Information technology: Some courses offered by external organizations may be recognized by the Academic Board for the acquisition of 3 credits for computer skills if appropriate.
Students must define their Study Plans indicating those lessons (or activities) chosen for the achievement of the 12 CFUs. Students are invited to take advantage of tutor support in selecting which activities to include in the Study Plan; the tutor list is available on the Course Website.
Presentation of the Study Plan, usually compiled online through SIFA, may take place from the second year of the course, within the deadline indicated by the secretariats, and may be modified during the following year of the course. Students must submit Study Plans to tutors, who in turn will submit them to the Academic Board which will evaluate the appropriateness of the activities selected with the training course.
Preparatory courses in Mathematics and Chemistry are offered to students with little or no knowledge of basic mathematics and chemistry concepts.
In addition to teaching in the classroom and in the lab, each year the Edolo centre organizes a number of activities (conferences, seminars, courses, field trips) which, as well as offering an in-depth study of key issues for the management and development of mountain areas (agriculture, livestock farming, territorial marketing, icthyfauna, alpine wildlife, cultivation of berries and herbs, educational farms, floriculture, biotechnology, GIS for mountain landscape design, hydro-biology of alpine lakes, etc.) contribute to making the Edolo university campus a stimulating environment. 177 seminars have been organized over the last 5 years and were followed by over 16,000 people, of whom more than 11,000 online. The Degree Course in Conservation and Sustainable Development of Mountain Areas also organizes many supplementary courses regarding practical activities to be implemented in a mountain environment. In order to allow students to study other mountain areas, field trips have been organized to Austria, Switzerland, Trentino Alto Adige, Valle d’Aosta and Abruzzo. The degree course also promotes numerous cultural events.

THE NEW RESEARCH CENTRE
The new university centre, situated near the headquarters of the Degree Course in Conservation and Sustainable Development of Mountain Areas, houses further lecture rooms, computer and chemistry / biology labs for teaching and research and the Centre of Applied Studies for the Sustainable Management and Protection of Mountain Areas (GeSDiMont). The latter aims to promote, co-ordinate and develop scientific and applied research activities related to mountain areas as a whole, with particular reference to agro-forestry and environmental issues, working closely with all stakeholders. The cultural and scientific Centre aims to train Italian and foreign technicians and researchers in specific skills for mountain areas, through courses, seminars, conferences and research programs, collaboration and exchanges.
The new computer room, specifically designed for teaching, consists of 20 student workstations and a teaching post arranged according to a traditional classroom layout. From a logistical point of view the retractable monitors allow good visibility on all sides. Each workstation is equipped with 17 “LCD monitors and a PC with latest generation processor connected to Internet. Computer security and maintenance are guaranteed by the presence of a domain that requires user authentication and simultaneously distributes antivirus applications and services. For teaching purposes, the room is equipped with a 71-inch SmartBoard interactive whiteboard that allows the teacher to work on their computer desktop shown on the whiteboard, by using a pen or finger as if it were a touch screen , then saving the notes as required. If the whiteboard is not required a projection canvas is available and the projector can be activated with a remote control. To interact with students, the classroom is equipped with the SynchronEyes Teacher software that allows teachers to show their monitor on those of the students, or monitor students’ computers to follow their work, exchange files and data or for multiple choice tests.
The new Edolo Centre houses a teaching laboratory and a research laboratory with workstations and a number of places with an extractor fan suitable for performing teaching experiments. Laboratories are equipped with a wide range of equipment: analytical scales, technical scales, magnetic stirrer, rotary evaporator, microscopes, stereomicroscopes, sieve shaker, distillation units, ph meter, centrifuge, double ray spectrophotometer, refrigerator and incubator.
