Brief overview of the course

Characteristics and objectives
The Course provides advanced knowledges in those disciplines that analyze 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 forests management.
The Course is structured in five specializations: Forest and environmental sciences (SFA); Management of the environment and biodiversity (GAB); Design and management of green areas (PGAV); Land protection (PT); Productive valorization of pastoral and forest resources (VPRPF).
The Course is organized to provide technical and scientific skills necessary to contribute to achieving some of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.

Occupational opportunities
The graduate can carry out tasks of planning, management, control, coordination and training in public and private structures working in territory planning and defense, in sustainable management of natural and forest resources, in protection of environment and nature, in environmental restoration and in care of urban green spaces and landscapes.
The graduate may take the relevant State Exam of the Italian Council of Agronomists and Foresters (Albo dei dottori agronomi e dottori forestali) in Section A - Agronomists and Foresters.
