Curriculum, general information and admission

What you will study on the bachelor’s degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction and how

At the EPSEB, you will receive training that responds to society's demands through a curriculum that will prepare you for employment in the building construction sector. The bachelor's degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction will provide you with a Europe-focused, generalist education on the theory, techniques and technology of the building construction sector.

At the EPSEB, we emphasise going beyond lectures, fostering practical education and incorporating new teaching methods and activities that increase students' active participation in the learning process.

Workshops: practise like a professional from the first day

From your first year, you will take part in cross-disciplinary workshops in which you will learn by doing and building as part of a team. The workshops are designed for you to put the skills that you acquire into practice from the perspective of the subjects you take. You will work with others on a joint project, so from the start you will practise as you would when you work in Architectural Technology.

Practicals

Because not all subjects are the same, at the EPSEB we foster a practical and applied educational model that includes teaching and research laboratories and classrooms. We also follow teaching methods that involve you learning as you apply your skills and enjoy what you are doing.

Visits to building sites and leading companies in the sector
