Features and aims of the course


The course objective is to train future engineers, expert in dealing with complex problems and in designing solutions related to environmental and land issues such as water and energy resources, soil conservation, pollution reduction, and environment and land protection. The training path combines theoretical aspects with field experiences, calculation exercises, and laboratory and design activities, and, through its multidisciplinary approach, it favours the acquisition of both, innovative and consolidated competencies in the field of conventional engineering, targeted to the transition towards a sustainable and circular development. The entire course is delivered in English, within an outstandingly international environment, so as to facilitate the acquisition of specific technical vocabulary that will prove useful in national and international contexts. The course has ratified a Double Degree agreement with the Catholic University of Washington and is considering to undertake similar initiatives with other important foreign universities.


The course will cover specific subjects related to:

  • chemical plant engineering applied to the environment
  • hydraulic engineering
  • renewable energies
  • hydrogeological hazard
  • structural geology
  • construction techniques
  • environmental geotechnics
  • geomatics
  • applied hydrogeology
  • territorial planning
  • impact of transport systems
  • slope stability


Graduates will have the opportunity to access work environments such as:

  • self-employment and offices run by associated professionals
  • public institutions or private companies and enterprises operating in the typical sectors of environment and land, soil protection, waste and environment/energy resource management
  • advanced training paths such as Ph.D. courses or a second-level master’s degree.
  • The professional profile fits in the sectors of consultancy and development, planning, design, implementation and management of structures and systems aimed at controlling and monitoring.


The excellent relationship between professors and students, the presence of tutors, and equipped classrooms facilitate the orientation and support of students during the entire learning path.

The didactic offer delivered completely in English, the collaboration between Italian and foreign professors, and the attendance of both, Italian and foreign students (which represent the 40% of enrolled students in the academic year 2018/2019) generate a stimulating learning environment and empower students to widen their interaction and communication skills.

The high number of exchange agreements and the opportunity to enrol in Double Degree programs with foreign Universities increase the internationalisation features of the study path.
