 Educational objectives

The objectives of the course of study are aimed at training an engineer capable of dealing with the complex problems typical of the environment and the territory that affect the interaction between natural (air, water, soil, biosphere) and anthropic components at a high level.

The objectives of the course of study are aimed at training an engineer capable of dealing with the complex problems typical of the environment and the territory that affect the interaction between natural (air, water, soil, biosphere) and anthropic components at a high level. This requires a high multidisciplinarity in basic knowledge and the development of aptitude for problem setting, problem solving and design in specialized (characterizing and related) subjects. The common basic lessons provide knowledge and skills on phenomena and methods through a training course based on frontal teaching and individual or group exercises aimed at acquiring autonomy and skills in calculation and modeling techniques. The specialist and orientation courses deepen the specific technical, technological and management aspects through specialist or multidisciplinary design activities to train engineers capable of operating in the evaluation, planning, design, implementation, management and monitoring of processes and works (environmental management of companies , remediation, evaluation and reduction of polluting emissions, infrastructures and construction sites of strategic works, works and protection plans, risk assessment and mitigation, emergency management, climate change and their effects, territorial governance and environmental policies).


The training course is divided into four tracks with specific objectives

Environmental protection:
Provide a technical-scientific preparation to be able to design and implement the most appropriate technological interventions, environmental protection, in the usual anthropic activities or in the presence of incidental events. In addition, impart knowledge to allow the design and implementation of interventions for the recovery of polluted sites and to allow the planning and management of production activities in an environmentally compatible way.

Geo-Engineering:
Prepare students for the design and construction of excavation engineering interventions (above and below ground) and major works that interact with the soil and rocks. Provide the technical-scientific contents to solve engineering problems related to the stability of excavations on the surface and underground works, to the management and organization of large construction sites that impact the territory.


Natural hazards and civil protection:
Provide a technical-scientific preparation necessary to evaluate, plan, implement, monitor and manage interventions to prevent territorial instability due to natural and / or anthropic causes and identify areas at risk of floods, landslides, earthquakes, soil subsidence and conditions predisposing to such events; plan to implement and monitor interventions for the prevention and management of natural risks, in relation to water flows, including underground, slopes on the ground and rocky walls; examples are the works for the containment of water levels, the consolidation of soils and rocks, the interventions on the slopes for erosion control. Emergency and civil protection plans are of great importance, considered as non-structural interventions.

Climate Change:
provide a technical-scientific preparation aimed at the training of an engineer who is able to know and model climate systems and their interaction with anthropic systems, to know international policies and guidelines, to plan and manage technological interventions for their mitigation, to plan adaptation strategies, to plan, implement and monitor interventions for the management of natural events and scarcity of resources.

The employment and professional outlets of the graduates in Engineering for the Environment and the Territory are growing strongly and concern various areas related to the environmental management of the production processes of companies, to the adaptation of processes to regulations and environmental policies in continuous evolution for businesses and public bodies, to local governance. In particular, we can mention the planning, management and control of the works or processes, the design of works and plants, the direction of the construction works, the direction of construction sites and interventions that interact with the territory, the direction of plants, infrastructures, environmental systems.
Employment outlets are in manufacturing and service companies, public bodies for government and land management, management and technical consultancy companies. The master's degree also has professional competence in forecasting, prevention and protection from risks to health, the environment and the territory.
The engineer for the Environment and the Territory works through various technical tools such as: territorial information systems and monitoring networks for the acquisition and management of territorial and environmental data, environmental impact studies and environmental management systems of works, processes, plants, products, transformations of land use in progress or in anticipation; deals with the design, implementation and management of technological interventions for the containment of emissions, the disposal and recovery of waste and the remediation of contaminated sites, works for the defense of the soil and the prevention of hydraulic, hydrogeological and territorial instability; contributes to the preparation of Civil Protection plans. The Climate Change course offers graduates a professional profile that can be spent on a global scale by giving skills related to the challenges imposed by climate change on human activities and the territory, through the use of climate models and data to predict effects and risks in the field. insurance, the design and management of monitoring systems and protection and adaptation works to improve the resilience of man-made systems, the identification and design of systems and actions to mitigate emissions and adapt to international policies and guidelines.

The Study program qualifies the following professional profile/s: Roles and skills:
   
Engineer specialized in Environmental Protection    
   
   

Qualifications for further studies Knowledge required to continue studies
