Master's degree in Advanced Building Construction

Barcelona School of Building Construction (EPSEB)

The master's degree in Advanced Building Construction (master's degree website) produces graduates for the building construction sector, which is increasingly automated. In the current context, which has seen a decrease in the number of new buildings being built in Spain, concepts such as sustainability and energy efficiency are increasingly important, as are the recovery, conservation and improvement of built heritage. The master's degree therefore provides an education that confronts the sector's new challenges and the skills students need to understand and deepen their knowledge of the construction process and pursue a research career.
