Study at the Vanvitelli University. Consult the 2019-2020 training offer and choose your course of study

The innovation this year concerns the Department of Engineering with a new first cycle vocational degree course on Techniques for Construction, the Territory and the Environment - The course aims to ensure the acquisition of knowledge / skills / abilities necessary to practice the technical profession both in the business environment and in public administrations, without neglecting the practice of the profession. The programme, open to 50 students per year, aims to quickly insert graduates in the world of work and to preserve the valid cultural tradition of the role of surveyors, guaranteeing a formative continuity to high school graduates of the Technical Institutes with the “Construction, Environment and Territory” address.

The vocational course joins the four new degree courses, which began in 2018-2019, very topical, compared to the objectives they propose:

First Cycle Degree Courses:

Department of Mathematics and Physics with:

DATA ANALYTICS - The course is open access and is provided entirely in English. The course aims to make graduates acquire skills in theoretical and computational mathematics, inferential statistics and exploratory analysis of big volumes of data; of machine learning techniques for calculation; of methodological and applied tools used by information technology for managing databases and information systems; of programming elements; of modern software tools for data processing and communication techniques of results. Due to its international characterization, the course also includes the study of other European languages, in particular, French, being that this Course releases a double degree in conjunction with the Université Paris 13.

School of Medical Sciences with:

NURSING - The course is restricted access, students must pass an exam to enrol and is provided entirely in English.  With the proposal to establish a Degree Programme in Nursing, the University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli responds to the request for health care training of a multi-ethnic, non-Italian language speaking population increasingly seeking to gain access to qualified levels of study. Nursing represents a unique programme in Italy; a global training opportunity for specialized personnel from different nationalities who will be able to benefit from the training capabilities of our professors and to capably respond to the needs of a labour market that requires an ever-increasing level of professionalism. 

Second Cycle Degree Courses:

School of Polytechnics and of the Basic Sciences

Department of Engineering with:

ENGINEERING FOR ENERGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT - Sustainable development, which combines the need for considerable energy resources with the protection of the environment, is extremely topical and of global importance, even more so on the territory on which the Vanvitelli University insists. In this context, the activation of the Second Cycle Degree programme on Engineering for Energy and the Environment plays a crucial role, promoting the awareness that modern engineering can contribute to remedying mistakes of the past, laying the foundations for a better future. The aim of the course is to train professionals with specific skills, currently difficult to find in our country, necessary to face the complexity of the problems connected to the sustainable use of environmental resources and energy.

Department of Environmental, Biological and pharmaceutical Sciences and Technologies with: 

MOLECULAR BIOTECHNOLOGY - The course is open access and is provided entirely in English. The Second Cycle Degree Course in Molecular Biotechnology is designed to provide the cultural background of multidisciplinary biotechnologies for the production of goods and services using biological systems; in particular, the course prepares skilled graduates in the field of biotechnologies specialised in the study, prevention and diagnosis of human diseases, with particular regard to the development of innovative drugs. Cooperation with researchers of National Research Council Institutes (e.g.: Institute of Genetics and Biophysics - IGB; Institute of Protein Biochemistry) on teaching and research activities is an opportunity for graduates to acquire knowledge in a broader range of fields related to Molecular Biotechnology, and skills to operate in various areas of academic and industrial research at national and international levels.
