The complexity of today's industrial and commercial buildings shows the importance of planning and calculating optimal installations. Traditional plumbing, gas, electricity and lighting installations and innovative safety and air conditioning measures and increasingly essential alternative energies are also found in modern buildings.

The UPC School's postgraduate course in Projection, Design and Calculation of Mechanical, Electrical and Special Installations is designed to meet the demand for engineers, architects and quantity surveyors wishing to specialise, update or broaden their knowledge in the installations field.

This postgraduate course includes teaching by professionals from the various sectors involved in installations: air conditioning, ventilation, plumbing, sanitation, solar energy, gas, electricity and other less common installations. It is a wide-ranging and comprehensive programme that provides an overview of the installations sector in buildings and industrial facilities.
