IAAC Academic Programme Applications Open

Master in Advanced Architecture (MAA). This Master programme is oriented towards architects, engineers and designers from all over the world eager to imagine the future of our cities and societies and committed to building it in the present. Being the first Master in Advanced Architecture in the world, the IAAC’s MAA has now reached its 18th edition. During this time IAAC has received over 1,000 students from more than 70 countries, making it an exceptionally international and multicultural place. Click here to learn more.

Master in Advanced Ecological Buildings (MAEB). Current discourses on sustainability and design do not yet adequately frame questions of energy and ecology. Whether you consider how building design overlooks landscape and urbanisation interdependencies; or incomplete interpretations of the ecological processes that could otherwise better support building, urbanisation, and life today; or how the material choices in buildings are governed by stylistic abstract notions instead of something ecologically more powerful, the Master in Advanced Ecological Buildings aims for a more ambitious and comprehensive approach of energy and ecology for the built environment. Click here to learn more.

Master in Robotics and Advanced Construction (MRAC). IAAC seeks to train a new generation of interdisciplinary actors capable of facing our growing need for a more sustainable and optimised construction ecosystem. The Master is focused on the emerging design and market opportunities arising from novel robotic and advanced manufacturing systems. This programme challenges the traditional processes in the Construction Sector; it investigates how robotics and new digital fabrication tools change the way we build and develops the design tools and processes for such new productions methods. Click here to learn more.

Master in Design for Emergent Futures (MDEF).  The programme is recommended for designers, sociologists, computer scientists, economists, anthropologists, technology entrepreneurs and changemakers who are looking to develop an interdisciplinary career path to conceive and produce impactful ideas to transform the world. This Master has a high component of hands-on learning and project-based learning where students will be requested to turn big ideas into design strategies, prototypes and interventions to be tested in the real world, focused in Barcelona but connected globally with other cities.

Master in City & Technology (MaCT). In an effort of understanding the needs for the habitability of the 21st-century cities and the significant role of technology for the formation of the new urban environments IAAC proposes a programme oriented in training change makers that City Government Administrations, the Industry and Communities need in order to develop projects for the transformation of the cities. MaCT foresees new city economy and new city management models for the creation of a decentralized, productive and social city of the future. Click here to learn more.

Bachelor’s Degree in Urban Sciences (BDUSc). This new Bachelor’s degree led together with ESCI-UPF is a new undergraduate programme that combines theoretical, practical and applied knowledge from the fields of ecology, economy, society, technology and habitat in order to tackle present and future issues in urban spaces. This programme trains professionals to become the future leaders of cities by equipping students with the necessary skills to take diverse career paths, including local, regional, national and even international public and private organisations. Click here to learn more.
