The Degree in Sustainable Building Engineering familiarises students with the knowledge and the skills to ensure a sustainable future both for existing buildings and for those they will design and build. Today, the delivery of sustainable built environments continues to be among the major global priorities of our era. The main purpose of this degree will be to update traditional, worldwide appreciated, Italian civil and architectural engineering skills, embracing greater sensitivity to environmental protection with a marked emphasis on sustainable development. In light of the above, this degree is dedicated to students from abroad, especially those where Italian building and environmental engineering consultants or companies have designed and built major private and public buildings. This degree is especially dedicated to forming professionals that are ready to take on different projects either locally or on an international scale. At the design phase, a sustainable building engineer is ready to develop and control sustainable design strategies in architecture and urban planning; during the construction process, he/she can use sustainable and recycled materials, minimize waste flows and avoid damage to the urban surround or the natural environment. As a facility manager, he/she knows how to reduce the energy demand, alternatively use other natural resources, and propose fitting solutions using a sustainable approach. This program also provides students with the scientific knowledge needed to obtain appropriate technical and operational training in the fields of Architectural and Environmental Engineering, whose major target is the organization, protection, and modification of the built environment and territory, for settlement purposes. Another target of this course is the acquisition of analytical skills to recognize, understand, plan and design under complex environmental conditions. By teaching the multiple activities of management, design, development, and production at the different operational scales at the core of the building industry, this course is intended to provide students with the basic knowledge needed to transform a territory in all its physical, economic, social and morphological aspects, from a sustainable point of view. The curriculum initially covers basic subjects, such as physics, mathematics, engineering geology, and building representation. It then goes on to include application and intervention techniques in multidisciplinary fields of sustainable building engineering, such as urban planning, architectural technology, hydraulics, hydrology, environmental engineering, planning, structural mechanics, structural techniques, geotechnics, and road construction, taught stressing the specific aspects of sustainable development. Also taught are the principles of environmental health and materials technology for sustainable construction. Hence, the Sustainable Building Engineer will be able to deal with the many complex problems of building engineering, from design to work management, with a special focus on environmental protection and environmental risk prevention.
