University graduates from the following areas: Architecture, Urban development, Construction, Civil Engineering or Design and International cooperation.

- Official Master?s candidates must hold an official Spanish university degree, or a degree awarded by a foreign university recognised by the European Area of Higher Education, and that serves in the country in which it was bestowed as a route of access to postgraduate coursework.
- Those candidates who have earned degrees through systems outside of the European Area of Higher Education do not need to have their degrees officially approved in order to apply, pending prior confirmation, on the part of the University, of their equivalence to the corresponding Spanish degrees, and of their accreditation in the country in which they were awarded.
Under no circumstances will this route of access involve the official approval of the candidate?s degree, nor its recognition or significance in any pursuits or endeavours outside of the Master?s programme.

In addition to meeting the legal requirements described in the access routes, the Office of Admissions will highly value:
- Applications that show sufficient prior training
- Transcripts from previous studies
- Transferring credits
- Descriptions of relevant work experience.

Priority will be given to candidates who have completed studies in engineering (preferably industrial engineering) or business management.

1. Students with an official European Union university degree:
- Original attested photocopy of your university degree or a document certifying that your degree has been recognized, or an original attested photocopy of the receipt for payment of the fee to have the degree issued.
- Original attested photocopy of the academic transcript of your university studies.

2. Students with an official foreign university degree (outside the European Union):
- Original attested photocopy of your university degree.
- Original attested photocopy of the academic transcript of your university studies.
- Certificate issued by the university where you earned your undergraduate degree indicating that the degree authorizes you to take postgraduate courses in the country where the degree was issued.

3. In all cases:
- Two ID-sized photos.
- Photocopy of your Spanish identity card (DNI) or passport.
- Updated curriculum vitae.
- Motivation letter.

The need for qualified professionals that can develop projects and manage urban planning processes in developing countries is clear. We can find the highest urbanisation ratios in the world in these countries and it is here where international cooperation is most needed.

If we add to this the impact of an earthquake, tsunami or a war, the situation is critical and intervention is required in architecture and urban planning areas, in order to know how to develop a plan of temporary developments and settlements, with quick construction processes that are efficient under extreme conditions; with the management of the existing resources, offering solutions that can be implemented in this type of situations where unfortunately we must work under different forms of pressure.

The purpose of the Master?s degree is to face these situations and it is aimed at preparing future architects and professionals to deal with regional planning and emergency construction projects, i.e., professionals that can arrive at these ?non-places? and can use specific tools to apply the appropriate strategies in order to help develop the communities affected by extremely poverty conditions;human and natural catastrophes.

Therefore, the aim is to establish the strategies and criteria for taking action in the area of urban planning, developing neighbourhoods and implementing architecture projects, while bearing in mind energy-saving systems and sustainability criteria in all areas related to materials and local cultures.

This Master?s degree is part of the ERASMUS MUNDUS European cooperation program, considered to be one of the most prestigious programs in the world. The MUNDUS URBANO program brings together the following universities: Technische Universität Darmstadt, Università ?Tor Vergata?, Rome, Université Pierre-Mendès-France Grenoble and Universitat Internacional de Catalunya, Barcelona, in order to develop a joint European Master?s degree.


Course is structured in three different parts:

The first term is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of the basic facts behind the three phases of cooperation: emergency cooperation (humanitarian aid), development cooperation and fourth-world cooperation (local action), in terms of urban planning and architecture based on criteria of sustainability and environmental protection.

In detail:
- Workshop 1. City Minimums. Urban Models
- Seminar 1. New Roles for Architects and Urban Planner
- Seminar 2. Globalization, Citizenship and Identity
- Workshop 2. Emergent Thinking
- Seminar 3. Urban Minimums. Urban Ecology and Sustainable Design
- Seminar 4. People and Societies
- Workshop 3. City minimuns:urban models
- Seminar 5. Other Modernisms. Transformation of Tradition
- Seminar 6. Integrated Process Housing Project
- Seminar 7: Sustainable emergency protocols: Crisis Relief Planning
- Workshop 4: A settlement
- Seminar 8. Parameters
- Seminar 9. Resources
- Workshop 5: Minimum cost design for an ExistenzMinimum

This experience gives students the change to do a professional internship at an international cooperation institution and/or a local organization with the aim of becoming familiar with the development and management of cooperation projects.

Internships are also complemented with a trip outside Europe to gain on-site experience and actively participate in a project in the development phase.

Students prepare a research project in the area of cooperation that reflects the multidisciplinary approach inherent to the development and management of urban-planning and architecture projects.

Salidas Profesionales

During the second part of the course (FIELDTRIP-INTERNSHIP), students will travel to an area affected by a catastrophe to carry out the corresponding fieldwork activities. Students that can not travel will participate in an internship in a local NGO.

Informacion Adicional


Students must attend a minimum of 80% of the theory-practical lessons.

The student will be assessed during each seminar. In January, the student will present a written report with the research base developed during TERM 2 ?STUDIO PROJECT to a committee, summarising the structure and contents of the thesis.

At the end of the course, the student will defend the thesis in front of the academic and/or professional committee, which is composed of sector specialists and experts
