Overview

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

This Environmental Sciences programme provides you with an elevated qualification and specialisation in the following fields:

  • the application of investigative methodologies and the design of recovery operations and environmental rehabilitation;
  • the evaluation of environmental resources;
  • the regional management and planning of coastal marine systems;
  • the evaluation and management of climate change issues and the dynamics of the Earth system as well as environmental interest technologies and cleaner products and processes.

This curriculum dedicated to Global Change and Sustainability focuses on preparing you to analyse major changes on a global scale, with particular reference to climate change. The programme combines bio-ecological, oceanographic, climatological, paleo-climatic, socio-economic aspects and statistical analysis and environmental modelling tools, providing an integrated interpretation of the reality of the global changes taking place during the current geological age.

Thanks to this approach, you acquire the tools you need to predict and evaluate future scenarios of change as well as plan actions designed to mitigate impact.
