The urban growth greatly facilitated the own economic growth in the years leading up to the economic crisis. The collapse of the speculative bubble, coupled with the end of the real estate upside cycle, has left an over-sized, underused real estate property and, in many cases, a questionable urban quality.

The commitment to the rehabilitation and renovation of the existing city in front of the construction of a new city is a fundamental challenge of today's societies, whose challenge is the contribution to economic progress, not forgetting the requirements of sustainable urban development whose regulation makes it necessary to combine a whole series of different factors: the environment, quality of life, energy efficiency, the provision of services, social cohesion, etc.

The need to reinforce the knowledge of the current Degree in relation to built heritage and urban regeneration, justify to give shape and sense to this Master.
