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.
