Master of Science in Environmental Geotechnologies – A.Y. 2020/2021

  /    /  Master of Science in Environmental Geotechnologies – A.Y. 2020/2021


Environmental Geology is a multidisciplinary field of applied sciences, closely related to Applied Geology.

The technician dealing with the depollution of environmental matrices is an established professional figure. The remediation of contaminated sites and the protection of water resources are among the main problems in our country. The disposal of solid urban and industrial waste is now a subject of primary interest for the community and businesses, which are experiencing a period characterised by both the consolidation of theoretical and applicative knowledge and the development of new technologies with the massive involvement of geology and hydrogeology.

The specialist in Environmental Geology, in addition to the possibility of practising as a freelance professional, will be able to work in public bodies and local and national private companies. Even international organisations operating in developing countries often require figures with this type of preparation.
The constant emergencies linked to problems of industrial pollution and urban waste disposal suggest an increase in employment opportunities in both the public and private sectors.
