The bachelor’s degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction (will provide you with broad-based training on the theoretical, technical and technological fundamentals of the building sector and a European graduate profile.


Change in the curriculum

  • The modified curriculum of the bachelor’s degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction will be introduced in the 2019-2020 academic year for first-year students only.
  • Students who are currently taking the second, third or fourth year of the degree will continue to follow the previous curriculum during the 2019-2020 academic year.
  • In September 2020, all students on the bachelor’s degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction at the EPSEB will have to adapt to the modified curriculum according to the table of equivalences published on the School’s website.
  • Students in their last year will only have the 2019-2020 academic year to write and defend their 24-credit bachelor’s thesis in the current curriculum.

Introduction

The Barcelona School of Building Construction had been teaching the diploma in Technical Architecture since 1967. This pre-EHEA diploma equipped students with skills similar to those currently acquired by students on the bachelor's degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction. Before that, since the beginning of the twentieth century, the School trained building engineers, who also learnt basic skills that were similar to those that were later acquired by technical architects.

University reform due to the European Higher Education Area means that what was previously the bachelor's degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction qualifies graduates to practise as technical architects.

Aim

The aim of the bachelor's degree is to give students an excellent scientific grounding and a broad view of building construction.

The bachelor's degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction allows graduates to carry out various activities in the field of building construction, including the direction and material execution of the work, its organisation and planning, quality control, occupational health and safety, financial management and cost control.

All of these topics are approached from the perspective of innovation and technological development, as well as with respect for the environment.

After finishing the bachelor's degree, graduates may apply for the master's degrees in Advanced Building Construction and Building Construction Management.
