The course aims to present the main issues related to sustainability at urban and territorial level.
In particular, it deepens the main institutional competences and the related procedures. The course also illustrates virtuous experiences on the international scene.
Students will have to be able to analyze the Plans and Programs and formulate logical links between them, developing a greater sensitivity towards the disciplines of the territory.
Sustainable Planning aims to:
- Analyze planning and programming tools and distinguish the different themes present in urban realities
- develop greater sensitivity towards the territorial discipline
- propose and compare choices of social and economic redevelopment and revitalization of the territory
- evaluate sustainability in all its dimensions.
The course will lead the student to:
- present and integrate the fundamental planning issues in the civil-construction-environmental field, useful for the engineering activity;
- develop key-topics (through works on case studies) stimulating a greater awareness of the various critical issues and solutions.
As a master's course in the civil-construction-environmental sphere, the student must have acquired, during the Bachelor course, the following knowledge necessary to tackle the topics of the course:
- techniques and methods of the study of the territory
- basic engineering notions.
The 40-hour teaching consists of lectures, followed by guided thematic works, required by single student or by small groups of students.
The program includes the presentation and discussion of the following topics:
- Sustainability: milestones, Agenda 21 and best practices
- Sustainable waste management
- Slow and responsible tourism
- Territorial safeguard against hazards
- Strategic planning: tools and monitoring
- Port sustainability and waterfront renewal
- Urban Sustainable Mobility Plan

All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
The exam is constituted by an oral test.
Basically, it consists of two parts:
- the first: the exposition of the topics illustrated during the lessons
- the second: the presentation and subsequent discussion of the results acquired on a chosen topic, that is considered as an integral part of the oral test.
There will be 3 exam sessions for the winter session (mid-January-February-March) and 3 exam sessions for the summer session (June, July and September).
The assessment will be carried out through an oral test, in which the overall subject knowledge and the group work carried out during the course will be evaluated.
The oral exam will mainly focus on the topics dealt with in the lectures and will have the purpose of evaluating not only if the student has reached an adequate level of knowledge, but if he has acquired the ability to critically analyze territorial problems.
Working students and students with SLD, disability or other special educational needs certification are advised to contact the teacher at the beginning of the course to agree on teaching and examination methods that, in compliance with the teaching objectives, take into account individual learning modalities.
