The European Master of Diagnosis and Repair of Buildings (EMDiReB) is a postgraduate university programme, supported by the European Commission through the Erasmus Mundus Programme. It is a one-year-and-a-half masters course (90 ECTS in three semesters of 30 ECTS each), focused on diagnosis, repair, rehabilitation and improvement of buildings and urban spaces.
Open to: EU and non-EU students
Scholarship: full under Erasmus Mundus
The training offered has the following objectives:
* To provide solid core training for specialists, which will prepare them to undertake the diagnosis, repair, rehabilitation and improvement of buildings and urban spaces.
* To provide integral training to enable specialists to write reports and projects, technically supervise construction work and carry out executive management activities associated with the processes involved.
* To provide more advanced training, drawing together the knowledge and experience accumulated by three European universities in such important fields as building diagnosis and repair. The consortium contributes and enriches the programme with three different areas of specialization associated with complementary aspects of architectural activity.
The partner institutions of the Masters consortium are:
Universidad de Sevilla (US). Spain
Università degli Studi Mediterranea di Reggio Calabria (UNIRC). Italy
Politechnika Lubelska (PL). Poland
The most advanced societies show great concern for the quality of their constructions, their urban spaces and the comfort of their users. This demand applies to both new constructions and old buildings.
Considerations regarding energy efficiency and sustainability tend to prioritize the rehabilitation of existing buildings over the construction of new ones.
In fact the last few years have seen greater investment growth in the building repair and rehabilitation sector than in that of new-build homes.
In this situation, the training offered by EMDiReB is particularly opportune,
