The University of Trento is a dynamic university established in 1962 as an institution for social sciences. As a pioneering university in Italy, it housed the country’s very first Faculty of Sociology. The school expanded over the following decades, establishing additional faculties for other sciences and disciplines. Currently, it offers at least 25 undergraduate programs and 30 graduate degrees across a wide range of subjects, including science, technology, socioeconomics, humanities, and law, among others.

University of Trento’s primary priorities lie in the quality of teaching and research, as well as internationalization. The institution also strives to offer an excellent academic experience, tailoring programs to the requirements of students. The university ensures that its approach to education is supported by high-level and world-class scientific research.

The university was initially named as Istituto Universitario Superiore di Scienze Sociali, or Higher University Institute for Social Sciences in English. In 1972, it was renamed the Free University of Trento. At the time, the local government financially supported the university. By 1983, the university was once again renamed Università degli Studi di Trento and recognized as a state university.

Currently, the University of Trento is composed of ten departments, as well as several learning and research centers. The academic departments include the Faculties of (1) Engineering (Civil, Mechanical, and Environmental), (2) Economics and Management, (3) Industrial Engineering, (4) Information Engineering and Computer Science, (5) Humanities, (6) Law, (7) Physics, (8) Mathematics, (9) Sociology and Social Research, and (10) Psychology and Cognitive Science.

Aside from its academic departments, the University of Trento is also home to prestigious research centers renowned locally and globally. These include the Centre for Integrative Biology (CIBIO), the Centre for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC), and the Centre for Biomedical technologies (BIOtech). It also houses the Microsoft Research-University of Trento Centre for Computational and Systems Biology (CoSBi). To further promote internationalization, master’s and doctorate programs are held in English.

The university recognizes the idea that higher learning institutions of its size need to establish partnerships with more distinguished universities, industry leaders, and research centers worldwide. This will equip them with the required resources to keep up with the demands of the global academic arena. Because of this, the University of Trento has established a rich network that allows it to maximize educational opportunities and maintain productive relationships crucial in progressive research and education. Trento has several bilateral cooperation agreements that help it maintain an international stature. These partnerships also allowed the university to provide students with opportunities to study and work abroad.
