The first didactic unit (mineralogy and georesources) aims at providing the student with a basic knowledge of geological mineralogy, an introduction to the exploitation of mineral resources in the frame of environmental sustainability, and the use of geological materials in science, art and technology. The second didactic unit (petrography) aims at providing a knowledge of the behavior and properties of metamorphic, sedimentary and igneous rocks in the evolution of the planet Earth. The expected learning outcomes are the students’ ability to recognize rocks and minerals together with the perception of their meaning in terms of genesis and geological evolution, and the understanding of the use of geological materials in the context of a respect for the environment.
