Programme profile

The main purpose of the degree programme in Environment and Workplace Prevention Techniques is to train professionals who carry out prevention, assessment and control activities in the field of environmental hygiene and safety in living and working places, food and beverage hygiene, public and veterinary hygiene and health.

Graduates are trained in basic subjects allowing them to understand the most important elements underlying the pathological processes of adulthood in order to focus preventive activities there (i.e. the working population).

They must be able to communicate in English and Italian in their specific field of competency, exchange general information and understand scientific literature.

Professional skills are acquired through theoretical and practical teaching activities and through learning the expendable behavioural skills indispensable for professional activities. For the integration and qualification of professional skills, particular importance is paid to the practical training (internship) under the supervision and guidance of professional tutors.

At the end of the three-year programme, Prevention Techniques graduates will have acquired the knowledge and technical competencies to work professionally in public and private prevention services. Graduates will also possess the learning skills required to continue onto specialist studies.
