From the new September course of studies in “Nanoscience and Nanotechnology for Sustainability”. Will form Loretti for ecological transformation


A new degree course was born at the University of Salerno, the only one of its kind in Italy: “Science and Nanotechnology for Sustainability”. This enriches the University’s 2022/23 training offer. From September 2022, this new highly innovative three-year degree will be active, based in the Department of Physics and aimed at training graduates who have both transverse skills (physics, chemistry and technologies) and through emerging technologies (nanotechnologies, quantum technologies.)), able to meet the challenges of environmental transformation. The course aims to train technical figures in four main areas: renewable energy, sustainable mobility, environmental protection and control, and circular economy.
The goal is to train an “intelligent” person who is able to use resources correctly while respecting the environment, contributing to sustainable development and combating climate change. Compared to traditional certification courses, with this new course we plan to train people who will have easier access to the world of work. Increasing attention is being paid to emerging professions in the field of environmental sustainability. Green jobs represent a new career perspective and require professionals with cross-sectional knowledge who are dedicated to a green transition in the world we live in.”
The course includes: basic teaching, study of transformation processes and innovative technologies, study of chemical-physical properties of matter, environmental and energy sustainability, mobility resources, safety and environmental systems, and technology transfer. The course will also, thanks to the significant contribution of laboratory activities and in-house training in the company, train expert careers in energy saving, renewable energy, nuclear physics, thermal and electrical energy production, environmental control, assembly and processing. Waste and environmental treatment. Graduates of “Science and Nanotechnology for Sustainability” will be able to carry out professional activities in the industries of microelectronics, sensors and chemicals or working in the sectors of energy, environment and cultural heritage. Support can be in new high-tech companies, also originated by university or industrial research (research subsidiaries and innovative start-ups) or in laboratories of institutes and research bodies such as, for example, CNR, INSTM, Enea, INFN and universities. In short, the figure that is particularly needed by the market associated with the “green revolution” is in progress.
