IE University in Spain has introduced a Masters in Architecture program specifically targeted towards global architects who are dedicated to sustainability and social impact. The program, offered in Madrid and Amsterdam, will enable students to become qualified architects in Spain and other European Union countries. The course is designed for professionals who already have international experience and are passionate about sustainability and social impact. The full-time program, taught in English over ten months, consists of three core elements.

The final thesis project is led by Dutch architect Ben van Berkel from UNStudio, an architectural firm based in Amsterdam. Spanish architect Fuensanta Nieta leads the architectural design and building construction modules. The third component is a design management module comprising three courses that provide students with business training and entrepreneurial skills within the field of architecture and design.

“We architects have a key role to play in building a sustainable future,” commented David Goodman, dean of the IE University School of Architecture and Design. “That’s why we need to join forces to have the greatest impact. And the aim of the new Architecture Professional Licensure is to work in that direction – to train young architects and designers with an international profile who will create a more sustainable, beautiful, and just world for all.”

Additionally, during the program, students will have the opportunity to travel to Amsterdam and work closely with the team at UNStudio. To encourage exceptional candidates, IE University will award one incoming student the UNStudio Merit Scholarship annually, providing up to 30% of their full tuition fees and the possibility of a paid internship at UNStudio after graduation.
