A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

A Master of Science in Geology teaches students a variety of subjects, such as geological science, biology, physics, chemistry or ecology. This knowledge is necessary to understand the main focus of the degree, which is the understanding of the Earth’s composition, evolution, origins and processes.

Distance learning is a method of delivering education to students who are not physically present on campus. Various studies have shown that distance learning programmes can be as efficient and effective as conventional classroom programmes sometimes even better!

The EMerald Master programme was created to answer the urgent need expressed by the European Union to create a resource efficient Europe. As the EU recognised the importance of mineral and metal resources in our modern economy, it also realised that the raw materials industries were facing a critical skills shortage. The EMerald Master programme aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources at the beginning of a circle which ends by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of the urban mines (circular economy). -

Il Corso di Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria per l’Ambiente e il Territorio consente di conseguire una formazione scientifica e professionale avanzata con competenze specifiche di tipo ingegneristico negli ambiti interdisciplinari propri, attraverso un ampio percorso comune nel quale si consolidano le conoscenze ritenute più importanti per la figura professionale che si vuole formare. In particolare, dopo aver approfondito gli aspetti della modellazione matematica, le attività formative previste mirano a fornire una conoscenza approfondita dei metodi di indagine del suolo e di monitoraggio di ambienti a rischio di inquinamento o inquinati, delle tecnologie di intervento finalizzate alla bonifica dei siti contaminati, nonché degli aspetti modellistici relativi a processi e fenomeni ambientali riferiti in particolare alle acque sia superficiali che sotterranee. Si offre inoltre una preparazione sulla tecnologia dei sistemi informativi geografici, strumento oramai imprescindibile per un ingegnere che si occupi di ambiente e territorio. -
