The course aims to train professionals capable of responding to the different needs expressed by the construction and land management and protection sectors, through a preparation particularly oriented to the practical and applicative aspects, with several specific laboratory activities. Starting from the second semester of the first year, this professionalising training course includes a basic preparation that leaves room to disciplines in the field of construction and the environment, architecture and urban planning, providing targeted skills to design activities, detection and document restitution of properties, execution of cadastral practices, estimates and appraisals, coordination and construction management, as well as supplementary and optional activities that complete the training framework of a versatile and modern professional.

Characteristics and objectives
'Digital technologies for building and land' is a three-year degree course professionally oriented. In order to enter the Course, a secondary school diploma is necessary, or another suitable diploma obtained abroad. The degree course aims to train a modern and flexible professional, who will be able to deal with nowadays needs raised by construction and land sectors. The course is addressed to young people aiming to enter quickly the world of work.
The Degree Course aims to respond to the new challenges posed by the construction field, in particular the evolution driven by the digitization of the building process, which involves both the collection and analysis of building data and their related translation into practice. Compared to the past, when new buildings represented a large part of the economic and working opportunities, today it is necessary to act mainly on existing buildings, most of which were realized before energy savings and seismic retrofitting prescriptions. Dealing with already existing buildings requires a plurality of skills, paying a particular attention to the new digital technologies which allow a better information management and its efficient transversal sharing.
The training path is mainly devoted to practical aspects. The common denominator of the activities is the technological declination of the various disciplines. The analysis and restitution of the natural and built environment are conducted through innovative techniques of digital survey and representation (CAD and BIM), numerical cartography and GIS, remote-controlled systems and digital earth. The design and intervention aspects of the buildings are addressed through a technological design taking into account sustainability and circular economy. To complete the education activities, there will be courses on topics of particular relevance, such as urban planning and smart cities, applied geology and disciplines that involve hydraulic management and protection of land and landscape.
It is worth to point out the significant presence of laboratories (48 CFU). In this context, specific activities are reserved for the topics of safety coordination and energy certification, with the intention of providing the future graduates with qualifications that are immediately exploitable in the world of work. Finally, the third year is entirely dedicated to the traineeship (48 CFU) and the final exam. The long traineeship (carried out in technical firms, companies, construction companies or public bodies) and the development of the thesis represent, for the student, the opportunity to apply the digital technologies and knowledge acquired in order to face real problems.

Occupational opportunities
Graduates in 'Digital technologies for building and land' will be able to manage private practice in individual or associated form, work at engineering and architecture offices, be employed within public and private institutions dealing with construction and building management. Further, graduates will have the possibility to work in real estate agencies, offices collecting and processing building market data, notary offices, risk and safety analysis offices, licensing and performance measurement institutions, including energy performance assessment.
