    The environment we live in nowadays is very complex and the architect is forced to work on the existing heritage paying particular attention to its sustainability and considering the enviroment together with the built heritage as a resource to protect. The new MSc programme "Architectural Design and History" is offering a study plan based on this very attitude. Its mission is to train students to be cultured architects, well-aware of the historic and artistic context in which they work as well as of the other cultural fields. New designs shall be included in and compared to the already existing ones. The respect of the built heritage is the starting point for the new design to become a reutilization project, a requalification project, sometimes even completion and new integration.

    Chemical Engineering and Chemical Engineers provide the leading-edge solutions to the society’s needs: we need efficient and clean technologies for energy transformation, technologically advanced materials, better medicines, efficient food production techniques, a clean environment, a better utilization of the natural resources. Chemical Engineering plays a pivotal role because all these challenges have a common denominator: they involve chemical processes. Chemical Engineers are the "engineers of chemistry": by making use of chemistry, physics and mathematics they describe the chemical processes from the molecular level to the macroscale (chemical plant), and design, operate, and control all processes that produce and/or transform materials and energy.
