Program Description

At the School of Architecture of the Universidad Europea we train architects prepared to respond to the demands of society and the labor market through the transverse incorporation into the curriculum of principles and knowledge related to sustainability and the environment, accessibility , internationality, communication skills (in Spanish and English), business management or the efficient use of new technologies

The Degree in Fundamentals of Architecture Master's Degree is a valid European qualification for practicing the profession of Architect throughout the European Union, providing you with a complete multidisciplinary training in all fields covered by architecture: project design, urban planning, sustainability, management, training technical, graphic training, communication skills, critical history and professional practice.

This training is applied following the European model workshop-practical learning- in which students develop projects that are supervised by professors of different profiles in an integrated way, solving case-studies not local but global.

A key point is the Internationality since the student can choose to study all the courses in 100% in English, all in Spanish, or choose some subjects in Spanish and others in English, both in Degree and Master.

In addition, the School of Architecture has reinforced its portfolio offering the possibility of studying together with the Degree in Fundamentals of the Architecture Master's Degree in Architecture, the Double Degree with NSAD (San Diego, United States) 100% in English.
