Environmental protection and land management in favor of sustainable development are at the heart of this master degree course, the only one in this sector in Italy delivered in English; it trains professionals capable of designing and managing engineering solutions with minimal impact on social and physical-environmental contexts. Thanks to scientific and professional knowledge of the interrelationships between various physical, biological and chemical processes involved in complex environmental systems, you will be able to design works aimed at the treatment and disposal of waste and at defending the environment from extreme events, you will know how to prevent situations of degradation and risk to the environment, assessing and controlling the safety of the territory and environmental quality by safeguarding the protection of natural resources, operating in both public and private contexts.

Characteristics and objectives
The course represents the natural completion of the first-cycle degree in Environmental Engineering, with the aim of preparing a graduate who, through a multidisciplinary approach that considers different aspects, i.e,, legal, chemical and physical, geological and geotechnical, hydraulic and hydrological, is able to design and manage engineering solutions with minimal impacts on the social and physical environment. The ultimate goal is to train engineers with advanced professional and scientific knowledge on the interrelations between the various physical, biological and chemical processes involved in environmental systems or systems that interact with the environment; therefore, the graduates will be able to design effectively works aimed at the treatment and disposal of wastes (liquid, solid and gaseous), and those aiming at the defense and protection of land from extreme events; they will be capable of preventing situations of degradation and risk for the environment, to assess and monitor the protection of the territory as well as the quality of the environment in its various forms, to ensure the preservation of natural resources and restore contaminated environments, including the development of research strategies and / or technology transfer.

Occupational opportunities
The main professional opportunities, according to the various skills acquired, are: agencies and organizations for environmental protection and / or land management; public administrations, at the national, regional, provincial and municipal levels; companies and service companies operating in the field of the treatment of solid, liquid and gaseous wastes; public and private research centers; professional services, independently or in association with interdisciplinary professional groups; design and consulting firms; construction companies operating within the fields of land protection and environmental restoration.
