The main objectives are that students: a) understand the evolution of the concept of development and how it is translated into indicators and instruments; b) seize the fundamental idea of sustainability based on real facts of not sustainability and not through concepts tampered ideologies, c) understand what science is and how it interacts with society and the real; d) seize the differences between a master's and a bachelor, and between a master and a PhD.
The learning objectives are designed to empower students to connect the theoretical concept of development with indicators and operational models of regional development, to enable students to understand the concepts of sustainability from the phenomena of unsustainability. The aim is to move from a perspective that became markedly idealistic and ideological to a posture that is based on reflections and interpretations of actual events and enable students to begin to understand the territory of different disciplinary perspectives - economic, environmental, engineering and planning - so not only design strategies and integrated and integrative policies but also to identify the scientific issue whose outcome adds value to the sustainable development of people and places.
