Polytechnic School
img_scuola2

The Polytechnic School of the University of Palermo proposes a new educational model that aims to integrate, in a modern multi-disciplinary approach, the traditional knowledge of the former Faculties of Agriculture, Architecture, Economics and Engineering by making system with resources and skills.
The Polytechnic School presents a wide and varied educational offer, with 37 courses of study among degrees, master degrees and integrated master degrees, and can compete with the most prestigious national and international universities.

The President of the School
Maurizio Carta

SUBJECTS

Agribusiness
The world of agricultural sciences is the "primary sector", from where everything comes; the health of the planet and the feeding of each of us depend on it. The agronomist that we form in our Master Degrees has a strong interdisciplinary background and is dedicated to the management of crop systems, the quality and marketing of food products, but also to the management of parks and gardens and the countryside, with the right balance between theory and practical experience, to guarantee the production system and the consumer.

Architecture
The most humanistic of the sciences but also the most scientific of the humanities: Architecture is the science in which mathematics is translated into music, structure in poetry, matter in art. Studies in architecture actualize the Vitruvian triad of firmitas, utilitas and venustas in contemporary language: technological innovations renew structural language; new demands of a changing society require more flexible environments; the aesthetics of functionality is sought as an intrinsic component of quality of life. A fourth component is now the assessment of ecological and environmental sustainability of the project, from the dimension of architectural design, technology and restoration to the product design and visual communication, from the complexity of the town to the macro scale of the landscape. Studies in architecture, civil engineering and architecture, planning and design share the project dimension as a common denominator.

Economics, Business Administration, Statistics
The disciplines of economics concern the study of economic systems, the role and characteristics of all the involved subjects, but also the interdependencies between them. The Polytechnic School, through the Department of Economics Business and Statistics, presents an interesting educational offer to students who want to pursue this program. What is the market demand? What is the offer? How does the interaction between these two works? How do the consumers choose? What is a business company and which are the strategies used for its success? How to measure its performance? How to measure social and economic phenomena? How to do the statistical surveys and analyze the experimental and social data? Graduates of the economic area will be able to answer these questions.

Engineering
The word Engineering comes from the Latin ingenium.
Today, the engineer applies the results of mathematics, physics, and chemistry and, in general, the scientific method to solve problems in many fields of application and on the basis of his/her specialization. The engineer not only designs complex and different systems (e.g. mega structures, advanced mechanical systems, new electronic devices, software, industrial plants, etc.) but he/she also directs the construction and operation.

Professional opportunities

Degrees
Graduates may perform activities of analysis, research and collaboration to planning activities for public administrations, businesses and public and private companies, or continue their studies in master degrees, 1st level university professional master courses, specialization courses. After the required qualification exam, they may enrol in sections B of professional associations (if available).

Master degrees
Graduates may operate as independent professionals (agronomists, architects, designers, restorers, planners, urban planners, landscape architects, engineers, economists, statisticians) and/or consultants in their respective fields; they may undertake managerial careers in local authorities, public administrations, companies and public/private enterprises; they may contribute to the creation of enterprise, in the field of production, management and quality certification; they may conduct scientific research at universities and research centres. They may continue their studies in 2nd level university professional master courses, specialization courses or PhDs. After the required qualification exam, they may enrol in sections A of professional associations (if available).

Besides these complex structures, there are some others in hospitals that are part of the training network of the School; all students can attend these hospitals and perform the activities of professional training provided in the curricula.

The President of the School
Francesco Vitale

SUBJECTS

Clinic
Medicine has the objective to train doctors, dentists and other professionals in the health field, who have a biomedical and humanist scientific culture and a multidisciplinary vision centred on diseased people. The disease is seen as the result of organic, psychological, social, familiar and lifestyles factors. To achieve the goal of training health professionals, education starts from the knowledge (core subjects), through the skills (attending hospitals), till the interpersonal skills. This path realizes in the formation of Graduates in “Medicine and surgery“, in “Dentistry” and Health professions (Nursing, Midwifery, Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy, Orthotics, Techniques of Psychiatric Rehabilitation). The professional training is crucial for the graduate in Medicine who intends to carry on the activity of general practitioner, to continue studies in the Specialization Schools in clinical area, to do clinical research.

Surgery
In patient care surgery is a fundamental aspect, in many cases it is a decisive discipline for healing, which uses knowledge and evolving technologies, aimed at the realization of more complex and conservative surgery. The surgeon has a degree in medicine or dentistry, with extraordinary manual skill, decision-making capacity, especially when called to perform emergency interventions, but also deep humanity and capacity for dialogue with the patient.
The decision to become a surgeon grows during programs in “Medicine” and in “Dentistry”: surgery teachings, in fact, are expected from the fifth and sixth year. The degree in “Medicine and surgery” allows continuing studies in the Specialization Schools of surgical area or performing surgery-applied research.

Diagnostics
A key step in treating the disease is the time of diagnosis: technology at the service of medicine. The complete automation of equipment allows you to perform real-time laboratory tests whose results help the doctor to check the status of health/disease of the patient and give direction in diagnostic choices. Students in “Biomedical laboratory techniques” carry out training activities in the laboratories of the School. Similarly Radiology uses complex and sophisticated equipment, which makes use of ionizing radiation, ultrasound, and magnetic fields. The students of “Radiological techniques” attend the Radiology service of the School of Medicine. The numerous research laboratories allow to acquire new knowledge of the pathophysiological mechanisms that lead to disease and are attended by students in “Medicine” and in “Medical biotechnology and molecular medicine” engaged in basic scientific research. The program in “Medicine” provides access to the Specialization Schools of the services area.

Prevention
Educating to health means involving everyone in a program aimed at reducing the number of patients and the improvement of quality of life. Today's challenge is directed to health promotion in most vulnerable population groups (children, the elderly, immigrants, etc.) and the prevention of more serious diseases, often incurable. Prevention interventions may be directed to the environment (protection of water, air, soil, food, control of production activities and safety in the workplace), or people (schools, families, workers, community). Degrees in “Prevention techniques for the environment and workplace” and “Healthcare assistance” form professionals responsible for such activities. Graduates in “Medicine and surgery” may access to the Specialization Schools of the services area of Public Health or do epidemiological - preventive research.

Professional opportunities

Degrees
Graduates may find a job in the Health Professions as employees in hospitals and local public and private health facilities.
The degree offers a qualification that allows performing freelance activity in individual or associated professional studios. Graduates may also access the master degree of their class.

Master degrees
Graduates in “Medicine” and “Dentistry” may operate as independent professionals (doctors, dentists) and in convention with the NHS. They may also perform management activity in local public or private hospitals. The degree in “Medicine and Surgery” is the requirement to access to Specialization schools.
Master Graduates in the health professions may play, after the competition, the role of coordinator in Public Health facilities; graduates in “Medical biotechnology and molecular medicine” may carry out their activities in research centres, in the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotechnology industries.

SUBJECTS

Environment
The industry of the environment is a developing field and the demand for professionals with a synthetic and systematic vision of the environment for the management of environmental issues is growing in the public administrations and the private sector. To meet this need, the Science of Nature and the Environment and Geology provide a wide offer for those who want to operate in the management and protection of the environment. These disciplines base their studies on modern analytical techniques developed by Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, Biology and Geology. With these methods, graduates in Science of Nature and the Environment and in Geology conduct refined analysis, in basic research and providing models for the assessment of natural risks and for the finding and management of natural resources.

Biology and Biotechnology
Biology and Biotechnology, fields in continuous development, study at various levels and with different methodological and technological aspects, living organisms. For their interdisciplinary nature, they provide answers to current issues in medical and health, agricultural, environmental, pharmaceutical, industrial areas. The degrees in this field provide a solid basic knowledge of mathematics, chemistry and physics and a good command of the methodologies and technologies related to the fields of scientific research. The course of Biological Sciences offers adequate preparation for assimilating the scientific and technological advances related to the life sciences, while the course of Biotechnology, articulated in the agrifood or biomedical curriculum, provides knowledge aimed to use biological functions and systems for the production of goods and services

Mathematics and Computer Science
The aim of mathematical knowledge is to establish the necessary relationships, the logical connections, between the properties of objects. Mathematics uses the tools of logic and develops its knowledge in the context of hypothetical-deductive systems that, from strict definitions and axioms regarding the properties of the defined objects, reaches new certainty, by means of demonstrations on properties less intuitive than the objects themselves, expressed by the theorems. Computer science concerns the scientific aspects behind the design and development of computer systems and the transmission and processing of information.
Computer Science has deep roots in mathematics, but, at the same time, look at many aspects of the real world and other scientific fields, looking for automated solutions to questions of everyday life so as to more complex ones raised by scientific communities.

Chemical, Physical and Pharmaceutical Sciences
Physical and Chemical Sciences arise with the man questioning about universe and existence. Chemistry and Physics are called "hard sciences" because they use strictly experimental method: the formulation of interpretative hypotheses, whose validity is tested through experiments, follows the observation of phenomena. Chemistry studies the composition of matter, its behaviour and its transformations; physics studies the natural phenomena in order to establish the principles and laws that govern the interactions between physical values and accounts for their mutual variations. Developments of the hard sciences have given rise to other disciplines such as Pharmaceutical Sciences concerning the design, development and analysis of medicines. Among the various applications diagnostic, analytical and instrumental techniques are used in issues related to the environment, cultural heritage and its conservation, or forensics.

Agricultural Technology
Whatever is used by the world food industry, but also other areas, such as renewable energy or sustainable building and planning and land management, derives from agricultural production and technology.
The professional who graduates in Agricultural Science and Technology, Forest and Environmental Science, Viticulture and Enology and Agricultural Engineering, acquires an interdisciplinary background in important topics, approached with appropriate balance between theory and practical experience in agro-food businesses. This training allows to have the appropriate skills to deal with the management of agribusiness and forestry, following the entire path of the supply chain, from the production to the consumer.

Professional opportunities

Degrees
Employment opportunities for graduates of the School of Basic and Applied Sciences are many and expendable in both public and private sectors. They range from agricultural to chemical, physical to pharmaceutical, biological to biotechnological, mathematician to computer areas. For some graduates registration in the professional category is expected. They may also continue their studies with first level professional Master Courses, Master Degrees and Specialization Courses.

Master Degrees
Postgraduates, with specific in-depth training, may work as freelance professionals or perform research and professional activities in public and private structures. In particular, they can provide consulting and planning in farms, protected areas, processing enterprises, diagnostic laboratories and businesses, research institutions in the bio-health field, certification activities and security control, conservation and recovery of the natural biological heritage, management in specialized structures in agricultural production, environmental planning and landscape.
And also for the environmental control and monitoring, the development of new innovative products and processes in biological and/or environmental industries: for some postgraduates registration in the professional category is expected. They may also continue their studies with second level professional Master Courses, PhD, Specialization Schools and Higher Education Courses.
