Best Masters in Environmental Engineering in Italy 2017. Growing population, immigration, uncontrolled urbanisation, pollution, mono-functional areas abandoned, heritage threatened, urge new solutions posing monumental challenges in terms of housing, transport, energy, environment, health and social inclusion. It becomes crucial a regeneration of the city. This is the issue addressed in the world-class Master Course named reCity. A course created for a new generation of professionals who want to design and share innovative ideas supporting communities, stake-holders and political leaders towards more sustainable cities. Focus of the reCity, is the design of city regeneration, pursued with an holistic approach based on improving the beneficiaries’ competences necessary to be key actors within the advanced process of sustainable urban development and renewal, in terms of design, communication, building and management of the contemporary city. The reCity objective is to deepen university study and work experience, integrating them with interdisciplinary skills. The aim is to build the professionalism required in the labour market for successful employment in a wide range of contexts related to city regeneration projects. In the reCity, students, eligible from all over the world, work in cross-disciplinary teams, consider issues from multiple perspectives, gain insight from industry leaders, link up with networks and emerge with a portfolio of projects. Structure An excellent full-time two-year postgraduate master course. 120 ECTS over 4 semesters. An integrated, research-led & job-oriented curriculum with lectures, tutorials, seminars, laboratories, workshops, working groups, mobile learning, field trips, internship and project-works. English is the official language. Students also have the opportunity to learn the local language and culture, to enhance their experience. Mobility is one of the master course’s features. In the first semester, students are based in Catanzaro (Italy); during the second semester they can choose to move to one location of a Partner of the FISD, where they stay until the third semester. In the fourth semester, they undertake an internship at enterprises/practices in Europe and come back to Italy to complete their research-based thesis. EU students may also visit a partner in a third-country. Consortium The reCity is implemented by a non-profit transnational Consortium named fisD - Integrated Higher Education of Design, founded in 2001 at Catanzaro, Italy. It is made up of leading universities, organisations, companies and non-profit institutions. The fis’D, through the Liaison Secretariat, welcomes students and offers a comprehensive service pack. Particular assistance is given for housing and integration into daily life, including special attention for equal opportunities and families. Scholarships are available for selected eligible candidates. A computer laptop (MacOS) or an iPhone / iPod is also provided to each student. Applicants should have at least a Bachelor's degree or equivalent (minimum 180 ECTS credits in three years) in related fields. Successful graduates are awarded with a joint Master Degree. The reCity Director is Ivan Alfieri. Duration 3000 hours in 2 years, 120 ECTS. The 2014 edition begins in December 2014 and ends in September 2016. The deadline is scheduled for 28th November 2014.

In other European languages, according the reCity mobility tracks - CEFR certification with a score greater than or equal to B2. In addition to the levelling course, during the academic year: - conversational groups will be instituted, conducted and moderated by a tutor, in order to motivate students to practice English; - if students require an IETLS test, they will be assisted (the cost for the test is not included in the participation costs). Moreover, to enhance their experience, FISD offers students language training at every hosting countries, starting with Italian in Catanzaro, continuing with other languages of the Consortium. These courses should deepen the knowledge of all selected students. But it should also raise the possibility to explore one of the most important parts of a culture, the language. This also will offer students the chance to gain competencies in local languages and to engage effectively with the communities they are living and working within. Funds and fees The reCity EJMC is partially funded by institutions, foundations, companies and/or individuals through donations. The remainder is funded by participation costs paid by the selected candidates. The participation costs for the 2014 edition of the reCity EJMC, are: - Category A students, € 8.000 per year; - Category B students, € 4.900, per year. Category A students are defined as students who come from a country other than an eligible applicant country (eligible applicant countries are all 28 EU Member States plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in one of these countries.
 Category B students are defined as students who do not fulfil the Category A criteria mentioned above, and in details they are students who are either residents or have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in one of the EU Members States, Liechtenstein, Iceland or Norway.
