The doctoral programme in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation was launched in the 1989-1990 academic year by combining previous doctoral programmes in Urban Management and Property Valuation, which had been running since the 1986-1987 academic year when new doctoral courses were introduced at the UPC. The experience gained in the first years that the two precursor programmes were offered suggested that it would make sense to combine these two subject areas in a single teaching and research programme in order to streamline the UPC’s offering of doctoral degrees and increase efficiency. Over the last decade, the doctoral programme has been integrating new sensibilities and techniques that affect architecture, planning and regional management. This means working with new disciplines, such as housing policy, urban ecology and environmental management; and new technologies, such as geographic information systems, remote sensing, 3D city modelling, and virtual reality applied to urban and regional analysis.

The programme is organised by the academic staff of the Department of Architectural Technology (with the support of other departments), who come together in the Centre for Land Valuation Policy (CPSV) Research Group, a unit whose establishment was approved by the Governing Board of the UPC in 1986. In 1997, the CPSV was recognised as a specific research centre of the University, and the Centre has developed into a postgraduate research and third-cycle training platform with wide experience in basic and applied research. The professors responsible for the doctoral programme were recognised as a consolidated research group by the Catalan Ministry of Universities and Research in 1997, and this status was renewed in 1999, 2001, 2003 and 2005 within the framework of the 1st, 3rd and 4th Research Plans for Catalonia. The group has coordinated the Ecology and City Thematic Network (an initiative of the Catalan Ministry of Universities, Research and the Information Society) and participates in various national and international research platforms.

In 1995, the doctoral programme in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation was recognised with a quality award granted by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science. In 1997, through an ALFA project of the European Union, the programme organisers began preparing an international doctoral degree in the field of urban management and valuation. The programme maintains collaborative relationships with many European universities, with which it has concluded Socrates agreements on credit recognition and academic staff and student exchanges. Specifically, the programme has agreements with Polytechnic University of Turin, the University of Naples Federico II, NOVA University of Lisbon, the University of Coimbra, and the University of Amsterdam. The doctoral programme (the only one in Spain in the field of urban management and valuation) benefits from the collaboration of a number of renowned professors from universities specialising in the subject area it covers. Participating professors are from the following Spanish universities: Carlos III University of Madrid (Department of Administrative Law), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Department of Applied Economics and CREAF), University of Navarra (School of Architecture), Universitat Politècnica de València (Department of Urbanism), Technical University of Madrid (Department of Construction and Urbanism), University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Department of Construction), University of the Balearic Islands (Department of Administrative Law), Complutense University of Madrid (Department of Sociology II), University of Alacant (Department of Architectural Construction), and University of Barcelona (Departments of Sociology and Human Geography).

The doctoral programme is also supported by the Architecture, City and Environment Network, in which a number of European and Latin American universities participate, and which publishes the journal Architecture, City & Environment (ISSN 1886-4805, www-cpsv.upc.es/ace/) and organises the annual Virtual City and Territory International Conference.

General information

Access profile

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the doctoral programme, in addition to degrees in architecture and urbanism and in engineering, qualifications in other areas of knowledge – such as economics, sociology, geography, law, ecology and environmental sciences – are considered appropriate entry routes.

With respect to UPC master’s programmes, preference is given to students who have completed a master’s degree in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation or a master's degree in Advanced Studies in Architecture-Barcelona (MBArch) with specialisation in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation. Applications from graduates of other UPC or external master's programmes will also be accepted and considered. Preference will be given to applicants who hold a master's degree (or equivalent) in a subject area related to one of the programme’s research areas, such as urbanism, economics, sociology, geography and law, among others.

In the assessment process, emphasis is also given to certain personal characteristics—namely, an interest in the research projects coordinated and carried out by professors involved in the programme; critical and analytical skills; initiative and perseverance in academic work; the ability to work in a team; and the ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing. Given that applicants will have a range of different backgrounds, specific criteria will be established to define the basic knowledge they have upon entry to the programme in a standardised way based on their qualifications and place of origin. Accordingly, applicants must complete a standardised curriculum vitae designed by the academic committee for the doctoral programme. This document carries significant weight in the assessment process, particularly in the case of applicants whose entrance qualification is not a UPC master’s degree. It is therefore very important that applicants complete it correctly.

It is considered important and necessary that applicants have a basic knowledge of the key subject areas the doctoral programme is concerned with; namely, urban management, property or urban valuation, spatial and urban planning, the environment and ICT. Students who do not have sufficient knowledge of one or more of these areas will be required to complete bridging courses if admitted.

When an application has been received in the system (and prior to the assessment process), the Postgraduate Course Coordination Unit of the Centre for Land Valuation Policy (CPSV) will notify applicants that they must complete the standardised CV document. Applicants will be provided with detailed instructions and information regarding the specific admission and assessment criteria that apply and their weighting.

Output profile

Doctoral candidates who complete a doctoral degree will have acquired the following competencies, which are needed to carry out quality research (Royal Decree 99/2011, of 28 January, which regulates official doctoral studies):

a) A systematic understanding of the field of study and a mastery of the research skills and methods related to the field.
b) An ability to conceive, design or create, put into practice and adopt a substantial process of research or creation.
c) An ability to contribute to pushing back the frontiers of knowledge through original research.
d) A capacity for critical analysis and an ability to assess and summarise new and complex ideas.
e) An ability to communicate with the academic and scientific community and with society in general as regards their fields of knowledge in the manner and languages that are typical of the international scientific community to which they belong.
f) An ability to foster scientific, technological, social, artistic and cultural progress in academic and professional contexts within a knowledge-based society.

The award of a doctoral degree must equip the graduate for work in a variety of settings, especially those requiring creativity and innovation. Doctoral graduates must have at least acquired the personal skills needed to:

a) Develop in contexts in which there is little specific information.
b) Find the key questions that must be answered to solve a complex problem.
c) Design, create, develop and undertake original, innovative projects in their field.
d) Work as part of a team and independently in an international or multidisciplinary context.
e) Integrate knowledge, deal with complexity and make judgements with limited information.
f) Offer criticism on and intellectually defend solutions.

Finally, doctoral students must demonstrate the following competencies:
a) Have acquired advanced knowledge at the frontier of their discipline and demonstrated, in the context of internationally recognised scientific research, a deep, detailed and well-grounded understanding of theoretical and practical issues and scientific methodology in one or more research fields.
b) Have made an original and significant contribution to scientific research in their field of knowledge that has been recognised as such by the international scientific community.
c) Have demonstrated that they are capable of designing a research project that serves as a framework for carrying out a critical analysis and assessment of imprecise situations, to which they are able to apply their contributions, knowledge and working method to synthesise new and complex ideas that yield a deeper knowledge of the research context in which they are working.
d) Have developed sufficient autonomy to initiate, manage and lead innovative research teams and projects and scientific collaborations (both national and international) within their subject area, in multidisciplinary contexts and, where appropriate, with a substantial element of knowledge transfer.
e) Have shown that they are capable of carrying out their research activity in a socially responsible manner and with scientific integrity.
f) Have demonstrated, within their specific scientific context, that they are capable of making advances of a cultural, social or technological nature and promoting innovation in all areas within a knowledge-based society.
g) Have demonstrated that they are able to participate in scientific discussions at the international level in their field of knowledge and disseminate the results of their research activity to audiences of all kinds.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years.

When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the requirement to complete this minimum period of study.

Temporary disability leave and leave for the birth of a child, adoption or fostering for the purposes of adoption, temporary foster care, risk during pregnancy or infant feeding, gender violence and any other situation provided for in current regulations do not count towards these periods. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which must inform the Doctoral School.

Doctoral candidates may request periods of temporary withdrawal from the programme for up to a total of two years. Requests must be justified and addressed to the academic committee responsible for the programme, which will decide whether or not to grant the candidate's request.

Extension of studies
If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate receiving a negative reassessment after the deadline set by the academic committee of the doctoral programme to remedy the deficiencies that led to a previous negative assessment.
  • The doctoral candidate having been the subject of disciplinary proceedings leading to their suspension or permanent exclusion from the UPC.
  • A refusal to authorise the extensions applied for, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.3 of these regulations.
  • The doctoral candidate not having submitted the research plan in the period established in Section 8.2 of these regulations.
  • The maximum period of study for the doctoral degree having ended, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.4 of these regulations.

Dismissal from the programme means that the doctoral candidate cannot continue studying at the UPC and that their academic record will be closed. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission, and the committee must reevaluate the candidate in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

A doctoral candidate who has been dismissed due to having exceeded the time limit for completing doctoral studies or due to an unsatisfactory assessment may not be Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Page 17 of 33 admitted to the same doctoral programme until at least two years have elapsed from the date of dismissal, as provided for in sections 3.4 and 9.2 of these regulations.

Agreements with other institutions

Socrates agreements are in effect with the University of Amsterdam, the University of Naples Federico II, NOVA University of Lisbon, Polytechnic University of Turin, and the University of Coimbra.

The programme actively promotes the mobility of member of the doctoral community by establishing contacts with these and other universities according to the area of specialisation for each doctoral thesis. Specific collaborations with these institutions are established to facilitate research stays by doctoral students.
Programme organisers also participate in the search for financial resources to support stays abroad. These stays have led to graduates of the programme being awarded European Doctorate mentions.

In addition to collaborative relationships with other universities under Socrates agreements (covering credit recognition and academic staff and student exchange), the doctoral programme (the only one in Spain in the field of urban management and valuation) benefits from the collaboration of renowned professors from the following Spanish universities:

Carlos III University of Madrid (Department of Administrative Law)
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Department of Applied Economics and CREAF)
Universitat Politècnica de València (Department of Urbanism)
Technical University of Madrid (Department of Construction and Urbanism)
University of the Balearic Islands (Department of Administrative Law)
Complutense University of Madrid (Department of Sociology II)
University of Granada (Department of Architectural Construction).

Students of the doctoral programme who wish to obtain the European Doctorate mention also complete stays abroad at universities other than those with which Socrates agreements are in effect, including UCLouvain (Belgium) and the Vienna University of Technology (Austria), among others.

The programme is also enriched by the participation of foreign and national PhD holders, both under its own collaboration agreements and within the framework of programmes that provide mobility grants for doctoral degrees which have been recognised with quality awards. Notable among these participants are:

Dr António José Pais Antunes. University of Coimbra, Portugal.
Dr Agustín de Asís. Carlos III University, Getafe, Spain.
Dr Adriana Olivares. University of Guadalajara, Mexico.
Dr Daniel González Romero. University of Guadalajara, Mexico.
Dr Pedro Abramo. Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Dr Héctor Gaete. University of the Bío-Bío, Chile.
Dr Geoffrey Caruso. UCLouvain, Belgium.
Dr Jean-Paul Loborie. University of Toulouse–Le Mirail, France.
Dr Jesús Leal Maldonado. Complutense University of Madrid, Spain.
Dr Jorge Malheiros. NOVA University of Lisbon, Portugal.

Dr Rudolf Giffinger. Vienna University of Technology, Austria.


The programme also has the support of the Architecture, City and Environment (ACE) Network, which, in addition to European universities, includes Latin American universities such as the University of the Bío-Bío (Chile), the University of Guadalajara (Mexico), Autonomous University of Baja California (Mexico), and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). The ACE Network, through the Centre for Land Valuation Policy (CPSV), also publishes the journal ACE, Architecture, City & Environment (ISSN 1886-4805, www-cpsv.upc.es/ace) and organises the Virtual City and Territory International Conference. The involvement of the CPSV in the conference is a significant advantage for students of the programme, who can obtain various internal grants to present papers at and attend this annual event.

Access, admission and registration

Access profile

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the doctoral programme, in addition to degrees in architecture and urbanism and in engineering, qualifications in other areas of knowledge – such as economics, sociology, geography, law, ecology and environmental sciences – are considered appropriate entry routes.

With respect to UPC master’s programmes, preference is given to students who have completed a master’s degree in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation or a master's degree in Advanced Studies in Architecture-Barcelona (MBArch) with specialisation in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation.

Access requirements

As a rule, applicants must hold a Spanish bachelor's degree or equivalent and a Spanish master's degree or equivalent, provided they have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on the two degrees (Royal Decree 43/2015, of 2 February).

Applicants who meet one or more of the following conditions are also eligible for admission:

a) Holders of official Spanish degrees or equivalent Spanish qualifications, provided they have passed 300 ECTS credits in total and they can prove they have reached Level 3 in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education.
b) Holders of degrees awarded in foreign education systems in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), which do not require homologation, who can prove that they have reached Level 7 in the European Qualifications Framework, provided the degree makes the holder eligible for admission to doctoral studies in the country in which it was awarded.
c) Holders of degrees awarded in a country that does not belong to the EHEA, which do not require homologation, on the condition that the University is able to verify that the degree is of a level equivalent to that of official university master's degrees in Spain and that it makes the holder eligible for admission to doctoral studies in the country in which it was awarded.
d) Holders of another doctoral degree.
e) Holders of an official university qualification who, having been awarded a post as a trainee in the entrance examination for specialised medical training, have successfully completed at least two years of training leading to an official degree in a health sciences specialisation.

Legal framework

Admission criteria and merits assessment

When applicants pre-enrol, following the assessment and acceptance of their applications by the academic committee for the doctoral programme, they must submit the following documents in digital format:

• Identity document.
• Academic record for the applicant’s bachelor's or pre-EHEA degree.
• Professional qualification.
• Academic record for a master's programme.
• Master’s degree.
Curriculum vitae (standardised CV).
• Research proposal or plan.
• Annexed documents (as each applicant deems appropriate).

The academic committee for the doctoral programme has set a number of additional admission requirements.

The admission criteria for the doctoral programme were modified when official university master’s programmes were introduced. Applicants must have obtained the required 60 ECTS postgraduate credits, hold a master's degree, and be graduates of a related bachelor’s degree course.

The following specific admission criteria apply:
• The following degrees qualify students for direct admission to the doctoral programme: the master’s degree in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation (discontinued) and the master's degree in Advanced Studies in Architecture-Barcelona (MBArch), specialisation in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation. Students who hold one of these degrees will not need to complete any bridging courses. However, if the number of applications exceeds the number of places offered, applications will be prioritised based on applicants’ results on the master's degree completed and their personal characteristics, which the members of the academic committee will be familiar with as a result of them having completed master’s studies at the UPC.
• Official degrees awarded following completion of a foreign master's programme similar to one of those specified above and master’s degrees in related areas will qualify applicants for direct admission (subject to assessment of the content of the programme in question by the academic committee). Applicants with such qualifications may be required to complete bridging courses if admitted.
• Applicants must also submit a research project, which will be assessed by the academic committee. Applicants who do not submit a research project will not be admitted. It is important to indicate that this project will be worked on by the doctoral student, together with their tutor and thesis supervisor, before it is formally presented to the selection committee.

In the assessment process, specific weighting criteria are also defined to prioritise applicants for admission to the programme:
• Academic record, with particular attention to the mark obtained on the master's degree (weighting: 25%).
• Soundness of the research project proposed to the selection committee (weighting: 25%).
• Research experience as indicated by articles published in scientific journals and conference papers (weighting: 20%)
• Competitive grants previously obtained and international mobility prospects (weighting: 10%).
• Personal contact through questionnaires and face-to-face, telephone or virtual interviews (weighting: 10%).
• Other relevant points: knowledge of languages commonly used in the scientific community, motivation, teaching experience, etc. (weighting: 10%).

Training complements

The academic committee for the programme may require that doctoral students pass specific bridging courses. In such cases, the committee will keep track of the bridging courses completed and establish appropriate criteria to limit their duration.

Students who have not completed the master’s degree in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation or the master's degree in Advanced Studies in Architecture-Barcelona (MBArch) with specialisation in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation will be assessed by the academic committee for the doctoral programme, which will decide whether to admit such applicants after assessing their bachelor's degree, master’s degree (entrance qualification), marks and research plan. If admitted, these students may be required to complete bridging courses carrying up to 45 ECTS credits. Any bridging courses required will be compulsory or optional subjects offered within the framework of the master's degree in Advanced Studies in Architecture-Barcelona (MBArch), specialisation in Urban and Architectural Management and Valuation. 

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

First enrolment will take place after admission decisions are issued if this happens after the general enrolment period.

More information at the registration section for new doctoral students

Enrolment period

In the first half of October.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is four years, counted from the date of first enrolment in the relevant programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is seven years from the date of first enrolment in the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited. To calculate these periods, the date of deposit is considered to be the date on which the thesis is made publicly available for review.

If a doctoral candidate has a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%, the maximum period of study is six years for full-time students and nine years for part-time students.

If a doctoral candidate has not applied to deposit their thesis before the expiry of the deadlines specified in the previous section, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may, at the request of the doctoral candidate, authorise an extension of this deadline of one year under the conditions specified for the doctoral programme in question.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate not having completed their annual enrolment or applied for a temporary interruption.
  • The doctoral candidate not having formalised annual enrolment on the day after the end of the authorisation to temporarily interrupt or withdraw from the programme.
  • The doctoral candidate receiving a negative reassessment after the deadline set by the academic committee of the doctoral programme to remedy the deficiencies that led to a previous negative assessment.
  • The doctoral candidate having been the subject of disciplinary proceedings leading to their suspension or permanent exclusion from the UPC.
  • A refusal to authorise the extensions applied for, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.3 of these regulations.
  • The doctoral candidate not having submitted the research plan in the period established in Section 8.2 of these regulations.
  • The maximum period of study for the doctoral degree having ended, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.4 of these regulations.

Dismissal from the programme means that the doctoral candidate cannot continue studying at the UPC and that their academic record will be closed. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission, and the committee must reevaluate the candidate in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

A doctoral candidate who has been dismissed due to having exceeded the time limit for completing doctoral studies or due to an unsatisfactory assessment may not be Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Page 17 of 33 admitted to the same doctoral programme until at least two years have elapsed from the date of dismissal, as provided for in sections 3.4 and 9.2 of these regulations.

Learning resources

Secretary’s Office for Doctoral Programmes in Architecture
Doctoral students have access to a team of administrative staff that provide support to doctoral programmes in architecture offered by the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB).
The Secretary's Office deals with processes related to pre-enrolment, enrolment, thesis reception, and any administrative matters that affect doctoral students during their studies. The unit (secretariadoctorat.utgab@upc.edu), which has a staff of five, also provides information on cross-disciplinary and specific activities aimed at programme participants.


Postgraduate Course Coordination Unit of the Centre for Land Valuation Policy (CPSV)
This unit of the CPSV (cpsv.info@upc.edu) provides internal support to the doctoral programme. It is staffed by an academic coordinator and an administrative support person. Its functions include coordinating academic activities linked to the programme (e.g. research process seminars), disseminating other activities, communicating internal information, and supporting doctoral students. In terms of administration, the unit is also responsible for coordinating tutorial meetings between students and their tutors and/or other professors involved in the programme.

Workspaces and facilities of the Centre for Land Valuation Policy (CPSV)

Doctoral students have access to a workspace on the premises of the CPSV (located on the North Campus of the UPC). In addition to a library with specialised documentation in the thematic and research areas covered by the doctoral programme (books, journals, theses, research documents, etc.), this space has two workstations with desktop computers, high-resolution screens and specialised software (GIS and statistical analysis software and other tools).
There are also six workstations (all networked) where students can work with laptops. Students also have access to copying equipment (scanner, photocopier, etc.) and various stationery items. The premises are staffed by two employees who provide administrative support to doctoral students.


Doctoral classroom of the Department of Architectural Technology I (CAI)
On the basement floor of the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB), there is a classroom for exclusive use by the programme. The space is equipped with 42 chairs with arms and four large tables for meetings or group work. The classroom also has a computer for making presentations, with a projection system, sound and board (traditional and whiteboard). Other conventional projection equipment is available, and the classroom has a network connection. Copying equipment (scanner, photocopier, etc.) and various stationery items are also available.


Virtual City Modelling Lab (LMVC)
Another space where students can work and request assistance with technical issues related to information technologies applied to regional and urban analysis is the Virtual City Modelling Lab (LMVC) (http://www.wix.com/lmvc_cpsv/lmvc), an initiative of the CPSV, with the support of the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB) and the Department of Architectural Technology. The LMVC’s main objective is to work on new spatial analysis technologies, regional management, and representation of urbanism and architecture within the framework of two priority research areas: 3D virtual modelling of regions, urbanism, architecture and archaeology; and urban and regional analysis using geographic information systems (GIS).

In the field of virtual representation, the laboratory benefits from the collaboration of the Virtual Reality Centre of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. This relationship has facilitated the introduction of 3D models of urban environments in Barcelona into immersive virtual reality systems such as Computer Animated Virtual Environment (CAVE) and their stereoscopic projection in systems such as Workbench-type tables. In recent years, the LMVC has also worked on laser scanner survey techniques to obtain point clouds that can be used to develop high-resolution 3D models of urban environments and existing buildings and in the virtual reconstruction of heritage sites.

Since the laboratory was established, significant advances have been made in the field of virtual representation, and virtual models of various cities have been developed in an effort to optimise methodologies, particularly with regard to post-processing of point clouds to obtain models. In the context of the LMVC, in 2004 this work led to the idea of organising the Virtual City and Territory International Conference (CTV), which has become an annual event.

One of its main aims of the laboratory is to provide training and specialised support to doctoral students in the use of new technologies, GIS, remote sensing and 3D laser scanner data. To this end, it has six high-capacity workstations (three of which are available for use by doctoral students), four 3D laser scanners and specialised software. The lab also has a staff of two specialists who can provide technical assistance. The workstations have a network connection. Students also have access to copying equipment (scanner, photocopier, etc.) and various stationery items.


Participation in competitively funded research projects
Doctoral students have opportunities to participate in competitively funded research areas and projects carried out by the CPSV – a valuable learning experience. Students (especially those who have obtained competitive grants) are encouraged to actively participate in various projects with competitive public funding that professors on the doctoral programme coordinate or are involved in. In the last five years, five basic research projects have been obtained – in the 2006 (1), 2008 (1), 2009 (2) and 2011 (1) calls. A scientific and technological project classified as “unique and strategic” was also obtained in the 2006 call, and an INNPACTO Programme project in the 2011 call. All of these projects were awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (now the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness). The CPSV was also awarded a project through the Avanza R&D sub-programme of the call for proposals for the 2009 Strategic Action for Telecommunications and the Information Society (Spanish Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade); two projects through the Interuniversity Cooperation and Scientific Research Programme; two projects through the Commission of the European Communities; and one project through the Spanish Ministry of Development, within the framework of the National Plan for Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation 2008–2011, among others. This makes a total of 14 competitively funded national projects in the last six years, to say nothing of various European projects. Information on all of these projects and details of the lines of work and research projects currently being pursued can be found in the research section of the Centre for Land Valuation Policy (CPSV) website (http://www.upc.edu/cpsv/indexrecerca.htm).

Visiting professors with competitive funding for mobility
As explained in the background section, the programme is also enriched by the participation of foreign and national PhD holders, both under its own collaboration agreements and within the framework of programmes that provide mobility grants for doctoral degrees that have been recognised with quality awards. Notable scholars from abroad who have participated in the programme include:
Dr António José Pais Antunes. University of Coimbra, Portugal.
Dr Daniel González Romero. University of Guadalajara, Mexico.
Dr Geoffrey Caruso. UCLouvain, Belgium.
Dr Jean-Paul Loborie. University of Toulouse–Le Mirail, France.
Dr Jorge Malheiros. NOVA University of Lisbon, Portugal.
Dr José António Pereira Tenedorio. NOVA University of Lisbon, Portugal.
Dr Luigi Fusco Girard. University of Naples Federico II, Italy.
Dr Marina Bravi. Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy.
Dr Patrizia Lombardi. Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy.
Dr Riccardo Roscelli. Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy.
Dr Rudolf Giffinger. Vienna University of Technology, Austria.


In the last five years, five to six applications have been submitted in each annual call for mobility funding; 80% to 83% of these applications were successful.


Travel grants
Thanks to student participation in competitively funded projects and collaboration with public administrations and companies on research contracts (all managed by the Centre for Land Valuation Policy), the programme is able to provide two annual travel grants to partially or fully cover research stays by students at institutions abroad for the purpose of obtaining an international Doctorate mention.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
