The aim of this Master program is to provide students with integrated skills in the areas of the social sciences and humanities, the conservation and restoration sciences and physical engineering, which will enable them to understand and act on industrial and scientific heritage. The program draws on and integrates multiple skills from the Department of Applied Social Sciences, the Department of Conservation and Restoration and the Department of Physics, by bringing together unique synergies that will enable students to benefit from an innovative curriculum and the possibility of preparing dissertations within an interdisciplinary perspective.
This programme aims to provide students with consistent and up-to-date knowledge about industrial and scientific heritage, as well as to develop technical and scientific skills adjusted to the academic and professional context. Based on an interdisciplinary perspective and by combining knowledge from different fields, at the end students should be able to:
In terms of the professional opportunities, the Master’s degree in Industrial and Scientific Heritage opens up the possibility to manage heritage through the preservation of material and immaterial culture, which requires a dialogue with the various stakeholders, from the State and local authorities to producers and consumers of culture, private institutions, museums, foundations and associations. This training will enable graduates to develop fundamental heritage management skills in central and local governmental bodies, in curatorship in arts, science, technology and industrial heritage, in conservation and restoration of industrial and scientific heritage, in communication and industrial tourism, in research and scientific, cultural, industrial and heritage policymaking.

The Applied Social Sciences Department (DCSA) guarantees, at the NOVA School of Science and Technology, the teaching and the research in areas outside the basic sciences and engineering, giving thus our students a structured training in the field of applied social sciences, what passes by having competency in the fields of expression and communication, the relationship between science / technology / society (history, philosophy and contemporary thought) ethics, work organization and economy, management and entrepreneurship.More info
The Department of Conservation and Restoration of NOVA School of Science and Technology has the mission of teaching and research in the area of Heritage, promoting its knowledge, conservation and enjoyment.
The teaching staff with interdisciplinary skills and the properly equipped laboratories contribute to the creation of learning and research environments in the different areas of knowledge linked to conservation, considered in its relationship between theory and practice.
The established network of national and international collaborations and partnerships enables the development of stimulating projects, with recognized merit and also the creation of unique opportunities for internships and professional outings.
DCR believes that sharing the enthusiasm for heritage conservation among teachers and students is its main commitment.More info
The Physics Department (DF) is a graduate teaching unit and a post-graduate degree unit (1st, 2nd and 3rd study cycles) and a basic and applied research unit in the fields of Physics, Physics Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. It is focused on scientific and technological development, services provision and scientific disclosure. Besides being responsible for the Integrated Masters in Physics Engineering and Biomedical Engineering, as well for the doctoral programs in the same areas in Physics and for the doctoral programs "NOVA Instrumentation for Health - NOVA 4H" and "Radiation Biology and Biophysics - Rabbit," the DF ensures the teaching of basic physics to all NOVA School of Science and Technology courses.
This Department started with a small existing nucleus since NOVA School of Science and Technology’s the birth, managed by Prof. Manuel Laranjeira (then Rector of NOVA), the Department of Physics was formally recognized in 1986 and maintained since then a faculty of about 30 people. Its activities in Physics and Physics Engineering were extended in 2000 to include the Biomedical Engineering.
The scientific DF activity takes place mainly in two Research Units, the LIBPhys-UNL and the CEFITEC. The research covers various areas such as nanophysics and energy, atomic and molecular physics, nuclear physics and plasma, physical interfaces, lasers and optoelectronics, sensors, cryogenics, analytical techniques applied to health and cultural heritage, medical instrumentation and medical imaging.More info
