Features and aims of the course

We train professionals able to manage, in an integrated way, issues related to environmental degradation and to extreme natural events (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, floods). The course uniqueness is represented by its interdisciplinary features and by the link between scientific, legislative and managerial aspects, which are all necessary for the management of emergencies and environmental protection and recovery. At the end of the course, students will have specific skills in danger, risk and civil protection, in the area of prevention and mitigation of extreme natural events, in the management and planning of emergency, in sustainable development, as well as in the fields of management, conservation and recovery of the environment.
