Architecture and the Environment: Integration of Renewable Energy in Architecture

Master's degree. Face-to-face.


UPC School

Currently, the architecture sector should be fully conscious of environmental needs and respond with designs that reflect this conscious approach to sustainable human environments. With this approach in mind, energy is a very important issue, not only with respect to the use of natural energy sources, but also in the integration of these concepts into buildings and urban developments. This is really about recovering the positive technical and aesthetic aspects of integrating natural energy components into the architecture of buildings and the environment.

More information:


  • To train natural environment control specialists in architecture, with knowledge of how to use the techniques of lighting, climatology and acoustics usable with natural energy sources.
  • To offer the skills needed to work on design and evaluation of buildings and systems, when consulting for these issues or as a function of administrative control.
  • To train professionals to be able to select the best energy systems for specific situations involving buildings and their environments, to design the general characteristics of these systems and to formally and technically integrate them into a comprehensive concept of an architectural project.

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.
