2. General presentation of the study programme

Environment and Land Planning are two terms that encapsulate the complex set of problems dealing with interaction between Man and Nature, which draw their origin from the pressures of society organizing its development by exploiting natural resources. The disciplinary fields of the Environment and Land Planning Engineering therefore concern, first and foremost, the descriptive characterization of the spaces in which we live, the resources we use (water, air, soil, biota) and theprocessesthatgoverntheiralterationsandquality. Then, the methods and tools to foresee their evolution, their possible degradation and the potential risks that may deriveforhuman society.

Problems relating to the organization and safeguard of the territory, the management of natural resources, and the protection and restoration of the qualityoftheenvironment(water,air,soil,biota)thereforerequire,inorderto be solved, technicians with a specific preparation to operate in this strategic and increasingly topical sector. Politecnico di Milano has responded to this need by instituting, as early as 1983, a degree course specifically dedicated to these issues, which has been called Environmental and Land Planning Engineering (IAT) since 1990. The course trains engineers with an interdisciplinary background oriented towards the analysis and description of the environment, the territory and the phenomenology of their alterations, as wells as the design and evaluation of technical interventions to achieve a sustainable development of human society.


3. Learning objectives

The Course of Study in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering aims to train engineerswith an interdisciplinary background, with adequate skills in the analysis of environmental phenomena and in the design of the necessary measures to control the problems related to the interaction between man and his environment.

The course is divided into 2 levels leading to a Degreea nd a Master's Degree respectively. The Degree provides adequate preparation for the analysis and solution of problems requiring the application of standard and consolidated tools, sufficient to address the issues that most frequently affect professional practice. The training course is thus oriented towards the acquisition of the basic tools common to the various fields of action of the Environmental Engineer. The study curriculum introduces some examples of applications related to soil protection and prevention of natural hazards, land planning and management, and environmental remediation technologies.

In this general context, the overall course of studies includes the following learning objectives:

  • develop application skills with laboratory and internshipactivities,
  • develop independent judgement skills by developing reports and deliverables in which different solutions are compared and critically evaluated,
  • provide adequate knowledge of the latest technological developments,
  • give a comprehensive overview of the main issues related to environmental protection,
  • use simulation and optimization tools to inform efficient choices.

Morespecificlearningobjectivesofthedegree programmeare to provide:

  • a sound basic preparation in the mathematical, physical and chemical disciplines;
  • the basic knowledge of the processes for identifying and preparing land protection interventions;
  • the elements for the description and understanding of water, air and soil pollution phenomena;
  • the basic knowledge to use cartographic tools and develop simple environmental information systems;
  • the basic knowledge useful for land planning and management;
  • the tools to develop simple strategies for the rational management of natural resources and ecosystems;
  • the elements for assessing the environmental impact of major works, land use plans and new legislation;
  • the necessary tools to design engineering works of limited complexity and to manage the interventions required for land defense (hydrogeological and seismic risks);
  • an adequate overview of technologies suitable for water, air and soil quality restoration.

 


4. Organization of the study programme and further studies

4.1 Structure of the study programme and Qualifications

The Bachelor of Environmental and Land Planning Engineering has two levels as shown in the diagram below.

The training path of the degree consists of a common core of five semesters encompassing a blend of basic, characterising and related courses, which are considered necessary to address problems of analysis of environmental processes and land planning at different spatial and temporal scales. These subjects are aimed at acquiring in-depth and sound knowledge of the basic training disciplines, such as mathematical analysis, geometry, physics, computer science and chemistry. These are supplemented by a further common core of characterising and related teachings that are indispensable for the training of the Environmental Engineers or the continuation of studies in the Master’s Degree. In the last semester of the third year of the course, examples of applications of consolidated intervention and management techniques are proposed, addressing the solution of specific environmental problems: this is realised by offering three groups of lectures freely chosen by the students, indicated in the Study Manifesto as Group 1, Group 2 and Group 3 lectures. These subjects refer to the following application areas:

  • Group1:landprotectionfrom hydrogeological and seismic risk;
  • Group2: spatial planning, natural resource management and the design of environmental and spatial information systems;
  • Group3:engineering interventions for the prevention and remediation of water, air and soil environmental impairment.

Environmental and Land Planning Engineering - Programme organization chart

The subjects on offer are designed to enable students to deepen their knowledge by coming into contact with professional reality both through special teaching workshops and through technical visits to plants and industries organized as part of the various courses. There is also the possibility of internships and apprenticeship activities during the final year, so as to allow students to gain concrete professional experience already during the training period.

Politecnico di Milano also offer sample opportunities to participate in mobility programmes for students, such as the European Union's Erasmus programmes, which allow students to follow a recognised period (3-12 months) of study in a foreign university while receiving a scholarship.

4.2 Further Studies

The qualification grants access to "Laurea Magistrale" (2nd degree), "Corso di Specializzazione di primo livello" (1st level Specialization Course) and "Master Universitario di primo livello" (1st level University Master)


The first level degree allows access to the Laurea Magistrale (Master's Degree), which provides for the development of training courses aimed at deepening and acquiring specialized skills in the areas of interest.

The Master's Degree in Environmental and Land Engineering provides four recommended curricula consistent with professional profiles working in the following areas:

  • Land Protection and Natural Hazard Prevention,
  • Natural Resources Planning and Management
  • Environmental Protection and Remediation Technologies,
  • Environmental Monitoring and Diagnostics,
  • Environmental Engineering for Sustainability.

The topics of the first three areas are briefly described in Section 4.1, with reference to the teachings of Groups 1, 2 and 3. The fourth focus area concerns the control, monitoring and observation of the Earth system at different spatial scales, through the design of sensors and detection systems. The fifth area concerns both the expected effects of natural hazards and human activities on the complex of environmental components (air, water, soil, biota) and their mitigation.

The track 'Environmental Engineering for Sustainability' is offered entirely in English, while the others feature some courses in Italian.

 


The Master's Degree course is configured as an "open system" capable of accepting both (first-level) graduates in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering and graduates from other courses in the field of engineering and science and technology. Similarly, graduates in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering can also continue their studies in related Master's degree courses.

Admission to the Master's Degree is not automatic, but subject to certain constraints established by the School of Civil, Environmental and Land Planning Engineering, published on the School'swebsite (http://www.ingcat.polimi.it) and set out in the Didactic Regulations of the Master's Degree Course in Environmental and Land Engineering in section 6.1 'Admission Requirements'.

The degree also allows access to 1st level Master's degree courses, offered by Universities and Institutions in sectors related or complementary to Environmental and Territorial Engineering. After obtaining a Master's degree it is possible to access 2nd level Master's degree courses and to compete in PhD courses, organised in various scientific fields directly related to environmental and territorial issues. At Politecnico di Milano there are, for example, PhDs in Environmental and Infrastructure Engineering, in Science, Technology and Policy for Sustainable Change, in Information Technology, and in Structural, Seismic and Geotechnical Engineering. The PhD courses are developed over a period of at least three years, during which the student must acquire 180 additional credits, 25 of which relate to basic research training. During the course, the student is involved in specific scientific and technological development projects of national and international interest, developed in collaboration both with research organisations and institutions and within the framework of agreements with companies and engineering firms.
