Geo-Engineering (in English)
Natural risks and Civil Protection
To provide a scientific and technical background to be able to design and implement the most appropriate technological interventions, even complex ones, of environmental protection during the usual human activities or in the case of accidents. Moreover, to share knowledge to enable the design and implementation of measures for the recovery of polluted sites and to allow the planning and management of production activities that are compatible with the environment.
To prepare students to design and implement excavation engineering interventions (surface and underground) and major works that interact with the soil and rocks. To provide technical and scientific content to solve engineering problems related to the stability of the surface and to underground excavation works, to the proper exploitation of mineral resources, the management and organization of major work construction sites that have an impact on the territory.
To provide technical and scientific preparation to be able to identify risks of floods, landslides, soil subsidence, broken levees, and to intervene by designing and creating works that can contain the water flow on the surface and underground, to stabilize slopes on the ground and walls rocky, consolidate the soil and rocks in order to eliminate the risk of landslides and soil subsidence. The specialization includes a new specific course in Civil Protection, focusing on works planning and on management of emergency related to natural instability events (landslides, floods, earthquakes).
