Founded in 1175, The University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE) is one of the oldest universities in the world and it is considered one of the best universities in Italy for teaching and research. With over 20,000 students, including 1,200 international students and 3,500 postgraduates, it is large enough to offer all the facilities one would expect from a major university but small enough to retain a personal and friendly learning environment.
UNIMORE is located in the heart of one of Europe's wealthiest and most dynamic regions, which is world-renowned for its production of mechanical parts, engines, sports cars (e.g. Ferrari and Maserati) as well as for its agro-food sector, ceramic tiles and manufacturing industries. The University benefits from a longstanding relationship with the area's firms and corporations, which provide private support for university research and a unique opportunity for job-oriented training programs before graduation.
With 14 Departments, it offers a wide range of degree programs and developed specific areas of excellence: Advanced Mechanics and Automotive Design, Smart ICT, Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine, Nano- and Emerging Materials and Systems for Sustainable Technologies, Genomic and Molecular Medicine, Environments, Food And Health and Models and Methods for Economic Analysis.
