Why in Parma?

The escalating problems related to the protection and management of the environment and the territory require the involvement of professionals with a strong interdisciplinary and transversal approach.

The environmental and land engineer is familiar with the problems related to sustainability, consumption of natural resources, and the relationship between man, his actions and the environment.

The  activity of the engineer relates to the design and implementation of works pertaining to the mitigation of human activities' impact on the environment (pollution, use of natural resources, recovery of materials, energy production, maintenance of natural areas) and to the protection and prevention of the territory from natural phenomena such as floods, landslides, climate change.

The course combines classical engineering training with knowledge in the chemical, geological, biological and legislative sciences.

Students can choose to attend a dual-title course with the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT - USA) or a study period or thesis abroad at the University of Florida, USA or University of Newcastle, Australia.
