A Joint degree program between Tuscia University & RUDN University

The purpose of the program is the training of qualified personnel in the direction of design, implementation and sustainable management urban green infrastructure. The disciplines of the program allow to obtain theoretical knowledge and practical skills both in landscape design and architecture as well as in environmental monitoring, assessment, modeling and maintenance of urban ecosystems and their components. The format of the program is in accordance with Russian and international educational standards and are adequate to the current market requirements.

July 26 – August 15, 2021, Registration is open

The 3MUGIS summer school provides students with first hand field experience examining anthropogenic impact sequences across conventional soil forming factors from Subartic to Subtropical climates. At the end of the program, students will better understand the social, climactic, and geographic factors that contribute to human soil modification in this region; the long-term implications of such changes; practical skills to perform in-field soil monitoring, soil mapping and remote sensing; and applied skills in identifying, implementing, and managing opportunities for urban green infrastructure development.
