Learning objectives

The career-oriented degree course aims to train a professional, the Graduate Geometrician, capable of working in three main areas:
1. Building, town planning and territory: in this field, the Graduate Geometra is characterised by the multiplicity of skills acquired, enabling him to design small-scale works, manage and account for works, as well as inspections and safety coordination in all the phases involved. These skills also extend to services such as property administration and energy certification.
2. Land valuation and expert witness activity: in this field, the Graduate Surveyor can put into practice what he has learnt during his training to carry out consultancy ranging from estimating the market value of real estate, to technical and regulatory assistance (indispensable both for private citizens and for companies and enterprises awarded public or private procurement contracts), in judicial and extrajudicial disputes.
3. Geomatics and cadastral activities: in this field, the Graduate Geometrician applies the skills acquired by carrying out activities such as cadastral updating, fractioning and amalgamation operations, the geometric survey and graphic restitution of buildings, the tracing of building works in general and infrastructural works such as, for example, road and railway tracks, pipelines and conduits, sewers and channels.
The subjects taught in the course of studies will ensure the necessary multidisciplinarity in order to provide the skills to address complex problems arising from the interaction between human intervention and the surrounding environment.
The course catalogue of the career-oriented degree course in ‘Constructions, Infrastructures and Territorial Management’ includes: basic disciplines (mathematics, experimental physics) aimed at providing students with a solid foundation and the necessary tools and skills for the subsequent understanding of the disciplines of civil engineering and environmental and territorial engineering (construction science, hydraulics, construction techniques, topography, hydraulic constructions, geotechnics, road, railway and airport construction, architectural design, urban planning), which are taught in both core and laboratory courses. Related disciplines are also envisaged (land valuation, administrative law) aimed at providing knowledge and skills in more specific areas, in which technical-scientific knowledge must be combined with the indispensable and modern legal and regulatory aspects. Finally, there are other activities of the student's choice, as well as a final 1,200-hour internship carried out in organisations, institutions, companies or professional firms, during which the student will come into contact with the realities of the world of construction, infrastructure or land planning, construction, management and protection activities and will be able to apply the skills acquired during the course of studies. The internship will also contribute to enriching the student's cultural background and experience, which is essential for future employment, and to create opportunities for contact with the world of work, facilitating placement once the training course has been completed.
Continuing studies in master's degrees is not a natural outlet for courses in this class.
