Mission and Goals

This Master of Science programme, taught entirely in English, aims at preparing high level professionals that can deal with a variety of problems common to all development and resource exploitation plans. Their expertise will range from the knowledge of modelling of land and ecological systems, to acquisition and analysis of relevant data, geo-referencing and geo-processing, to pollution abatement technologies and reclamation plans. Students following this programme may either specialize in Geomatics or Environmental Engineering with particular emphasis on sustainable development and water resources.

See the website http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/educational-offer/laurea-magistrale-equivalent-to-master-of-science-programmes/environmental-and-geomatic-engineering/

Career Opportunities

In addition to the classic professional opportunities for Environmental and Land Planning Engineering, studying Geomatic Engineering in depth allows to work in national or local bodies involved in cartography, land registries and collection of land data or in the aerospace and ICT industries involved in the management of territorial databases. On the other side, graduates with a deeper knowledge in Environmental Engineering can also found opportunities in the field of international relations, large multinational corporations and in non-governmental organizations.

This Master of Science programme, taught entirely in English, aims at preparing high level professionals that can deal with a variety of problems common to all development and resource exploitation plans. Their expertise will range from the knowledge of modeling of land and ecological systems, to acquisition and analysis of relevant data, geo-referencing and geo-processing, to pollution abatement technologies and reclamation plans. Students will increase their understanding of the functioning of ecosystems, learn how to assess the local and global environmental impacts of human activities, and apply advanced methods, techniques and models to identify, describe, quantify and develop integrated systems to support environmental decision-makers. The programme is organized around two main topics: Geomatics or Environmental Engineering, with particular emphasis on sustainable development and water resources. The first specialization aims at creating experts in surveying, monitoring, representing the land shape and processes in terms of information systems, while the second provides the future engineers with a clear understanding of sustainability issues and of their application in the current professional activities.

The programme is taught in English.

This programme aims to introduce students to the concepts of soil for the 21st century and is suitable for students wishing to pursue a career in land-based management or environmental protection.

Soils underpin the sustainability of terrestrial ecosystems and are key to food production. Soils form the basis of all agricultural production, but they also store water, mediate the impact of pollutants, provide biological habitats, have an impact on the accumulation of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, are involved in dealing with society’s waste, are a source of extractable minerals and provide the foundations for the housing and roads on which society depends.

You will learn about soil function and management, and soil classification, assessment and analysis, with a strong emphasis on practical skills. You will gain expertise in the relationship between soil and sustainable approaches to land resource use.

This programme is run in collaboration with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC).

Applicants who applied after 12 December 2016 receiving an offer of admission, either unconditional or conditional, may be required to pay a tuition fee deposit. Please see the fees and costs section for more information.

Programme structure

This programme involves two semesters of compulsory and option taught courses followed by a period of individual dissertation project work.

Compulsory courses typically will be:

  • Soil Protection and Management
  • Soils Science Concepts and Application
  • Dissertation

Option courses:

In consultation with the Programme Director, you will choose from a range of optional courses^. We particularly recommend:

  • Analysing the Environment
  • Analysing the Environment Study Tour
  • Culture, Ethics & Environment
  • Ecosystem Dynamics and Functions
  • Human Dimensions of Environmental Change and Sustainability
  • International Development in a Changing World
  • Principles of Environmental Sustainability
  • Principles of GIS
  • Project Appraisal
  • Atmospheric Quality and Global Change
  • Frameworks to Assess Food Security
  • Integrated Resource Management
  • Spatial Modelling
  • Ecosystem Values and Management
  • Environmental Impact Assessment
  • Land Use/Environmental Interactions
  • Participation in Policy and Planning
  • Sustainability of Food Production
  • Interrelationships in Food Systems

Courses are subject to timetabling and availability and are subject to change.

Field trip

An integral, week-long study tour lets you refresh skills learned on the programme and develop new tools and techniques, useful during the dissertation process. The tour has historically been held in Mende, France. In addition to the formal taught component, students had the opportunity to go rafting and visit the Aven Armand caves.

There may also be a short tour during induction week, to give students a chance to get to know each other.

Learning outcomes

Students will:

  • gain a knowledge and understanding of the relationship between soils and sustainable land management
  • gain an understanding of soil sampling and analysis, interpretation and reporting
  • be able to assess soil management issues and develop improved management plans
  • understand the function of soils in relation to sustainable land use and societal needs

Career opportunities

A recent report by the British Society of Soil Science (BSSS) identified soil science as an area in which there are critical skills shortages, meaning graduates will be in high demand.

Soil scientists are employed in a broad range of vocations including environmental consultancy, research, overseas development, environmental impact assessment and analysis, site reclamation and remediation, and conservation as well as advising on government policy, archaeological excavations and laboratory analyses, forensics, and landscape design.
