Objectives and Technology

The main objective of the School of Architecture at the Universidad Europea de Canarias is to accompany all students along a journey of experiential learning wholly focused on their professional future. We combine the best human knowledge—transmitted by our expert faculty—with the most advanced technology, so that students fulfil their potential, reach their personal and professional goals, and add value to the world.

Modern technical training involves both the theoretical and practical learning of applied technologies. Universidad Europea does exactly that, adding its innovative spirit to the mix for that extra differential factor. In each subject and course, we teach students the discipline’s timeless principles, while also integrating new technologies to prepare them to tackle our changing world with confidence and constantly updated knowledge.

Facilities

Our facilities are designed to provide theoretical and technical-analytical training for versatile professional profiles from Architecture, Engineering and Science, favouring personal and transversal skills as demanded by our current socio-economic context. Therefore, the facilities of the School of Architecture are specific spaces and resources (both digital and manual) for the acquisition of professional competences through hands-on learning.

Resources:

  • High-availability lab for students to work on projects outside of class.

  • Theory classrooms with Clevershare digital whiteboards with dual monitors, in accordance with the extended classroom system.

  • Library with a lending system, with updated and relevant volumes for each subject of each degree.

  • Access to a vast digital collection with some 48,000 electronic resources, thanks to access to Universidad Europea’s CRAI "Dulce Chacón" Library: Reference databases, digital journal collections and academic e-books available 24/7.

  • Materials and systems display with more than 250 samples.

  • Sketch display.

Technical Control Tools Available to Students and Faculty:

  • Thermographic camera

  • Sclerometer

  • Moisture meter

  • Material detector

  • Laser distance meter

  • Registration cameras

  • Thickness gauge

  • Hydraulic press

  • Zeiss binoculars with digitaliser

  • HP DesignJet 800 plotter (A0) and Canon DJ210 plotter (A1)

  • 3D printing station, with a BQ Hephestos 2 printer, and an auxiliary table for 3D work

  • Computer equipment in both the technical and computer lab

  • Imaging lab with four 27-inch, 5k iMacs, connected to customised keyboards

  • HTC Vive VR helmets with motion-sensor equipment, for real 3D reproduction of students’ projects

  • Photo lab, with reporting and playback equipment such as continuous lighting and flash. Infrared flash equipment. DSLR digital cameras with macro and interchangeable lenses for mockups.

  • AWS virtual labs equipped with all the software necessary for all programme subjects, in fully operational versions. All students have access to all necessary software, such as CYPE, AutoCAD, Revit, Adobe Creative Suite, etc.

  • XR Lab: VR and AR lab for students to apply what they learn, with a VR station featuring biometric contour sensors for space simulation.

Educational and Technological Resources

Our School approaches learning as a synthesis between practical knowledge and the digital tools with which it’s applied, which continuously evolve with the discipline. Digitalisation enriches the learning process and the student-faculty relationship through the advanced use of the virtual campus and technology: virtual simulation, gamification, VR and digital labs, and more.

All of these reinforce learning outcomes, both in terms of building a knowledge base and applying it to real life. This specific training in application software not only enhances individual working capabilities by improving the way professional information and documentation is generated, but it also multiplies students’ scope by enabling them to learn from the experience of this multi-professional integration.
