Faculties and centres
Contemporary society is characterized by increasingly urbanized spaces, forms and new challenges that require, first, a knowledge and understanding of the processes and forces that shape these spaces and, second, to provide students tools to intervention in them.
However, compared to the traditional sectorial or non-holistic approach of engineering, a new concept much more open and linked to other dimensions that constitute this new contemporary spatial reality is proposed.
