About

This Geoenvironmental Resources and Risks course at the University of Camerino provides knowledge at an advanced level and practical expertise in fields of Earth Sciences related to the natural resources and the environmental hazards, aiming to form a geologist able to operate with managerial competences.

Overview

During the study period of the Geoenvironmental Resources and Risks course at the University of Camerino, the combination of theory, practice, fieldwork and laboratory activities, as well as the knowledge acquisition of experimental analytical methods and data statistical processing and modeling, will contribute to the cultural formation of the students. To specialize in the area of interest, up to 28 credits can be chosen to build up a personalized study plan, together with the thesis (30 credits) which requires a semester of independent experimental (field/lab) and theoretical work.

Time is also dedicated to the acquisition of interdisciplinary knowledge, especially important in addressing environmental issues (like groundwater pollution, disaster management, sustainable use of resources, effects of climate change) and transversal competences and skills (use of GIS at advanced level, specific software and programming codes). Practical workshops carried out by geologists working in various fields will help introducing the students to the professional world.
