Master programs and postgraduate higher education courses in environmental resources are attended by men and women, boys and girls who want to make a job of their passion for the environment, energy and the planet. In fact these specialization programs are addressed to graduates and young professionals interested in energy resources, sustainability, valorization of the territory. Basic training is usually a degree course, bachelor or master degree, in technical science but there are business graduates or humanities who choose then to give to their career a cut related to environmental resources, energy sources, agribusiness. These paths offer students a very specific and technical preparation but there are lessons related to management as well. Students can find in classroom fellows from many different career paths or academic background, but all share a passion for environment and its preservation.
