BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE ORGANISATION
The Deparment of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Trieste is a community of
about 100 faculty, 100 affiliated researchers and PhD students, 30 technical and administrative
staff, and over 2000 students, operates in education and research:
• Education. DIA offers four bachelor degrees (“laurea triennale” in civil and environmental
engineering, industrial engineering, electronic and computer science engineering, naval
engineering), thirteen master degrees (“laurea magistrale”) in disciplines covering the entire
spectrum of the engineering and architecture disciplines. In most of the courses of studies,
special attention is paid to energy and sustainability. Since 2010, the Department is the key
organizational body of the Summer School on Energy “Giacomo Ciamician”.
• Research. The faculty and affiliated researchers at DIA are organized in over thirty research
groups and laboratories, often operating in synergy and with a broad network of national and
international collaborations with other research institutions and companies. The expertise of
the research groups is applied to a number of transversal areas, such as: Energy and
Sustainability; Civil Engineering; Architecture and Spatial Planning; Biotechnology; Materials,
product and process design; ICT; Decision making science; Naval Architecture and Marine
Engineering. In particular, the Department regularly hosts and/or leads a number of research
projects (for a total of over 5 M€ over the past 3 years) dedicated to Energy and Sustainability.
HOW THE ORGANISATION WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DISSEMINATION AND EXPLOITATION OF THE PROJECT RESULTS
The Department of Engineering and Architecture will disseminate the results of the project
through its communication channels (University and Department websites, social media, office
of communication, office of dissemination), and through dedicated seminars or events in
collaboration with other partners.
The results will be exploited and tested through the University and Department’s educational
initiatives (e.g. Summer School on Energy “Giacomo Ciamician”), and – when applicable - will be
used to integrate the contents of relevant courses in MS and BS programs.
