The University of Pavia and the School of Advanced Studies IUSS Pavia present a new international Master of Science programme in Civil Engineering for Mitigation of Risk from Natural Hazards. The programme is structured in two curricula:

Reduction of Seismic Risk (ROSE) Hydrogeological Risk Assessment and Mitigation (HYRIS)

Courses are taught in English by highly qualified professors with an internationally recognized scientific activity.

The Master in Civil Engineering for Mitigation of Risk from Natural Hazards is jointly offered by the University of Pavia and the School of Advanced Studies of Pavia (IUSS).

The University of Pavia is one of the oldest in Europe, founded in 825. Many renowned humanists and scientists studied and taught at the Alma Ticinensis Universitas, such as Cardano, a mathematician who found out the Cardanic joint and the solution of cubic equations, and Alessandro Volta, the inventor of electric piles. Nowadays, the multidisciplinary University of Pavia includes nine faculties, three campuses covered by free WiFi access and the largest Residence Hall system in Italy. The University Sports Center (CUS) offers modern training facilities for track and field, canoeing, rowing, volleyball, rugby, fencing, archery, sports for physically disabled persons, aerobics, basketball, swimming, and sailing....

Eligibility A Bachelor Degree in Architecture. The candidate is required to produce a portfolio. Mission and Goals

This program aims at providing a multidisciplinary background for architects, with a special focus on environmental sustainability and landscape design. The concept of sustainability is associated with a high-quality transformation of the landscape, from the macro-scale of urban planning to the micro-scale of technical details, how the varied scales connect and interrelate with each other. This method is oriented to a physical, social and technical approach, passing over a close specialized theme vision. The international program involves also workshops, study trips and summer schools.... [-]

Course description

The M.S. degree in Sustainable Agriculture at the University of Padova aims to provide advanced knowledge in the field of agricultural systems as well as skills to develop and manage sustainable production systems. The context is international, having as its main area of investigation warm-temperate environments at a global level.

The normal duration of the course is two years and requires 120 university credits (or CFUs). The Master degree in Sustainable Agriculture will be awarded upon completion of the course. With the aim of strengthening this global approach to sustainability, the degree program has been included in an internationalization project in collaboration with the University of Georgia, USA, which enables students to achieve a dual degree in “Sustainable Agriculture” (Italy) and “Crop and Soil Science” (USA). This course is also part of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees in Plant Health In Sustainable Cropping Systems, Erasmus+ Programme Key Action 1 (http://planthealth.upv.es) that is organised by a consortium of six Universities from four European countries (Italy, Spain, France and Germany)....

The sustainable development of mountain regions has to consider economic, ecological and social aspects. Currently, in particular, the environments of the European Alps are facing ecological (e.g. climate change, glacier retreat, hydrological changes) as well as land-use changes (e.g. urbanization, abandonment of mountain agriculture), the latter often driven by socio-economic reasons.

While human activities in the mountain areas should be economically viable and broaden opportunities for local communities in terms of profit and jobs, it also has to match the goal of contributing to improving the degree of conservation and renewal of biotic and abiotic resources at the ecosystem level, which ultimately represent, over time, the essential ingredients of sustainable management....

The Challenge

Materials provide the foundation of the modern global economy. They are becoming increasingly relevant for the shift to a decarbonising society as they enable the transition to renewable energy, electric mobility and resource efficiency, among others. Nevertheless, many materials are becoming critical.

Therefore, we need to develop robust solutions and game-changing technologies that allow for a sustainable stream of materials.

Sustainable Material Solutions with SUMA

The SUMA Master programme aims to train tomorrow’s resource engineers in collaborative work in a global world, gathering together some of the best educational programmes in the field of sustainable materials engineering in Europe. The goal is to ensure young scientists obtain a solid background in chemistry and physics, with competencies for designing and tailoring new material systems for specific functions, and with a specific view to the sustainability of processes and technologies in the field of material development. SUMA puts a particularly strong focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership and takes a holistic approach to the materials paradigm by exploring circular (eco) design, materials substitution, life cycle engineering and circular economy design, materials processing and recycling, manufacturing and innovation....
