Four leading European universities (UPC Barcelona, TU Delft, KU Leuven and IUAV Venice)* have designed a joint European Postgraduate Master Programme in Urbanism: Strategies and Design for Cities and Territories to be offered as of September 2005. The 4-semester course will constitute an international platform for urban debate.
The new joint programme addresses the contemporary urban and territorial condition. It focuses on the development of new design tools for critical intervention in worldwide contexts. Studio work forms the core of the course and students are required to study at least one semester abroad. The official language of the course is English (Spanish in Barcelona). Joint workshops and studio reviews complement the specific expertise of each of the participating universities. Moreover, the European network is strengthened by its well-established research and educational collaboration with universities in the Americas, Africa and Asia.
Appropriately qualified students are invited to apply by February 2005.
* Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC-ETSAB) in Barcelona, Spain; Technische Universiteit Delft (TUD) in Delft, the Netherlands; Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL) in Leuven, Belgium; Università IUAV di Venezia, in Venice, Italy.
