More information 


The Course provides advanced knowledges in those disciplines that analyze and understand the relationships between forest ecosystems and human activities. Through a specialized multidisciplinary education (biological, technical-engineering and economic), the student acquires full awareness of the complexity of natural, semi-natural and anthropic systems and the related problems that descend from the need to combine the management of resources and their protection, with a specific focus on forest and grassland ecosystems and water cycle, especially in mountain areas.
In the perspective of balancing the different aspects of management with territory stability and environment protection, the student is encouraged to acquire professional skills in forest and pasture management, protection and environmental requalification, landscape planning and urban and periurban forests management.
The Course is structured in five specializations: Forest and environmental sciences (SFA); Management of the environment and biodiversity (GAB); Design and management of green areas (PGAV); Land protection (PT); Productive valorization of pastoral and forest resources (VPRPF).
The Course is organized to provide technical and scientific skills necessary to contribute to achieving some of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
