Learning outcomes of the course unit
Considering that these professionals are also figures in charge of environmental monitoring and protection, the aim of the course is to provide a thorough preparation with respect to the main environmental problems they will have to confront with. In particular they must acquire the ability to process the information deriving from the control systems in place (water and air quality monitoring) and to define the validity of the prevention interventions applied or to modify them if they are not effective.

The course will also use seminars in collaboration with professionals from the various sectors and possibly guided tours.
