The Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering provides an education focused on the broad range of professional capabilities and expertise required to deal with and address adequate engineering frameworks for the sustainable utilization of natural resources and man made infrastructures. Our mission is to educate engineers who can design infrastructures and plan human development while balancing environmental health and the society’s need for better living conditions. Technical and scientific education is thus devoted, through specialized courses and laboratories, to the development, design and evaluation of proper management and intervention strategies, as well as individual measures, in the following general fields of interest: planning and design of strategies and infrastructures for land protection and prevention from natural risks damage and related anthropogenic forcings; management of complex environmental systems and of information systems for land management and resource planning; design and evaluation of engineering processes and technologies for environmental quality reclamation and maintenance, for treatment and resource recovery from liquid, solid and gaseous emissions and for soil remediation; design and data management of systems and components for environmental and land resources measurement, diagnosis and control.
The programme provides a full track in English (Environmental Engineering for Sustainability), which offers a panoply of specialized courses and laboratories addressing all the environmental components, air, water, soil and the biota, and the impacts due to natural hazards and to human activities, as well as their mitigation:
The main employment opportunities are in engineering companies, consultancy studios and land and environmental service enterprises; engineering firms for design and construction of plants for water and air emissions treatment, energy generation and waste disposal; companies for producing and managing environmental instrumentation, remote sensors and environmental monitoring systems and networks; firms operating in the construction and maintenance works and interventions for groundwater protection and purification; authorities and agencies for land, environmental, geological and energy resource planning and control, as well as in national and regional technical and cartography services.
