The IFLA - International Federation of Landscape Architects describes the professional figure of the landscape architect as follows: 'The landscape architect plans and designs urban and rural landscapes in space and time, based on the natural characteristics and historical and cultural values of the area. To this end he refers to aesthetic, functional, scientific and management methods and principles, with appropriate use of both natural and man-made techniques and materials..

Thanks to the teachings offered, the degree course aims to train the professional figure of the landscape architect, who integrates knowledge and skills in the field of landscape design and management at different scales. The structure of the course of study encourages the acquisition of the ability to collaborate with other professional figures from the fields of architecture, engineering, and natural and agronomic sciences.
