Open Call

Masters in Urban and Building Conservation UCD


Call for Applications from UCD’s School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy

The MUBC programme (est. 1986) attracts practitioners from private and public architectural practice, urban and regional planners, engineers, archaeologists, surveyors, historians and other associated disciplines. Many MUBC graduates have profoundly changed the way that Ireland’s designed environment is perceived, planned, protected and developed; others have pursued distinguished careers overseas.

Modules in the initial semesters address skills and topics relevant to conservation: Research Methods for the Designed Environment (including visits to important relevant repositories); Conservation History, Theory and Policy; Case Studies and Reflective Practice (including lectures by distinguished practitioners); Materials, Technology and the Environment (including lectures on specialist conservation materials and skills). The group Urban Study researches, records and analyses the significance and nature of an Irish urban landscape.

The individual Building Study examines the history, form, construction and condition of an historic building. Study trips are organised to active conservation projects at home and abroad. Each student’s research masters thesis develops an exciting topic of personal interest into an in-depth piece of research valuable to both society and the profession. The programme is also an introductory vehicle for those wishing to pursue further research at PhD level.

Applications to be submitted by 1 June, 2017 for entry in September 2017.
