Why this continuing education master's degree?
The Master's proposal extends the training for professionals dedicated to local development, involved in the management and transformation of cities (mainly in Latin America), emphasizing the exchange of knowledge and experiences, as well as the establishment of networks for cooperation and development.

It is a Master's Degree, promoted by the Department of Urban Planning and Territorial Planning and in collaboration with the Superior Technical School of Architecture of Vallès (ETSAV).



The motivations to raise it are:
  • The gap between the increase in the urban population and the need for technical cadres that adequately address the demands of governments to manage the city and the territory.
  • Growing importance of local governments in the urban and territorial processes of sustainable development, demanding specific training modules for their technicians. This is already one of the formative orientations of the Higher Technical School of Architecture of the Vallès, which aims to support teaching, research and technology transfer with a remarkable relationship with the world of Local Government.
  • Possibility of sharing the vast experience of urban and territorial management developed in Spain, Catalonia, and Barcelona during the last 20 years. The cultural proximity to Latin America and the Mediterranean that, in addition to facilitating the exchange of knowledge and experiences during the program, facilitates the consolidation of networks of cities, cooperation and urban research.
  • Social function to be fulfilled by the University, in an increasingly interconnected world, exploring the opportunities of research and joint training to help the transformation of living conditions.
Aims
  • General aim:
    • Train urban professionals for public action in the field of planning, planning and management of cities, territory and the environment, with emphasis on the exchange of knowledge and experiences with similar professionals in the Catalan context among the same professionals who attend the master's degree, establishing cooperation and development networks.
  • Specific aims:
    • Acquisition of technical knowledge from the understanding of cities, from the specificity of the framework of each cultural and political-administrative context.
    • To know and evaluate new proposals (good practices) of urban and territorial management through the transfer of knowledge
    • Prepare the professional for multidisciplinary work.
Who is it for?
Professionals in the areas of urban planning, planning and management, technicians of a local, regional or state government, non-governmental organizations and service companies, essentially involved with local development.

The master's degree requires a recognized degree: architecture, urban planning, engineering, law, geography, economics, sociology, etc ...
