The curriculum is unique and organized in interconnected subject areas:

During the first and second year you will be trained in the basic scientific and engineering subjects needed to understand the physical world and to simulate the events, processes and actions that take place on our planet.

The second and third year are dedicated to the study of specific scientific and engineering subjects relating to the wide field of environmental and land engineering, which are necessary to enter the job market or to continue your studies in order to deal with specialized issues in all areas of environmental and land engineering domain.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to select some elective courses, in order to complete and deepen your expertise on emerging issues related to environmental engineering.

At the end of the programme, you will face a final exam based on a work produced in an autonomous way.

The degree’s programme is Italian-taught, the first year is also English-taught.
In addition to frontal lectures, the course is characterized by numerous team work and “learning by doing” activities, in particular:

  • You will be able to apply the acquired knowledge through guided exercises and simple projects that require the employment of models and methodologies taught in frontal lectures. Furthermore, some elective courses involve group projects and practice exercises that will enhance your critical thinking skills
  • The first-year course “Metodi per l’ingegneria ambientale” includes a significant portion of practice exercises and team work. You will have the chance to simulate an engineering start-up responsible for the identification of sustainable solutions to simple environmental problems, working both in class and independently.
  • You will have the chance to take part in study visits and field trips
  • You will be able to join student teams
  • You will be able to include a curricular internship in your study plan
