Admission requirements and assessment of previously acquired knowledge/competences

Admission tothe 1st cycle degree programme in Environmental Engineering issubject to the possession of a secondary school diploma or other suitablequalification obtained abroad. Admission to the degree programme is alsosubject to the possession of strong oral and written Italian language skills,logical reasoning skills, knowledge of and ability to use the main results ofelementary mathematics and the foundations of experimental sciences. Candidatesnot passing the assessment for admission will be assigned additional learningrequirements. These additional learning requirements are subject to specific assessment.Students who do not complete the additional learning requirements by the dateset by the competent bodies and in any case within the first year of theprogramme will be required to enrol as repeating students in the first year.
Admission tothe Degree Programme is also subject to the assessment of knowledge and skillsin the English language, to level B1.More details can be found inthe Degree Programme Regulations.

Programme profile

The aim ofthis Degree Programme is to train graduates able to work in environmentalengineering, particularly in the field of the protection of the soil and theterritory, environmental techniques and technologies and geo-resources andgeotechnologies. The main areas of study include:

-environmental risk analysis, with reference to normal and abnormal conditionscaused by anthropic settlements and activities;
- open airand underground excavations, soil and rock logging, for the construction oftunnels and other civil and mining works;
-interventions for territorial prevention, protection and reclamation requiredas a result of natural and/or anthropic territorial damage.

For thispurpose, the curriculum is designed to ensure that graduates acquire:

- a suitablecommand of the methodological and practical aspects of basic sciences appliedto engineering;
-appropriate command of general engineering knowledge and tools and thoseapplied to environmental engineering, including: methods, techniques, equipment,systems and infrastructure for the design, execution, management and monitoringof works which imply modifications to the biosphere, with particular referenceto the layer of the earth affected by anthropic functions and current andpotential resources of interest to man.

In theirfirst year, students particularly acquire a solid common base of knowledge inthe fields of mathematics, computing, general physics and applied chemistry.Thereafter, the curriculum in years two and three are marked by their multidisciplinaryand inter-sectoral approach, mainly within the field of environmentalengineering, including learning activities in the field of civil engineeringand safety.The learning activities,including workshops, therefore aim to develop the students' knowledge andcompetence in geology-applied geotechnics, construction and materialstechniques, mining and underground fluid engineering, hydraulics and hydraulicconstructions, topography and cartography, chemical engineering and chemicalsystems. Graduates will complete their training with basic knowledge of thefields of economic and management engineering and one foreign language.

Course units

The course units are listed according to the chosen curriculum

Internship

The School of Engineering and Architecture allows students to perform an internship in order to get credits (CFU) included in the study plan according to the rules set by the degree programmes.
‘Curricular' internship is a learning activity included in the study plan. It can be compulsory or elective, depending on the degree programme, and can be performed both in Universities or other organizations, in Italy or abroad. Some degree programmes allow students to perform internships in preparation for the final thesis.
Graduates within 12 months after graduation are offered the possibility to perform an ‘orientation' internship in order to get a deeper knowledge of the work field.
Further details on the School website page about internships.

International mobility

As part of its educational opportunities, every year the School fosters programmes and international agreements enabling undergraduates and graduates to attend degree programmes , take exams, participate in company internships or research programmes in the most famous European and extra-European universities or other institutions.
Details about opportunities abroad at the International student office

Access to further study

It gives access to second cycle studies (Master's degrees) and to professional master's programmes.
