Mission and Goals

This Master of Science programme, taught entirely in English, aims at preparing high level professionals that can deal with a variety of problems common to all development and resource exploitation plans. Their expertise will range from the knowledge of modelling of land and ecological systems, to acquisition and analysis of relevant data, geo-referencing and geo-processing, to pollution abatement technologies and reclamation plans. Students following this programme may either specialize in Geomatics or Environmental Engineering with particular emphasis on sustainable development and water resources.

Career Opportunities

In addition to the classic professional opportunities for Environmental and Land Planning Engineering, studying Geomatic Engineering in depth allows to work in national or local bodies involved in cartography, land registries and collection of land data or in the aerospace and ICT industries involved in the management of territorial databases. On the other side, graduates with a deeper knowledge in Environmental Engineering can also found opportunities in the field of international relations, large multinational corporations and in non-governmental organizations.
