About this program

2D Quantum Matter

2D materials such as graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, and other graphene-related materials are today at the forefront of scientic research, with recent promising twists in the direction of topologically non-trivial states of matter. During the Summer School, physics and engineering students will be trained in state-of-the-art theory, synthesis, nanofabrication, and electronic/optoelectronic applications of 2D crystals. Renowned scientists, who are currently active in this research field at an international level, will lead the training activities, in the form of a set of 12 frontal lectures. Students will also be asked to present a poster of their current activities, to promote interaction with the lecturers and with the other students.

The Foundation Course

A one-year programme taught exclusively in English, which bridges the gap between High School and University studies and it equips students with the appropriate academic grounding for an Italian degree at the University of Pisa.This programme is aimed at International students who have 11 or 10 years of schooling and have successfully completed High School and at American students who have not taken Advanced Placement (AP) courses during the last year of High School nor have attended 2 years of College

Summer Schools

Intensive academic courses for international students and also for graduates.They mostly last from 1 to 6 weeks and take place in an international context, with students and lecturers coming from various parts of the world and all lectures delivered in English.They are characterized by nonconventional teaching formats (workshops, tutorials, excursions, cultural events, business testimonials, etc.) and a multidisciplinary approach. Professors are experts in their areas and have a keen interest in what they do.Summer Schools meet strict academic regulations: each grants at least 3 ECTS credits and the participants who successfully pass the final exams will receive an official academic transcript.
