Water and Coastal Management





WACOMA Network

WACOMA network represents a wide spectrum of complementary academic and scientific knowledge as well as labour market and policy makers oriented to the water and coastal environment and the management of risks, significantly related to the needs of their territory.

The WACOMA Consortium is composed by 3 European Higher Institutions: the University of Bologna acting as EMJMD Coordinating Institution, The University of Cadiz and the University of Algarve. The three Universities have a long-lasting cooperation background, thanks to previous research and teaching joint projects and programmes they integrate knowledge and objectives.

The EMJMC Programme is carried out in collaboration with EU and Non-EU Academic and Non-Academic Associated Partners who will contribute with their knowledge and skills transfer, offering lectures, teaching modules and/or Master's thesis subjects and research as well as with internship opportunities.

By bringing together enterprises, non-academic bodies and Universities, WACOMA aims at consolidating and developing new synergies and cooperative efforts around a shared theme, namely water and coastal risk management, under the threat of new emergencies related to global changes. This wide partnership will ensure international visibility towards stakeholders and will enhance future prospects and job opportunities to graduates.

Quality Assurance

The University of Bologna’s Internal Quality Assurance System aims to improve the quality of its Study Programmes.

The quality of a Study Programme lies in its ability to provide appropriate solutions for the expectations of anyone who is interested in the educational services available: students, families and the world of work.

The Internal Quality Assurance System regularly gathers and analyses important information – such as the number of students who graduate in line with the regular programme, or the employment situation of graduates - and based on this, plans concrete improvement actions. It is to all extents and purposes a self-assessment system.

The Internal Quality Assurance system aims to:

  • guarantee that the quality of the teaching programmes is well documented, verifiable and assessable;
  • facilitate access to information, making it clearer and more understandable for students, families and stakeholders in the employment world;
  • promote a process of continuous improvement in Study Programmes.
