Dual Degree programmes  

Students are encouraged to spend at least one semester in foreign Universities to complete their preparation. The following opportunities allow to spend one whole year abroad and gain two degrees in two years.

PLEASE NOTE: Although all DD programmes are activated, the number of participating students may vary every year. University of Miami: no positions available for A.Y. 17/18 (students enrolling in A.Y. 16/17).


The Dual Degree is offered as an option for students enrolled in the Masters Programme of Earth Resources Engineering. Students can select among two joint education Master Programmes with the University of Columbia, with the University of Miami, or with the Université de Liège.

Participation in the Dual Degree programme implies attending courses at the University of Bologna during the first year and at the partner University during the second year. In order to be enrolled in the partner University, students must have certified TOEFL (for both Columbia and UM) and GRE (just for Columbia) scores. 

The University might provide some fellowships to cover the expenses. Students following the Dual Degree with the University of Columbia will pay fees at the University of Bologna for the first year and at the partner University for the second year, while students attaining Dual Degree with the University of Miami or with the Université de Liège will pay fees to the University of Bologna both for the first and for the second year.

The selection of students to be included in the Dual Degree programme is based on merit and is made according to a call issued every year and reserved to students enrolled in the first year of the Master Programme.
