Why this programme?
This course seeks to offer viable proposals for sustainable growth that do not stop the growth of the city. It provides tools for professionals who are already working in the field of territorial planning in general, and specifically, for all of those people who are specialised in making territorial planning compatible with the environment. The way an urban project is designed, how it is integrated into the territory and how it affects the environmental quality in the area are concepts that help make up an important part of sustainable architecture. Land use regulation plays a fundamental role on the road to a more sustainable future, which has been established by a series of public political research projects and strategies that have been carried out both here in Spain and in the European framework.

The time has passed when metropolises experienced out of control, disorganised and chaotic growth, a time in which the limited capacity of these areas to absorb new habitants and offer them the necessary resources for their daily life was not heeded. Nowadays, public administrations are working to guarantee the supply of these resources (water, electricity, gas, rubbish collection service) and have designed projects aimed at building sustainable cities. Among the instruments used to do this are the local agenda 21s. These projects include transversal politics that take into account everything from mobility, the landscape, and waste to urban structure.

In the case of foreign students or Spaniards architects; without knowledge of the Legal Framework for Planning and Urban Management in Spain, conducting matter Introduction to Urban Law Spanish, which provides a set of introductory content to ensure a common minimum knowledge base, useful for future realization is recommended the master.

Training Content

List of subjects
10 ECTS 60h
Planificación Territorial y Urbana
  • Once the theoretical and conceptual basics that guide development have been established, this module will turn to analysing the evolution of territorial and urban issues generated as a result of the industrial revolution and the successive instruments and planning techniques that have appeared to deal with these issues.
  • Analysis of urban structures and the elements of territorial configuration, as well as the study of current planning tools (legislation, plans, organising techniques territorial systems, mobility management, participation, etc.) that make up the core of this programme along with studies into new concepts and experiences from territorial planning.
  • This programme finishes with a module dedicated to government involvement and territorial organisation and will include the current debate over the territorial organisation of Catalonia, as well as a workshop about the development of case studies.
5 ECTS 30h
Gestión, Gobernanza y Políticas Urbanas
  • This module analyses the different land and housing policy models, from their historical appearance to the stated objectives when they were being created.
  • This class will deal with the relationship between land use policy and the real estate market, emphasising factors that, from an urban planning point of view, can influence the normalisation of the land market. As well, this class will draw on the study of different land and housing policies, focusing on critical analysis of the predominant policies: land market liberalisation, interventionism, etc.
  • It is from this perspective that the main elements of urban policy will be developed in the class (analysis of land and housing supply and demand, market accessibility, financing, fiscal policy, etc.). As well, it will include analysis of the current basic management tools, such as expropriation, obtaining land for free as a result of private management, land set aside for public housing, public land equities, market intervention, renting policies, etc.
5 ECTS 30h
Geographic Information Systems
  • Basic knowledge on geographic information systems, the structure of graphic and alphanumeric data, their components and working procedures. Relevant concepts on urban and territorial structure, working criteria and procedures, fundamentally to visualize them in a synthetic way on a municipal level, using maps.
  • Defining processes to explore and show different factors that converge in an environment, spatial relations and an integrating approach to many components yielding a qualitative improvement allowing to combine elements and make a synthesis of contents exploring urban information bases in a digital format and using computer applications based on conventional GISs Desktop aping (PC).
10 ECTS 60h
Sustainable Urbanism
  • The course programme is an introduction to the concepts of territorial and urban sustainability; its origins and evolution, references and strategies, and its applications when planning territorial systems.
  • The course also covers subjects such as urban models and sustainability, the historical evolution of land occupation models: Compact City vs. Dispersed City and the principles of ecological town planning and the entropy of urban systems, organizations, etc. As well as concepts such as climate change, new perspectives and urban resilience. Another concept is that of sustainable cities; materials, energy, balanced use of materials in urban planning systems and their interaction with the environment, air, acoustic and other types of pollution, mobility, green systems and energy; use and transformation of materials, polluting emissions, inter-city and environmental energy flows.
5 ECTS 30h
Urban Climate and Climate Change
  • Basic scientific knowledge on climate change and urban climatology.
  • Analysis techniques of the urban climate, in order to know the possible adaptation measures in the small scale and the implementation within the processes of urban planning, that is, in the large scale.
  • Workshops where proposals for measures of adaptation to climate change in small and large scale work groups will be developed, as well as a role play.
  • Outputs of field work with the taking of climatic measures and practical exercises, such as the preparation of Climatopes and adaptation and recommendation measures in urban planning.

5 ECTS 30h
Evaluación Ambiental del Planeamiento
  • Environmental control instruments.
  • Environmental impact evaluations and applying them to plans and projects. Integrated environmental authorisations.
  • Instruments for protection and management of natural heritage.
  • Networks of protected natural spaces, planning and management.
  • Biological corridors.
  • Protection of geological heritage. Management of unique habitats.
  • Organisation and management instruments for working with renewable natural resources. Environmental infrastructures.
5 ECTS 30h
Smart Cities: Urbanism and Technology
  • The course programme consists firstly of a review of specialized literature on Smart Cities in the era of knowledge, information and globalization, based on the information and communication technologies applied to governance, management and citizen participation.
  • Once the theory has been acquired, case studies will be analysed from the perspective of the six fundamental points of smart cities: economy, mobility, the environment, people, life and governance. The aim is to generalize the use of technologies to create more sustainable, digital, competitive and inclusive cities: this analysis shall include both the positive and negative effects that ICT's have on a city and a territory, from an economical, cultural, environmental and social point of view.
  • Besides the case studies, the course includes "hands-on" workshops on virtual cities and visits to institutions, spaces and organizations that collaborate with the cities and are part of this network of smart cities.
  • Throughout the technical program will be visits to places of interest related to the contents of the subject. During the previous year visits to TRAM, Bicing and Kisses Ecopark were performed. Tours are conducted in the mornings.
15 ECTS 80h

El CPSV, coorganizador del máster en Planificación Urbana y Sostenibilidad, evalúa los efectos de la isla de calor urbana en la Región Metropolitana de Barcelona
24-07-2017
Un equipo multidisciplinar coordinado por el Centro de Política de Suelo y Valoraciones (CPSV) y encabezado por Josep Roca Cladera, director del máster en Planificación Urbana y Sostenibilidad y del posgrado en Smart Cities: Urbanismo, Tecnología y Sostenibilidad de la UPC School, ha estudiado y determinado cuáles son los principales elementos que contribuyen a constituir la isla de calor en las ciudades a través de un estudio realizado en la Región Metropolitana de Barcelona, un área que cubre 164 municipios, 3.200 km2 y 4,7 millones de habitantes. El estudio también propone una serie de buenas prácticas en planeamiento urbano para paliar los efectos del cambio climático en las ciudades. El fenómeno de la isla de calor consiste en el incremento de la temperatura en el centro de las áreas urbanas, en contraste con la periferia o los espacios rurales circundantes , especialmente en horas nocturnas. Este hecho tiene un impacto en la salud y el bienestar de los ciudadanos especialmente preocupante cuando se producen episodios extremos como las olas de calor, cada vez más frecuentes. Las principales causas de la isla de calor son la falta de vegetación, la impermeabilización del suelo y el uso de materiales como el asfalto y el hormigón, que por la noche desprenden el calor acumulado durante el día, al igual que los vehículos y los sistemas de alumbrado y de climatización. El estudio revela que Sant Andreu, Nou Barris y la zona del Raval de Barcelona son los barrios de mayor vulnerabilidad al cambio climático y se estima que un incremento de 20 a 25°C de temperatura media en los meses de verano representa un incremento de 3.000 muertes adicionales. Las zonas más calientes de día son las industriales, así como el recinto ferial de Montjuïc y de centros comerciales; y de noche, las calles y las zonas más edificadas (Eixample y Ciutat Vella a la cabeza). En el estudio se han analizado el régimen de temperaturas de la superficie terrestre (LST), del aire (LSAT) y de transferencia de calor en la atmósfera, con los datos obtenidos a través de sensores térmicos instalados en satélites como MODIS y LANDSAT, así como de la base de datos Corine, además de la información disponible en las estaciones meteorológicas de la Generalitat y del Estado. Todo ello ha permitido configurar un sistema de información climática integrado, a partir del cual ha simulado los factores climáticos, geográficos, territoriales y urbanos que determinan la isla de calor del sistema metropolitano de Barcelona. Ante esta situación, el CPSV propone diferentes buenas prácticas en la planificación urbana y territorial, con el objetivo de hacer bajar 2° C la temperatura media en las ciudades. Como medidas preventivas proponen cambiar las fachadas de edificios y los pavimentos , especialmente en zonas de juego infantil (que alcanzan los 70°C con calor máxima), implantar suelos permeables, fomentar la ventilación urbana y aumentar las zonas verdes , entre otros. Desde la UPC se deja patente la importancia de que los planes urbanísticos tengan en cuenta la evaluación climática de las zonas urbanas y metropolitanas y se insiste en hasta qué punto un adecuado diseño urbanístico puede ayudar a disminuir la emisión de gases de efecto invernadero y los efectos del cambio climático en las zonas urbanas.

How to start admission
To start the enrolment process for this programme you must complete and send the form that you will find at the bottom of these lines.

Next you will receive a welcome email detailing the three steps necessary to formalize the enrolment procedure:

1. Complete and confirm your personal details.

2. Validate your curriculum vitae and attach any additional required documentation, whenever this is necessary for admission.

3. Pay €110 in concept of the registration fee for the programme. This fee will be discounted from the total enrolment fee and will only be returned when a student isn't admitted on a programme.

Once the fee has been paid and we have all your documentation, we will assess your candidacy and, if you are admitted on the course, we will send you a letter of acceptance. This document will provide you with all the necessary information to formalize the enrolment process for the programme.
