Educational objectives
Hide
The degree course in Geology aims at providing students with an adequate command of general scientific methods and contents, as well as with the acquisition of specific professional skills. Educational activities include: - courses and/or modules divided into lectures, theoretical and practical exercises, laboratory practice, field practice. Each of these activities is awarded with a sufficient number of credits; - seminars, group work, technical visits and internships in public or private external facilities: institutions, laboratories, companies, offices, construction sites; - Stays at other Italian and foreign universities, in accordance to international agreements too. The first part of the course is common to all enrolled students, while the second part provides a variety of curricula. Consistently with the educational objectives of the course, such an educational programme aims at training and developing manifold competences and skills for the profession and/or for doctoral education in the same scientific area. The course aims in particular at providing specific knowledge in the field of analysis, interpretation and three-dimensional modelling of the geological setting of the region and of the adjacent marine areas; it also provides for advanced training in the study and definition of models forecasts of geological phenomena capable of predicting danger/risk conditions(eruptions, landslides and hydrogeological instability, earthquakes), and also for the acquisition of basic skills for the analysis and modelling of Geo-environmental systems and processes, for the assessment and management of geo-resources for the assessment and prevention of deterioration of cultural heritage, for the evaluation and monitoring of volcanic activity.
Professional opportunities
Hide
Graduates might find professional opportunities not only in self-employment, but also in public Institutions, in the Geological Service, Parks, in companies of the land and environment sector, oil companies and in public or private research centres.
Final examination features
Hide
The final examination consists of the discussion of an original written experimental or theoretical dissertation, written under the guidance of a supervising Professor. The dissertation topics should refer to issues related to class specific subjects and applications. The final examination might include laboratory activity, field activity and/or internships. The Board of the Degree Course sets the criteria for awarding the final mark, which should take into account the consistency between expected and obtained educational outcomes.
