Abierto el plazo de inscripción para la Segunda Edición del Master in City Sciences. El Máster es un programa transversal de postgrado entre las Escuelas de Ingeniería y Arquitectura que proporciona un enfoque global sobre el desarrollo de la ciudad.

The Technical University of Madrid (UPM) is promoting a unique and cross-cutting postgraduate program between the schools of engineering and architecture that has already became an international benchmark. The Master in City Sciences is an advanced program that provides a holistic view on the development of the city.

Nowadays, the city is the first economic and social engine worldwide. It is the object of interest of the most important companies. Traditional university courses have failed to respond to the urgent demand of professionals with a technical and comprehensive vision of the urban phenomenon. Answering this demand, the MCS program integrates disciplines related with planning, energy, sociology, economics and all the new technologies and infrastructures that are the core of the functioning of the city.

Right from the start, students from all nations will be trained in city-related areas both in a theoretical and practical way, in order to achieve a high professional level. MCS is based on real projects that will be approached as case studies.

This transdisciplinary approach has made that important international companies are involved in the MCS faculty, in the preparation of the final master thesis and in the possible subsequent employment. The international character and the pursuit of excellence are reflected in the workshops together with other international universities and in the quality of the faculty staff, which aims to have the best international figure of each field.

MCS is committed to the highest level of education combining professors of international prestige and a thorough participant selection process in order to make the best out of this course.

The UPM will establish an admission process among all those engineers, architects, economists and graduates interested in becoming highly qualified professionals, able to understand and manage the multidimensional nature of the city.
