Il corso in breve

Characteristics and objectives
The course provides professional skills to manage topics on urban/land planning activity, the mitigation of the hydrogeological risk, and the green infrastructures. The increasing frequency of extreme events calls for effective countermeasures. Among them, the green infrastructures are assuming relevance because of the landscape impact beyond the mitigation of hydrogeological risk and pollution.
The skills on the topic of applied planning, that is what to do and why, are to the competencies, that is how to do, on the technical countermeasures for the mitigation of floods and debris floods, and on the design and management of the green areas. This is an interdisciplinary course on applied planning, agriculture, forestry, and engineering. The interdisciplinary approach prepares the facing the problems that urban development and climate change pose to the environmental sustainability and to the land. The interdisciplinary character of the course widens the skills and the employment opportunity.
The course offers two alternative curriculums, which are specifically focused on occupational specializations. These two curriculums are as follows: i) Protection and enhancement of the land; ii) Landscape, parks, and gardens.

Occupational opportunities
Such a degree allows both the work in private companies and public institutions/authorities (municipality technical offices, environmental and hydrological services….) involved in the land management and protection, as well as the green management and development. In particular,
the graduate is highly capable of planning urban and extra-urban areas for increasing their resilience to extreme events in a changing climate (1); design of technical countermeasures against extreme events. As floods and debris floods (2); for the survey and mapping of the land using new technologies (3); for the design, management, and maintenance of the green infrastructures. After graduation, further professional certifications are allowed: junior agronomist/forester (Section B, according to the Italian law), junior architect and planner (Section B, according to the Italian law), graduated building surveyor (training period automatically approved), qualified agricultural technician.

From Bachelor's degree to Master's degree
The course permits access to all MSc degrees in Italy, which are in the topic class LM-48 Land, urbanistic and environmental planning, and in the class LM-03 Landscape Sciences. It allows the access, after possible integration with complementary teaching modules to the following MSc courses: a) Scienze forestali e ambientali (LM-73; Forest and environmental sciences), 'Forest science (LM-73; held in English), Scienze e tecnologie per l’ambiente e il territorio (LM-75; Land environment science and technology), Ingegneria per la Sicurezza Civile ed Industriale (LM-26 Civil and Industrial Safety Engineering), Environmental Engineering (LM-35 Environmental Engineering), Water and Geological Risk Engineering (LM-35 Environmental Engineering).
