Il corso in breve

Characteristics and objectives
The Course provides the most advanced knowledge in those disciplines that analyse and understand the relationships between forest ecosystems and human activities. Through a specialized multidisciplinary education (biological, technical-engineering and economic), the student acquires full awareness of the complexity of natural, semi-natural and anthropic systems and the related problems that descend from the need to combine the management of resources and their protection, with a specific focus on forest and grassland ecosystems and water cycle, especially in mountain areas.
In the perspective of balancing the different aspects of management with territory stability and environment protection, the student is encouraged to acquire professional skills in forest and pasture management, protection and environmental requalification, landscape planning and urban and periurban green areas management.
The Course is structured in five specializations: Wood science and technology (FL), Land protection (PT), Agroforestry systems (SAF), Biodiversity protection (TB); Urban and periurban green areas (VUP); ).
The Course is aimed at providing technical and scientific skills necessary to achieve some of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
