This double degree program focuses on sustainable landscape development as well as ecosystem and land-use management in mountain areas.
Our program is highly interdisciplinary and it is offered in cooperation with the University of Innsbruck (Austria). Both universities contribute their expertise in an integrative way to ecological, engineering, and socio-economic perspectives of mountain landscape management.
The program takes advantage of the particular location of the partner universities in the Central Alps and includes both student and teacher mobility between the two countries. Courses will be taught by lecturers from both universities.
