    This MSc degree will focus on the understanding, management, promotion and protection of high-value food products including wine. The internationally-recognised Italian food production system will be analysed as a model for defining and characterising the individual elements that contribute to the unique value of food products that are inextricably linked to place (terroir) through historic, social and cultural ties. These elements also include more recent developments in technology, nutrition, food safety, diet and health, and sensory science that are at the heart of a growing international demand for terroir-related high-value foods. The specific learning outcome for graduates of this programme will be a deep understanding of the multi-faceted characteristics that distinguish these foods from others in the marketplace and that can be exploited in products’ valorisation and consumer information strategies. The ultimate objective of this multi-disciplinary program is to train professionals who are well-versed in the complex system of producing high-value foods and wines whose quality is profoundly linked to traditions and place of origins.Teaching will include lectures, laboratory and field activities, practical exercises, and seminars by outside experts that feature a rich variety of relevant case studies. Opportunities for intensive tutoring and for master thesis-related stages of at least six months duration will be available with outstanding companies in this sector of the food industry or with other relevant organisations in the private or public sphere.

    The ever-increasing importance in every engineering branch of modeling tools, i.e., virtual prototypes simulating complex physical and societal phenomena, requires a new generation of professionals able to exploit the full potential of the current simulation resources, possessing fundamentally different and innovative work proficiencies. The expertise of modeling engineers cannot be restricted to classical devices, tools, and instrumentation, but requires a deeper and systematic knowledge of the basic concepts of mathematical and numerical modeling, with a wider vision on the intimate inter-relationship between data, physical processes, and computational methods.The Master degree in "Mathematical Engineering", offered by the University of Padova, captures the evolution of professional engineers proposing an advanced study program that combines both solid fundamental knowledge of the physical processes and deep theoretical and technological competences. This degree exposes the student to a multidisciplinary education lying between engineering and applied mathematics, providing the attendants with the ability to mold their expertise towards several specific disciplines, though still receiving a solid general-purpose engineering and modeling culture.For this reason, the program contains both theoretical and applied research-oriented courses, with the aim of building an innovative, high-level engineer profile, characterized by a strong theoretical and scientific background on mathematical modeling tools, as well as, on general physical and financial sciences, together with advanced computational engineering expertise. The successful student will acquire advanced skills in the field of mathematical modeling of physical or financial processes, with specific interest in the formulation, validation, and critical use of models and in the fundamental interpretation of related quantitative results. The graduates in Mathematical Engineering will be able to effectively formulate complex engineering problems within a multidisciplinary framework, and transfer and discuss results with experts of different disciplines.

    The program intends to build an academic and professional figure that combines advanced knowledge in the field of Physics with a high-level training in Data Science.The modeling and the theoretical interpretation of complex natural phenomena from large amounts of data are at the core of the research in Physics. The Big Data revolution presents in this sense the challenges and opportunities for the physicist of today. In addition to the figure of Data Scientist, specialized purely in the analysis of large amounts of data, it is increasingly clear the need to also train figures able to develop the methods and techniques that are fundamental for such analysis - in this sense we named the program of Physics of the Data. Training in Physics, Mathematics and Computation is increasingly necessary to generate such innovation and development. The program will thus train a new generation of physicists, which we could define as "data physicists", equipped with tools that will allow them to face the challenges that the digital revolution has brought in our society.
