Masters in urban regeneration, rehabilitation and design (online)


Program Description

  • DATES: Free and Customized. Recommendation: 9 months (October-June)
  • CREDITS: 60


The Master is born from the requirement to train professionals with an innovative profile, specialized in the management and development of the aspects that have characterized the citizen and urban contesto in recent years.

We believe that we can create a new professionalism capable of planning and managing urban and rural environments through new technologies, new sustainable and intelligent management systems and above all respect for a safe, healthy and sustainable HABITAT.


Graduates who are interested in forming their professionalism in the regeneration and management of the urban and citizen system, with special interest in citizen collaboration, sustainable rehabilitation and design as engines of regeneration.


The Master aims to facilitate the practical application of the subjects taught. This is why we are currently collaborating in two different urban environments. Miranda del Castañar (Salamanca) in collaboration with the Town Hall of this locality in what concerns to protected rural environments.

On the other hand and in what most affects to a possible application of the concept the Smart Cities with the neighborhood of the West of Salamanca and the association of neighbors ZOES. The neighborhood of the West has all the characteristics for the application of the public policies related to Urban Regeneration. High density urban environment, with an aging population, obsolete buildings according to the needs of emission reduction and accessibility and low quality public spaces based on the round circulation.

We understand that this is a place of great interest to investigate this new way of understanding the intervention in the city and also apply the new technologies. It is of greater interest to integrate an intensive social vision and a culture-based identity through initiatives such as "Galería Urbana", "Quedamos y Punto", "Zoes en Verde", ... having a high neighborhood support and a positive assessment municipal.

We believe that some joint action can be proposed in this environment that involves the possibility of the practical application of the concepts of "Smart Cities" in this type of environment.


The final Master project comprises 15 credits and will be developed through personalized tutorials online or face-to-face depending on the student's possibility. The project will finally be publicly exposed in court, either in person or by videoconference.
