Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will have an in-depth knowledge of the national and international legal framework pertaining to the intervention, rehabilitation, and protection of the architectural heritage. They will be able to identify and expertly characterise architectural typologies and construction techniques throughout History.; They will be capable of documenting the phases of analysis, interpretation, proposition, intervention, and revalorisation. Graduates will be able to apply advanced methods of erecting and restoring buildings as well as to elaborate projects on heritage research. They will also have the knowledge and skills to do the following: (i) inspect, analyse, evaluate, and document buildings. (ii) apply criteria and advanced techniques of consolidation, replacement or renovation, as well as new technologies and materials, especially for resistant structures. Finally, graduates will have a solid understanding of funding and financial sources and be capable of budgeting rehabilitation and intervention works.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.

General regulations

Grading scale
In the Spanish university system, modules/courses are graded on a scale of 0 to 10 points with the following qualitative equivalence:
0-4,9: «suspenso»; 5-6,9: «aprobado»; 7-8,9: «notable»; 9-10: «sobresaliente». A special mention, «Matrícula de Honor» may be granted to up to 5% of the students in a group provided they have got a «sobresaliente». To pass a module/course is necessary to get at least 5 points.
In cases of recognition of ECTS, professional experience, cultural or sports activities, or student representation no grading will be recorded but, where appropriate, the word «Apto».
