The Advanced Master´s in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Constructions is a Joint
European Master Programme. The higher education institutions involved in the MSc (consortium institutions) are:
- University of Minho (Guimaraes, Portugal)
- Czech Technical University in Prague (Prague, Czech Republic)
- Technical University of Catalonia (Barcelona, Spain)
- University of Padova (Padova, Italy)
The objective of the MSc is to offer an advanced education programme on the engineering of conservation
of structures, with a focus on architectural heritage. The Master´s combines the diversity
of expertise at leading European universities in the field, offering education oriented to
a multidisciplinary understanding of structural conservation through the involvement
of experts from complementary fields (engineers, architects, materials scientists and others).
Students face top level structural analysis knowledge in a research oriented environment,
with close cooperation with the industry and a focus on problem solving.
The Master´s will provide a cross-disciplinary education comprising engineering oriented
issues (experimental techniques, computer modelling, structural analysis, seismic behaviour
and structural dynamics, repairing and strengthening techniques, surveying, monitoring, etc.)
with more general methodological or philosophical concepts (history of construction and restoration,
principles and methodology of conservation, etc.).
The main focus of this training is the application of scientific principles in analysis,
innovation and practice of conservation of monuments and historical constructions worldwide.
The course will combine the very recent advances in research and development with activities
oriented to practical applications. In turn, the course will pay significant attention
to the regional differences shown by the architectural heritage and historical
construction techniques within Europe or at World scale.
Important note: Since this is a Joint European Master Programme, special
conditions on admission, duration, study plans, tuition fees, scholarships etc. apply. Courses offered
in this programme are available only to students admitted to this programme.
