The training programme
The training path of the graduate in Environmental and land management engineering is divided into two levels: - characterising training in the field of Environmental and land management engineering;
- integrative training in the fields of law, chemistry, ecology and hydraulics.
The subjects taught in the Second-Cycle Degree Course are intended to provide up-to-date and specific skills that will enable graduates to develop technological innovation, to study, design, plan and manage engineering interventions on complex systems, both as self-employed professionals and in public administrations and manufacturing or service companies.
The course units can be grouped into five learning areas:
- Area of completion of basic knowledge
- Specialist and planning area for hydrogeological risk defence
- Specialist and planning area for environmental defence
- Specialist and planning area for territorial knowledge and defence
- Area of autonomy and responsibility
The course units taught in the first area broaden the student's preparation, providing the theoretical and practical tools of the main disciplines of civil engineering.
The course units taught in the second learning area provide the tools for designing different types of hydrogeological risk mitigation interventions and the prevention of extreme events.
In the third learning area, the topics of environmental quality will be explored in order to achieve in-depth knowledge of environmental quality parameters, the design of water treatment and purification plants as well as urban waste management; in addition, the tools for the different types of environmental impact assessment will be conveyed.
The fourth area of learning is geared towards the territory in which the environmental and land engineer operates, with course units that provide a complement to soil knowledge through the most modern techniques of remote surveying and planning tools for correct and sustainable land use.
The fifth area of learning consists of the practical application of the notions learnt and skills acquired in the previous four areas through direct experimentation (laboratory) or work activity in a company (internship) and the final dissertation activity.
