This programme prepares architects to develop and rebuild communities affected by rapid urbanisation, poverty, conflict and natural disasters. Professionals involved in these areas need to
understand that their role in the complex system of international cooperation is to seek holistic solutions that combine both interdisciplinary knowledge and participation from citizens. The ever growing impact of climate change, military conflicts,rapid urbanisation and economic crises represents a clear need and opportunity for qualified professionals in both developed and developing countries.
Students are provided the necessary theoretical and methodological background, with an interdisciplinary and holistic approach that enables practitioners to manage projects ranging from
the urban to the architectural scale. This one-year programme forms part of the Erasmus Mundus European Cooperation Programme.
Due to its academic format and accreditation, students who complete a master’s dissertation will be able to start a PhD at UIC Barcelona or any European university after graduation. Students work on their projects throughout the academic year with the help of our Writing Workshop and one-on-one supervision meetings with knowledgeable researchers. It is important for professionals in this field to develop a critical perspective, enhance their writing and communication skills and improve urban development and emergency practices with their proposals.
