Why this postgraduate course?
The public space has a strategic role in redefining new patterns of behaviour at the urban level. During the Postgraduate Programme in Sustainable Urban Design, students will be taught to identify the transformation processes and parameters that exert an influence when creating new urban, creative and innovative instrumental strategies, adapted to the new socio-economic-cultural scenario.

The effect of the sun and the amount of energy available in each case must be urban and architectural decision-making tools. The programme teaches students how to apply software to simulate, calculate and study solar radiation applied to urban planning.

The programme will enable students to acquire the necessary critical thinking to work on processes creating or modifying urban fabrics, based on an overall consideration of the factors involved.

Aims
To train specialists in urban behaviour, with skills to work on the design and assessment of the city.
Who is it for?
  • Architects, technical architects and engineers interested in obtaining a high degree of specialisation in the application of renewable energies in architecture.
  • Other university professionals that need to broaden their knowledge in this field.
