- Prepare geological maps, which are essential to territorial planning and to proposing strategies for sustainable development.
- Apply geological know-how to explore, extract and manage natural resources.
- Acquire a spatial and temporal overview of geological processes and their effects on the planet.
- Analyse and interpret field and laboratory data and observations using the proper techniques and instruments.
- Convey geological information in writing as well as orally.
