Sustainability within the built environment is core to the UFP school of Architecture and Urbanism Master Degree Program and this is reflected strongly across its teaching and research methodologies. During the learning process the students will have the chance to cross the boundaries of architecture and Urbanism through a series of joint design projects with related disciplines like civil engineering and environmental engineering. At the end of the study program the graduate will be able to integrate the key theoretical subjects of the course within a conscious team practical competence on project design. This sequence will culminate in the end-of-degree project and a final dissertation.
The UFP Architecture and Urbanism Master Degree Program is composed by ten full time semesters, including a 200 hours emplacement, an end-of-degree project and the a final dissertation. Successful completion of the course curriculum is mandatory which implies de acquisition of the correspondent competences.
