The MS Geophysics programme at The University of Milan aims to provide an in-depth broad-spectrum preparation in geophysics, based on a solid knowledge of physics and geological sciences.



The specific objective of the Laurea magistrale (MS degree) in Geophysics at The University of Milan is to train master's doctors who have the ability to:

  • develop and apply mathematical and numerical models of geophysical and environmental systems and processes involving atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere and interior of the Earth;
  • design and carry out geophysical observation and exploration of the planet Earth at different scales, with particular reference to geophysical surveys applied to the environment, cultural heritage, civil and infrastructural engineering, research and exploitation of natural resources;
  • analyse and design activities for the mitigation of natural and environmental risks, also aimed at intervention in the prevention and emergency phases, independently or in working groups together with professionals with other specializations.
