Free – the adequacy of students’ knowledge will be tested
|On site and online
The course allows for the deepening of knowledge in biology and ecology of organisms, habitats and monitoring, health and changes in the environment in which they live. The course aims to train experts in the management of marine environments and in the conservation of biodiversity and marine biological resources, with skills related to the monitoring of coastal marine environments, to the assessment of the marine environment health, to recovery interventions and “ecological restoration” of degraded marine environments, aimed at enhancing the sector of Blue Growth.
The course allows students to acquire the methodologies to study biodiversity, to carry out sampling activities in the sea, laboratory analysis and statistical data processing. Students will have the opportunity to gain experience through on-field activities (e. g., sampling activities along the coastal strip, scientific scuba diving and educational trips in protected areas, also abroad), and therefore to acquire the tools and advanced skills necessary to enter the profession of Marine Biologist.
You will be able to work within:
Laboratory and on-field activities are a keystone of the course: they are carried out within multidisciplinary laboratories and through exercises in the sea (also through scientific diving), with the support of research boats aimed at sampling activities (ACTEA mobile laboratory).
Students can attend diving courses for free and obtain the diving license. During the course, students will have the opportunity to carry out diving activities and to deepen their knowledge through educational trips in Italy and abroad (Italian or foreign MPAs, or at laboratories in the Maldives or in Indonesia).
A very stimulating and highly scientific training environment, an international “laboratory” with foreign students coming from all around the world.
