About

The Architecture programme from Instituto Superior Técnico is structured in the framework of a wide-ranging understanding about the processes of production and use of the built space at both the urban and the building scale. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The Architecture programme from Instituto Superior Técnico is focused on:

  • the interpretation and operationalisation of built space interventions in areas relating to their cultural and technological insertion.
  • the process and organisation of architectural and urban design concerning the management and evaluation of its internal and external features as well as the interaction between stakeholders;
  • the principles and tools for spatial description and evaluation of built space performance. 

Objectives

The main goal of the Doctoral Degree in Architecture is to implement the concept of a project-oriented doctorate, supported in integrated research, i.e. from the theoretic to the practical level. 

The processes of intervention in the built space are examined at both the urban and the building scale according to their environmental social, cultural and economic practicability.  

The doctoral student in Architecture gains deep and advanced knowledge in this area, supported by lecture courses, and demonstrated in an innovative thesis which must advance the state-of-the-art in its subject matter. 

The lecture courses supporting the doctoral degree are mostly based on individual autonomous study, as a background to the doctoral thesis, which must be an significant original contribution of the author as individual to the subject of study.

Employment

The Doctor's Degree in Architecture qualifies for teaching and research activities, (e.g. in institutions of higher education, research laboratories) as well as for architectural and urban design practice.

It is intended that the holder of the Doctoral Degree in Architecture shall be able to continue to develop, deepen and apply the knowledge arising from research work, thus becoming a valuable contributor to the work of the institution, which provides her/his employment.
