This Master integrates concepts that are linked to design, operation and management of projects, from the formulation of the project to the subsequent analysis of it regardless of its origins and purpose.

From this integrated perspective of project design, management and administration, the program aims to form professionals with high social and ethical commitment, and give them an overview of what the intervention of a city means. In this sense, the program educates with concrete methodologies for delivering solutions to urban and architectural problems, allowing to redesign the physical spaces occupied by humans in the present.

The program is particularly aimed at professionals with considerable interest in the orderly urban growth and physical change of the city, through all its interventions, based on the methodology of urban-architectural projects.


General Outcomes:

  1. Offer knowledge on urban growth and physical modification of the city, through interventions based on the methodology of Urban-Architectural projects, from an integrated perspective of the design, management and project management, to train professionals with high ethical and social commitment, and a global vision of city intervention.
  2. Provide education in new or unfamiliar environments of design, project management, from the elaboration phase to the analysis, despite the origin and purpose, in order for the student to apply the knowledge acquired, formulating judgments, making decisions and solving urban and architectural problems, which allow to redesign physical spaces.
  3. Provide scientific research tools that allows the student produce creative work in an ethical manner; demonstrating mastering of the material.

Specific Outcomes:

At the end of the program students will be capable of:

  1. Define basic concepts in architecture and urban planning projects.
  2. Design a pre-project considering its basic aspects, from the definition of the situation to the presentation of a solution proposal, recognizing the necessary elements that must be defined and specified to manage and materialize the proposal.
  3. Recognize and analyze the basic aspects of an architecture and urban planning project, to define strategically the necessary services, ergonomic aspects and functional aspects of the project.
  4. Analyze the key aspects of architecture and urban planning project management; identification of interested parties, user requisites, management of team works and basic issues that defined the feasibility and viability.
  5. Identify the elements that contribute quality, security and feasibility to the project, as well as those that represent important risks, while analyzing the possible impact to the environment and the existent sustainable development and eco-design systems.
  6. Incorporate basic project management and administration tools to manage resources, calendar and the TIC available for urban planning and architecture projects.
