Urbanism

The doctoral programme in Urbanism is aimed at students who wish to continue their research training with the aim of completing and defending a doctoral thesis.

The main objective is to produce highly qualified researchers in the field of urbanism research. In line with this goal, the programme revolves around study and academic reflection on central themes of the history of urbanism and contemporary urban planning and forms of analysis and intervention at both the regional and urban scale.

The growing complexity of urban phenomena and their interactions, the impact of new technologies, and the increasingly significant international role played by cities require urban planners to develop appropriate intervention methods and instruments to act in this context.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. 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 five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

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 minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

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 maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

Access, admission and registration

Access profile

Students who hold one of the following research master's degree are eligible for admission to the programme without the requirement to complete any bridging courses:
• MBArch (master's degree in Advanced Studies in Architecture-Barcelona) of the ETSAB
• MISMeC (master's degree in Sustainable Intervention in the Built Environment) of the ETSAV
• MBLandArch (master's degree in Landscape Architecture), taught collaboratively by the ETSAB and the Barcelona School of Agri-Food and Biosystems Engineering (EEABB).
If students who hold degrees related to the programme (other than those indicated above) are admitted, the academic committee for the doctoral programme may require that they take specific bridging courses as a condition of admission. The courses required will be determined on a case-by-case basis, according to each applicant’s background and previous training.
The purpose of any additional training will be to ensure that students develop the competencies they will need to complete the doctoral programme.

Access requirements

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)

In addition, the following may apply:

  • Holders of an official degree awarded by a university in Spain or any other country in the European Higher Education Area, pursuant to the provisions of Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes official university course regulations, who have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on official university degrees, of which at least 60 must be at the master's degree level.
  • Holders of an official Spanish bachelor’s degree comprising at least 300 credits, as provided for by EU regulations. Holder of degrees of this kind must complete bridging courses unless the curriculum of the bachelor’s degree in question included research training credits equivalent in value to those which would be earned on a master's degree.
  • Holders of an official university qualification who, having passed the entrance examination for specialised medical training, have completed at least two years of a training course leading to an official degree in a health-sciences specialisation.
  • Holders of a degree issued under a foreign education system. In these cases, homologation is not required, but the UPC must verify that the degree certifies a level of training equivalent to an official Spanish master's degree and qualifies the holder for admission to doctoral studies in the country where it was issued. Admission on this basis does not imply homologation of the foreign degree or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to doctoral studies.
  • Holders of a Spanish doctoral qualification issued under previous university regulations.
  • Note 1: Doctoral studies entrance regulations for holders of an undergraduate degree awarded before the introduction of the EHEA (CG 47/02 2014)

    Note 2: Governing Council Decision 64/2014, which approves the procedure and criteria for assessing the fulfilment of academic admission requirements for doctoral studies by holders of non-homologated foreign degrees (CG 25/03 2014)

Admission criteria and merits assessment

Applications for admission must be accompanied by a CV (emphasising academic qualifications and research experience) and a 500-word covering letter (up to two letters of recommendation) that includes an explanation of the field of research that the applicant intends to focus on in their doctoral thesis.

The academic committee will consider applications based on the following weighted criteria:
• Academic record (45%)
• Curriculum vitae (35%)
• Covering letter (20%)

The academic committee for the doctoral programme is responsible for admission of students and will make admission decisions based on these criteria.

Training complements

Students who hold one of the following degrees are not required to take any bridging courses: MBArch (master’s degree in Advanced Studies in Architecture-Barcelona) of the ETSAB, MISMeC (master's degree in Sustainable Intervention in the Built Environment) of the ETSAV, and MBLandArch (master's degree in Landscape Architecture), delivered through collaboration between the ETSAB and the Barcelona School of Agri-Food and Biosystems Engineering (EEABB).

In the case of students with other entrance qualifications, the academic committee may specify bridging courses that must be completed. As a general rule, any bridging courses that students are required to take will be subjects from the master's degrees indicated above.

Bridging courses may provide research or cross-disciplinary training. In no case will doctoral students be required to enrol for more than 30 ECTS credits.

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 academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of 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 maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

Learning resources

The doctoral programme does not have its own material resources; it uses those of the UPC, particularly the resources of the Barcelona School of Architecture and the Vallès School of Architecture (classrooms, computer rooms, libraries, technical management unit, etc.) and those of the Department.

    Thesis abstract: This work strives to develop an interpretative reading of the process of configuration of the Amazonian territory of Ecuador, a vast territory with an enormous natural predominance and important biological and cultural diversity. The objective of this thesis is to contribute to the understanding of the construction of this territory, to its relearning of knowledge. The work is based on the idea that the traces in the Amazonian territory show the civilization disputes, the forms of territorial occupation of the indigenous peoples and nationalities have been systematically ignored and underestimated, which have been tried to be changed by imposing other patterns of territorial occupation. Dispersed forms of occupation have been considered a problem that must be corrected by concentrating the population in urban settlements. These logics have remained in tension during the last 500 years in which the particularities of the territory have also produced particular results in the configuration of the Ecuadorian Amazon, a configuration that is currently more drastically marked by new ideas that in practice replicate old habits. In order to understand these processes, the work presents four main chapters. The first one describes a long process of confrontation that began in the 16th century and lasted until the middle of the 20th century, in which a missionary project intends to impose new patterns of territorial occupation on indigenous peoples. The ways of occupying the territory are confronted and, although they are antagonistic, they mutually stimulate each other, concentration and dispersion appear as constants in this process that generally prefigures (not configures) the Amazonian territory we know today. The second chapter explains the existence of an internal colonization project developed by the State, which violently occupied and transformed the region in the second half of the 20th century. In this context, modern Amazonia is configured where the Amazonian cities emerge as a by-product, whose forms show their particularities, as they present their own characteristics as a result of the fusion of the important geographical and natural influences as well as the aftermath of the previous missionary project. The third chapter explains where and how the indigenous population settled, makes a historical approach to their transformations, and explains how these two opposing forms of territorial construction end up complementing each other. The fourth chapter explains the emergence of the "New Amazon" (2007 - 2017), a new regulatory framework and existing economic resources drive several urban projects, which from the State, intend to reverse years of abandonment and poverty, among its objectives is to improve the quality of life of indigenous population and nationalities. However, in practice, the opposite has been done, building projects that obviate the existing specificities, imposing exogenous patterns of territorial occupation that significantly change the ways of living, replicating colonial practices of past centuries. Finally, the work explains, from the ways of inhabiting the territory, how indigenous population continues to face challenges as great as those they faced in colonial times, but also demonstrates their capacity, not only of resistance, but also of adaptation to overcome the challenges.

    Thesis abstract: The subject of this doctoral thesis is the production of social housing in Brazil, studied from the diverse legacy built specifically in the city of São Paulo over the last hundred years. The main objective of this thesis is to highlight the potential of the social housing project as a tool for the construction of the city, through the elaboration of a critical panorama, with theoretical and project foundations that allow the identification of specific processes and currents of thought. The thesis is organized into two dialogic parts. Part I is structured in six chronologically ordered periods and proposes a panoramic view from the modern movement, through the trivialization of rationalization processes and the impoverishment of programmatic, morphological, and typological thinking, the financialization of social housing projects, to the conformation of new systems of social management, project conception and spatial organization that make up the alternatives proposed in the 21st century. Likewise, relationships are woven between the urban growth process of São Paulo and the dominant mode of social housing production, which is analyzed through urban plans, housing programs, and urban-residential projects carried out in each period. This study made it possible to determine currents of thought that organize the second part of the thesis. Thus, in Part II, we move from the chronological structure initially proposed to a conceptual classification that allows us to analyze in an analogous way the impact caused by different ways of conceiving and producing the social housing project, understood as a city project. The proposed method allows for an integrated understanding of public practices in the urban and housing sphere to classify, compare and evaluate, through the different social housing projects, the results produced at the scales of the city, the neighborhood, the residential building, and the housing unit. According to the five identified currents of thought, ten projects are analyzed and organized in pairs. The case studies are systematized according to the same parameters and criteria of graphic representation in their different scales, allowing the comparative analysis among them and determining the existence of a project culture.

    Thesis abstract: This thesis explores the in-between spaces of the contemporary city, and the role they have in promoting urban togetherness through interstitial practice. By looking at different processes that take place in the borderlands of fragmented environments, this work presents a series of theoretical debates and develops a framework of analysis based on three main approaches: the urban, the social, and the artistic, proposing a series of conceptual links between the territory, people-place relationships and the artistic practice. The focus of this work is based on the observation of different performative representations developed in the in-between spaces of Caracas, presented as a privileged scenario to understand the mechanisms of production and reproduction of urban disparities in contemporary cities. So, in-between spaces are introduced not only as the background for placing interstitial practice but active elements of interaction between difference, where issues of identity, power and domination may contribute to envision new discourses of coexistence.Contextual, historical and empirical work has been conducted both at a metropolitan scale, studying the Metropolitan Area of Caracas, and at a local scale, particularly analysing three in-between spaces in Chacao, El Valle and El Hatillo parishes. It has been examined the impact interstitial practice had in reducing social distances, and explored the extent to which they are actually contributing to tackling urban togetherness. The main problems identified in all cases are summarised under sectorial planning strategies, institutionalisation, territorial fragmentation, stigmatisation and targeting, concluding that interstitial practice becomes another process of territorial formation and political power.This thesis aims to contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of the city empowering the importance of in-between spaces as essential articulators to perceive it as an urban continuum. In discussing this argument, this research also attempts to contribute to the discipline of urbanism; from the moment that in-between spaces are detected as elements of urban interaction, the city leans towards the combination, the hybridisation and the mixture among its different territorial formations becoming a structured terrain where a new spatiality and different forms of urban life take place.

    Thesis abstract: Tourist attractions are an essential part of urban tourism. It is often thought that attractions are comparable to each other and that their impacts can be limited as if cities could manage their tourist flows as theme parks do. The difficulty of controlling urban tourism and tourist flows arises from cities since tourists and residents share space and services, making it impossible to delimit the exclusive use of one or another group. Due to this difficulty, rises the idea of looking for other tools to measure concentrations in cities.One of these is heatmaps. The study of the concentration of people/images/data in tourist spaces reflects that density depends more on the synergies between attractions than on attractions themselves. To corroborate it, we study primary and secondary attractions finding that no matter how relevant they are, they do not significantly impact their immediate surroundings unless they have another nearby and related attraction that allows them to strengthen and extend tourist flows. This flow makes it possible to energize certain areas, take advantage of synergies, and extend the concentration of visitors.

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.
