This international and interdisciplinary Master's program trains specialists in the conservation, management and development of heritage from the 20th to the 21st century. In a "mixed" approach combining technology and culture, modernity and memory, the program aims to look into scenarios where urban heritage is rehabilitated/redeveloped to bring territorial dynamics back to the forefront through a caring and sustainable approach.

CURRICULUM

The curriculum spans two years. The Master’s uses innovative and immersive teaching methods. Classes are taught jointly by the Université Jean Monnet and the ENTPE. The approach is local as well as European and global. This track is backed by an international network of partners (higher education institutions, companies, cities, foundations) involved in the training program, internships and research.
