Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding

The student will acquire the knowledge of the systems currently used geological digital mapping, understanding also the methodological bases.

Applaying knowledge and understanding

The course is strongly practical. The student will apply the knowledge propre during all stages of the course and the term will be able to implement all his/her skills.

Making judgements

The student will also be able to work on projects, developing skills that allow him/her to deal with unexpected situations and find original solutions.

Communication skills

The student will be able to communicate in different ways (reports, presentations, etc.) the results and synthesisof his/her work. In addition to individual work, it will be important to the team work where students must communicate with each other. It also will encourage students to present their work at external conferences.

Learning skills

Since this branch of computer science applied to geosciences is constantly and rapidly changing, the student will be able to learn for themselves the new techniques and methodologies.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it
