The Master in Construction Research, Technology and Management in Europe takes a year and attendance is required, having a requirement of 80%. Besides, the course is full-time, and not compatible with work.

The course is divided into two periods of study:

The first period is the taught part of the course. This stage lasts approximately six months (two trimesters). This period has a weight of 40 ECTS credits and is spent in two different EU countries: Spain and Germany.

The second period is the practice part and is completed with practices and a final dissertation. This period is undertaken after the completion of the taught part, it could last until five months and may be carried out in any of the partner universities or in companies occasionally offering this opportunity, depending on the student’s choice and availability of the companies. This practice part is mandatory in the Masters programme and has a credit weight of 20 ECTS.

The schedule of each subject will be ready for the students one week before class. In any case, the students must always be available from Monday to Friday from 08:30 to 19:00, except holidays.

Evaluations will take place at the end of the term by exams and/or coursework. Exams of the first term will be taken in mid December and exams of the second term at the end of March, students having to carefully observe and respect the deadlines for coursework settled by each lecturer.

Attainment of the requisite number of credits from both taught modules and the practical part will enable a student to achieve a Master level (60 ECTS credits).
