NEWS! A webinar showcasing this programme and involving a professor and a current student took place as part of Ca’ Foscari’s 2023 INTERNATIONAL OPEN DAYS.




If you are interested in nanotechnology, then this programme equips you with the knowledge of material science, chemistry and biology that becoming an expert in the design and synthesis of new bio- and nanomaterials requires.

The Science and Technology of Bio and Nanomaterials programme pairs traditional lectures and laboratory classes that teach you how to prepare bio- and nanomaterials and to explore their chemical-physical characteristics, properties, methods of preparation and applications.

During your studies, you are given the chance to carry out an internship and learn on the job at research laboratories and companies both in Italy and abroad.
