The PhD in Architecture offers a wide range of lines of research covering scales as big as landscape and urban planning to much smaller scales on innovative construction systems. It also covers content from architectural composition, history and heritage to topics that feature new sustainability materials, cooperation, citizen participation and public health.

This programme has support from one official master (the Master’s in International Cooperation (oficial)).

Another objective is for doctoral students to be incorporated in different research groups, in order to specialise and expand the specific content for each line of research. There are specific committees external to the university during the process of drafting the thesis, which guarantees research quality and increases the possibility of creating scientific networks surrounding each thesis, which is very helpful for doctoral students.

Research lines

Line of research architecture and projects

Responsible

Dr. Alberto Estévez Escalera

Objectives

The objectives in the medium-term of this line of research and the topics it covers are linked to the objectives and topics which each of the five research groups listed here are working on. These respectively correspond to the following fundamental profiled and research fields in architecture:

  • Architectural projects and design
  • The incorporation of gender studies into architecture and the arts
  • Architectural composition and history
  • Urbanism, territorial organisation and landscaping
  • Cooperation and architecture

Therefore, group by group the medium-term objectives are set out, as well as the topics tackled by each one, thus constituting the line of research which is presented here, overall: "Architecture and projects".

I. GRE- Architectural Heritage Research (AHR)

Coordinator: Josep Lluís
Members: Mónica López, Guillem Carabí, Ana Cocho, Diego Navarro

1. Romanesque architecture and Heritage

V. GRC- Grup de Recerca Arquitectura i Ciències Socials (GIRAS) in collaboration with the UPC

Coordinator: Josep Muntañola
Members: Magda Saura, Lluis Àngel Domínguez, Jaume Ferrer
Abstract: Architecture is based on three fundamental pillars: the project, the built territory and its historical and social use. It is analyzed how these three bases of architecture are articulated in the scientific field, as aesthetic and finally ethical-political. The most precise objective will be, therefore, the study of the built environment as a diaphragm between our mind and our social history of use of space.

Line of research architecture and technique

Responsible

Dr. Frederic Marimon Viadiu

Objectives

Organisation and planning

Study duration

Doctoral studies can either be carried out part-time or full-time.

  • Full-time study: maximum 3 years
  • Part-time study: maximum 5 years

Study extensions may be granted for the duration of the study programme, when properly justified through a request sent to the Doctoral Academic Committee.

Enrolment and conditions

  1. Students should officially renew their enrolment on the programme on an annual basis.
    Students may only enrol on one of the approved doctoral programmes. It is not possible to enrol simultaneously on another programme.
  2. Students will be removed from the programme under the following circumstances:
    • Voluntarily renouncing the right to continue on the programme, which should be communicated in writing to the Doctoral Academic Committee.
    • At the decision of the Doctoral Academic Committee.
    • Failure to pay the annual registration fee within the established period.
    • Completing the Doctoral Programme after defending the doctoral thesis.
  3. Doctoral students may request temporary leave from the course for a maximum period of one year, which can be extended for a further year.
    The request must be justified before the academic committee responsible for the programme, who will decide whether or not to grant the leave requested by the doctoral student.
  4. For duly justified reasons, the doctoral student may request the extension that is legally established in the study duration. This request should be sent to the Doctoral Academic Committee with proper justification, three months in advance of the final date for the end of the course duration.

Planning doctoral studies

During the study period, in addition to carrying out their research plan, the doctoral student should take part in the educational activities established in the programme.

More specifically, during their first year of study students should present their research and thesis development plan to the Specific Doctoral Committee, as a prior step before the Doctoral Academic Committee approves the research plan. Later, the research plan should be assessed by the university's Research Ethics Committee.

Follow-up

The Doctoral Academic Committee is responsible for carrying out an annual follow-up on all the doctoral students on the programme, through an annual assessment in the Doctoral Activities Document (DAD) and the Research Plan, as well as through reports issued by the thesis director and/or supervisor.

Research plan

During their first year, doctoral students should draw up a research plan (thesis project) that should at least include a methodology and objectives, as well as the materials and schedule that aim to achieve this. Before the end of the first year, doctoral students should present their Research Plan to a committee of external experts from outside the UIC, the Specific Doctoral Committee, so that they can then be approved by the Doctoral Academic Committee.

On an annual basis, the Doctoral Academic Committee will supervise the progress of the research carried out by students through an annual follow-up of the Research Plan.

Doctoral activities document (DAD)

On an annual basis, doctoral students should submit a document that details all the activities they have carried out (training courses, conferences, seminars given, research trips, articles published) to be approved by the Doctoral Academic Committee.

Student education

Over the course of their doctoral studies, students should complete educational activities that will round out their profile as a researcher. These activities may be cross-cutting in nature or specific to each programme. Doctoral students, together with their thesis director (and supervisor), will choose the educational activities that are best adapted to their profile and research skills.

The Doctoral School organises cross-cutting educational activities on an annual basis, such as public speaking, research ethics, database management, writing a bibliography, drafting scientific articles, etc.

Doctoral Programmes organise specific educational activities for each programme or line of research.

Doctoral thesis

The Doctoral Thesis can be presented in a traditional format or as a compilation of articles, and should be structured in the following sections:

  • I. Introduction: The doctoral student should explain the importance of the topic and the connection between the different articles and how they complement each other.
  • II. Hypothesis and objectives: The hypothesis and objectives of the thesis.
  • III. Methodology: General description of the methodology used in the articles.
  • IV. Research results, made up of:
    • Traditional thesis: chapters
    • Compilation thesis: articles that have been published or accepted for publication. The articles should comply with the criteria established by the Doctoral Academic Committee for the programme.
  • V. Discussion: A general discussion and highlighting the general results of the project.
  • VI. Conclusion: list of the conclusions reached during the thesis project.
  • VII. Bibliography
  • VIII.Annexes: if submitting a Compilation Thesis, you should attach the full text of the published article or the article pending publication.

The thesis should be reviewed by two experts on the topic who are external to the UIC, before being accepted for the oral thesis defence.
