Placed as the last technological subject in the study plan the students must be able to gather all the information received in the previous courses and, in an integrated way, develop a project. The link between design and construction is the main objective of this subjet offering the students the possibility of developing a project in teams under an international scenario. The students must be aware at the end of the course of the results of certain designs and construction technics over the user of the building. The relation with the International Marjal Healthy Chair, with a wide experience organizing international teaching experiences, will allow the students participant in international workshops about construction and healthy solutions.
