Managed by the Internship and Training Service and employment



The Internship Service and employment is dedicated, on the one hand, to generate opportunities through the continuous contact with the most relevant programs of study and companies in the architecture sector and, on the other hand, to provide students with the necessary training to take advantage of them. In addition, students interact on a daily basis with professionals who have a high hiring power.

The Study program includes external internships aimed at giving the student first-hand experience of professional practice, putting into practice the knowledge acquired throughout the programme's teaching period.

The placements are assessed by a team of internal and external tutors. The external tutors of the institutions where the students carry out the internships are responsible for the appropriate selection and integration of the students in the study or business, paying special attention to the use of the internship and the adaptation of the students to their respective teams.

They use simulation software (Design Builder, Passive House standard, SimaPro...) and monitoring equipment to verify the real behaviour of buildings (sensors, datalogger, thermo-flowmeter, blower door, thermographic cameras).

The direct relationship of Master's Degree with the projects of research of the department Construction, Installations and Structuresof the School of Architecture, as well as the synergies with other national and international groups of research make the MDGAE a programme of training that incorporates the latest advances and results in environmental innovation and technologies of the Building.

Case method

The programme uses the case method as a system of teaching, which consists of solving real problems involving thorough analysis of the facts and proposal of solutions and alternatives. To get the most out of it, student is required to prepare each case individually and then discuss it in a team before attend at discussion on class directed by the teacher. It is a process that enriches learning due to the contributions of the other class colleagues and the solution proposed by the teacher.

-Case discussion. Through the analysis of real cases, students and academic staff engage in a process of in-depth discussion about the circumstances faced by a professional in the world of architecture.

-Simulation of professional situations. The starting point is a scenario similar to those faced in the practice of the architect's profession so that the student, personally and by group, adopts different roles and acquires the work habits that characterise the profession.
