable, focuses on general scientific objectives that favor an interdisciplinary and rational research approach. These scientific objectives are based on the function-through-structure materials design, which includes: (i) the control of complexity, (ii) the rational design and (iii) the instrumental control over (nano)structures of tailored-made materials. This approach is implemented via three specific educational and research axes which are:

  • Advanced Functional Polymer Materials
  • Advanced Functional Inorganic Materials
  • Advanced Functional Hybrid & Colloidal Materials

Program structure

First year

Teaching is divided into two semesters, amounting to 36 and 33 ECTS respectively.

Second year
