In an increasingly computerized national and international context, archaeology also needs experienced professionals who combine their traditional humanistic skills with advanced technological abilities, such as the use of GIS, remote sensing, photogrammetry, geophysics and 2D and 3D modelling.
Given the period of economic crisis, archaeologists cannot be satisfied with their basic training, but must specialise by learning innovative technologies in order to be competitive on the market.

Foreign graduates from EU and non-EU countries are also admitted if their qualifications are deemed by the Master’s Board of teachers to be equivalent to those required of Italian citizens.
Fields of work
Graduates of the Master in Geotechnologies for Archaeology (GTARC) will find their natural place in organisations that produce and/or use geological, geographical and archaeological information: research and training institutes, large professional studios of Architecture, Engineering and Applied Geology. Possibility of working also as a freelancer in association with other professional figures (geologists, architects, engineers).
The professional figure trained during the master’s course in Geotechnologies for Archaeology can be employed in public bodies such as Ministries, Superintendencies, local administrations and research institutes that are involved in the investigation, protection and enhancement of archaeological sites. Increasingly, it is also finding a place in private companies in civil and natural engineering, landscape architecture, construction companies, and archaeological societies dealing with preventive or emergency archaeology. Co-operatives of archaeologists are becoming increasingly successful in the professional world for interventions in the enhancement of the archaeological heritage and in archaeological risk assessment.
