What does it train you for?
What does it train you for?
The course consists of two cultural profiles: the first is 'Agricultural Sciences and Technologies' (LM-69) and the second is 'Forestry and Environmental Sciences and Technologies' (LM-73). Students choose from these two classes when they enrol and make their final choice in the 2nd year. The course is suitable for all graduates in Forestry and Environmental Sciences, Agroengineering and Agricultural Sciences and Technologies and all those who care about environmental protection and the sustainable development of the territory, in line with the principles of the EU Green Deal and UN Sustainable Development Goals adopted by all United Nations member states in 2015. The course includes a common curricular path in the 1st year, while in the 2nd year it is organised into two profiles: LM-69 “Agroengineering Sciences and Technologies” trains graduates for the appropriate management of biotic and abiotic resources using precision agriculture systems and agro-engineering technologies applied to agro-environmental systems. LM-73 "Forest Sciences and Technologies" trains graduates to work in management and defence of forest resources, use and enhancement of forest products, planning and defence of the territory, management of agro-forestry companies.
What do you learn?
With a view to environmental, economic and social sustainability and climate change mitigation students acquire specific skills in each of the two profiles, to prevent and manage hydrogeological and environmental risk, manage and enhance forest resources (LM-73), use engineering and precision farming technologies (LM-69), plan forest systems and manage agroforestry businesses. Furthermore, the course provides GIS, green marketing and certification, natural engineering techniques, environmental impact assessment and environmental asset assessment, sustainable defence and biodiversity preservation skills. This Master Degree provides graduates with everything they need to solve complex situations related to the management of rural areas.
What can you do with it?
