  • Objective of work

The core mission of our work is the creation and preservation of architecture and urbanism, encompassing all aspects from planning and design to execution. This involves not only bringing new architectural concepts to life but also ensuring the careful conservation of existing urban and architectural heritage. Our approach integrates innovative design practices with traditional values, aiming to sustainably develop environments that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Through this dual focus, we commit to enhancing the built environment for future generations while respecting and revitalizing our historical and cultural landscapes.

  • Areas of Action

The Cuban Architecture Engineering Program equips students for versatile roles within the architectural and urban planning fields. Graduates are prepared to excel in several key areas:

  • Designers of Architecture and Urbanism: Students are trained to conceptualize and create innovative architectural designs and urban planning solutions that are sustainable, aesthetically pleasing, and responsive to the needs of communities. This role emphasizes the integration of modern design principles with a deep respect for cultural heritage.
  • Investors in Various Institutions: Graduates are also prepared to act as savvy investors within the architectural and urban development sectors. This involves identifying and managing opportunities for sustainable development, leveraging financial and material resources to bring architectural projects to fruition while ensuring they meet societal needs and environmental standards.
  • Urban Planners at Municipal, Provincial, and National Levels: The program trains students to engage in urban planning across different administrative levels. They learn to develop comprehensive plans that address the complexities of urban growth and development, ensuring that such plans are inclusive, equitable, and forward-thinking, catering to both current and future generations.
  • Executors of Works: As executors, graduates are skilled in overseeing the construction process, ensuring projects are completed within scope, on time, and within budget. They apply their knowledge of design and construction techniques to guide projects from conception through to completion, ensuring high standards of quality and compliance with regulatory requirements.
  • Researchers and Teachers: The program fosters a commitment to ongoing learning and knowledge dissemination. Graduates are prepared to contribute to the advancement of the architectural field through research, exploring new materials, technologies, and methodologies. As teachers, they are equipped to educate future generations of architects, sharing insights and inspiring innovation.

These areas of action reflect the program’s commitment to forming professionals who are not only technically proficient but also visionary in their approach to architecture and urbanism, capable of leading transformative projects that enhance the built environment.
