About Palermo University

The University of Palermo (UNIPA) is a consolidated cultural, scientific and teaching presence in central-western Sicily. Its 16 Departments cover the most important domains of contemporary scientific and technological knowledge. About 122 courses (first and second cycle) are yearly offered as well as 44 master and specialization and 23 PhD courses, targeted to the training of specific professional figures, often in cooperation with external institutions and companies.

The University General Hospital is a local health corporation that works in synergy with the School of Medicine. It provides beds,

day-hospital beds, and a first-aid service. UNIPA is also present in three other cities in Sicily, apart Palermo: Agrigento, Caltanissetta e Trapani.

There is a closed link between UNIPA and the labor market: 3rd students of 1st cycle degree courses and 2nd year students of the 2nd

cycle experience practice periods within public or private companies and agencies.

Research activities

Palermo University has 16 Departments, where researchers study every day to find new solution to the questions posed by nature, science and society. From Information Technology to Biology, from Mathematics to Medicine, to Social Sciences and Preservation of Cultural Heritage, the University works to make its contribution of innovation and progress to the international scientific community and the world of production. In the laboratories – many of which are open to the local community – the first step of collaboration between researchers in the academic world and in the business world are taken, basic and applied research is carried out, and young brains are given the chance to turn their intuitions to good account. Here scientific research finds its application in robotics, pharmaceutical industry, ecology, and medical

diagnostics. Successful technological transfer implies the full synergy of innovative technologies, scientific expertise, production systems and

processes. Actually, it is necessary to implement a full-fledged system including the “know-how”, production processes, goods, services

and organizational and operational skills. Further info at: https://www.unipa.it/mobilita/en/useful-information/about-palermo-univer...
