Doctorate in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation


The doctorate programme in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation was created in the 1989-1990 academic year, as a consequence of the fusion of the Doctoral Programmes of Urban Management and Real Estate Valuations that had offered since the 1986-87 academic year, coinciding with the creation of new doctoral studies within the UPC. The experience of the first years of the two aforementioned programmes gave rise to the notion of unifying the two areas in one teaching and research programme, in order to achieve an increased degree of efficiency. The unified Doctoral Programme has continued to incorporate new areas and techniques over the last decade that affect architecture, spatial planning and territorial management, at the same time as introducing new elements such as housing policy, urban ecology and environmental management, as well as new technologies such as geographical information systems (GIS), remote sensing, 3D modelling and virtual reality all applied to urban and regional analysis. It is by the staff of the department of Architectural Technology (TA), with the support of other departments) drawn together in the Centre for Land Policy and Valuations (CPSV). The group of staff supporting the Doctoral Programme obtained the official recognition as a Consolidated Research Group in 1997, from the Department of Universities and Research (DURSI) of the Catalonian Regional Government, which has been ratified on successive occasions since then, within the context of the Regional Plans for Research and Development. The Group has coordinated the Thematic Network of Ecology and the City, also supported by DURSI, and participates in a wide number of national and international research platforms.
