Architecture seeks to respond to the challenges of a changing world, particularly with regard to the design and composition of modern cities. Geared towards nowadays’ major issues, this programme covers not only more technical areas in the field of Civil Engineering, but also more artistic aspects related to design and conceptual perception. Architects thus have the necessary tools to execute projects, namely in the areas of urban renewal, conservation and rehabilitation of buildings and public spaces.


The Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) launched the Architecture course in 1998 with the purpose of training architects in a culture of rigour, with high technical knowledge, enabling them to establish an effective dialogue with other experts with whom they must interact in order to develop architecture projects without, however, neglecting the artistic and cultural component.

The study plan is developed around the architecture project and includes the areas of basic sciences, architectural culture and technologies. At the end of the course, students shall develop a dissertation included in the final project. The teaching method used in Project is focused on the resolution of problems and on experimentation. It is taught through a sequence of analyses and programmes of intervention within the context of buildings and urban areas, ranging from a very elementary level and reduced requirements to a complex one allowing students to be integrated in an environment that is close to the working life.

As the IST is a university traditionally oriented to the teaching of engineering sciences, the course contents will allow students to acquire skills in the technical aspects and ensure the efficiency of proposed solutions. As happens in the best European engineering courses, and in cooperation with prestigious schools in this area, students and future architects of the IST will be qualified to communicate in an easy way with all stakeholders linked to the construction and buildings and to urban planning.

Career prospects 
Architects trained at Técnico are qualified to practice professional activity in Architecture, Planning, Urbanism, Rehabilitation and Urban Regeneration. They can exercise it as specialized technical staff of private companies and public institutions, or as self-employed professionals, being able to develop activities such as: • Project; • Elaboration of territorial plans; • Urban management; • Conservation of architectural heritage; • Consultancy; • Teaching; • Research.
