Best Doctorate Studies in Engineering in Portugal 2017. APRESENTAÇÃO O doutoramento em Arquitetura abre um espaço de formação e investigação avançada de alto nível, destinado não só a quem está na academia, mas também aos que exercem prática profissional, para quem este curso apresenta a possibilidade de aprofundar conhecimentos e desenvolver competências na área da Arquitetura. Integra o trabalho prático do projeto em arquitetura como forma de investigação avançada, posicionando-o no contexto da investigação cientifica. Pretende desenvolver-se o curso em ambiente internacional, de forma a assegurar o posicionamento dos alunos em meios competitivos globais e dotá-los de competências equiparáveis ao nível académico internacional; proporcionar conhecimentos transdisciplinares sobre questões conceptuais, formais e práticas com aplicação na investigação, no pensamento crítico, no planeamento e na realização de obras tendo como âmbitos de enquadramento a paisagem, de um modo abrangente, bem como as questões da natureza do património edificado (monumental, industrial, civil), de um modo mais específico. SAÍDAS PROFISSIONAIS Considerando-se o valor da abordagem culturalista, com fundações no domínio técnico, da Arquitetura reconhece-se a sua abrangência e pertinência num amplo espectro de áreas. Não obstante tal abrangência identificam-se domínios mais específicos das valências de uma formação avançada em arquitectura, sobretudo numa abordagem "by design", tais como: ateliers de prática profissional da arquitectura; ensino universitário (1º, 2º e 3º Ciclos); integração em equipas de investigação avançada (pós-doutoramento); integração em equipas de trabalho de âmbito do planeamento e intervenção sobre o território e sobre o património edificado, nomeadamente em estruturas municipais, regionais e nacionais.
