ENGEMA’s Master Consortium is aimed at students from academic and professional Master’s courses and seeks to contribute to the development of dissertation projects involving the sustainability themes. The activities are carried out as examining boards, made up of experienced and recognized researchers. The works submitted by the Master’s students will be discussed in a respectful and cordial way, focusing on discussions that allow for a positive contribution to the improvement of the dissertation projects.
