Learning objectives

The aim of the course is to provide the students with the fundamental knowledge of the modern geology, starting from the formation of the planet and arriving to the plate tectonic theory. The first part of the course provides the students with the basic knowledge of the “fundamental system” of the Earth, through the study of the genetic process of the various rocks found on surface. The second half of the course deals primarily with the general processes that are acting on the Earth surface, such as water runoff, ice and glaciers, wind etc. The general purpose is to supply the students of Civil and Environmental Engineering with the basic geological knowledge that will allow them to understand the interaction between human actions and natural environment for both, environmental preservation and natural risk reduction.
