Bachelor's degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction

Barcelona School of Building Construction (EPSEB)

Architectural technology and building construction professionals contribute to building the cities of the future and improving people's quality of life. It is a versatile profession that will provide you with a general view of the construction cycle and allow you to choose a specialisation ranging from energy efficiency and 3D design to business administration and works management. You will also become an expert in materials, structures and facilities.
To achieve this, we will provide you with a Europe-focused, generalist education on the theory, techniques and technology of the building construction sector. We emphasise going beyond lectures, fostering practical and transversal education and incorporating new teaching methods and activities that increase students' active participation in the learning process.
