We have a new partner: ETH-Zurich, the most prestigious technology university in the world (with 21 Nobel laureates, like Albert Einstein, in its 150 years of existence), has just signed an agreement with UPM that officially recognizes MCH as one of its programs, validating this master with the same recognition than the rest of postgraduate courses of ETH-Zurich.
So, MCH is back, stronger than ever and with a new name: “Master UPM / ETH in Architecture and Collective Housing”. This is the first agreement between UPM and ETH Zurich for an official postgraduate program, based on the importance and commitment of MCH with excellence. Like ETH-Zurich, we combine teachers of international prestige (like Anne Lacaton, Alejandro Aravena, Riken Yamamoto, etc.) with a thorough participant selection process, in order to make the best out of this course. After eight editions, architects and experts have rated MCH as one of the best architecture master´s programs in the world.
Next year’s program (2017) has been established by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and co-designed with ETH professors: it provides a unique, excellent and comprehensive course of further education on the subject of Housing. “For ETH it offers a unique opportunity for cooperation, in that there is no need to invent and build up a similar course at ETH itself. It is also an opportunity for the expansion of our network within the Latin cultural environment”, said the ETH-Zurich spokesman during the signing of the agreement.
