The University Mediterranea of
Reggio Calabria (UNIRC) is an
Italian public research university
located in Reggio Calabria
Southern Italy.
It was founded in 1968, and is
one of the youngest universities in
Italy.

Sustainable Energy ↔ Environment
UNIRC combines its commitment in research and teaching: three areas
(Architecture, Engineering, Agricultural Science), are dedicated to the
territory, to the energy studies and to the green economy.
In the two emgineering Departments (DICEAM & DIIES) Educational Programs, Energy
is key: we yield courses at post-graduated level (M.Sc.) and for “Dottorato” (Ph.D.) that
emphasize the connection between sustainable energy production and environmental
protection.
Curricula of M. Sc. course in Environmental Engineering (two years, 120 ECTS):
•
Environmental Monitoring (courses on Remote Sensing, Environmental Data
Processing, Environmental Monitoring Networks);
•
Sustainable Energy Production and
Management (courses on Energy
production from waste and residues,
Energy from sea-waves, Energy materials,
Fuel cells, Smart grids)
Courses
are delivered in English for international students (e.g.
incoming Erasmus+ students)
During Ph.D. (3 years) students can participate in the advanced
research activities carried out in the departmental laboratories by invited
internationally renowned senior scientists.
Examples of advanced energy related projects ongoing at University Mediterranea:
•
Use of biogas in fuel cells
