Description

TPTI, an Erasmus Mundus Master Program

TPTI is an Erasmus Mundus Master program offered by seven partner universities:

  • - University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne (France)
  • - University of Evora (Portugal)
  • - University of Padua (Italy)
  • - University of Alicante (Spain)
  • - Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Sfax (Tunisia)
  • - Polytechnic University of Prague (Czech Republic)
  • - Federal University of Technology of Parana (Brazil)

The TPTI acronym stands for IndustrialTechniques, Territories and Heritage. TPTI offers a two-year highly qualified training program, and is designed for students or professionals wishing to develop a comprehensive (methodological, theoretical and practical) approach to the investigation and enhancement of industrial cultural heritage. The focus of the master is on historical issues leading to an in depth analysis and enhancement ofindustrial sites. It provides its students with scientific knowledge developed through research and action. Students improve their practical experience through internships and field visits. They have also the opportunity to learn several languages (English, French, Portuguese and Italian) and spend a period of specialty mobility in various European and non-Europeans countries.

The TPTI master program awards a Joint Diploma, which is coordinated by the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and fully recognized by the University of Padova and the University of Évora.

Thus TPTI master graduates may pursue their studies at doctoral level (the TPTI Consortium offers a PhD Program in applied history, that is HERITECHS); they may also undertake careers within public Institutions and private organizations (as experts, consultants, managers, etc.).

Areas of Specialization

One for each University

The aim of the TPTI master program is to combine three areas of specialization, which are:

  • - History of Technology

It is developed in the first semester (S1) at the University of Pantheon-Sorbonne inParis, which offers a Master course in History of Science and History of Technology.

  • - Management and restoration of historical and cultural heritage

It is developed in the second semester (S2) at the University of Padova, which offers a master program in Historical Sciences with a specific curriculum in Industrial techniques, heritage and landscape.

  • - Management and conservation of industrial heritage and industrial landscapes

It is developed in the third semester (S3) at the University of Evora, which offers a master program in Management and enhancement of historical and cultural heritage.

Career Opportunities

Working or studying with a TPTI Diploma

Students may pursue their studies at doctoral level (the TPTI Consortium offers a PhD Program in applied history, HERITECHS) , in which case they need a score of minimum 16/20 on the master’s degree. They may also undertake careers within public Institutions and private organizations (museums, inventories, collections dealing with industrial and technical archaeology); they may operate as cultural mediators and consultants (supporting museum design projects or management and development of monumental sites and structures; designing cultural paths and itineraries for industrial tourism); they may as well choose to work in the field of communication (scientific and technical journalism).

TPTI Structure

Organization of the semesters

The TPTI master program offers a variety of learning activities: i.e. classes, lectures, seminars, fieldwork, source analysis, critical bibliographical reviews, tutored group projects and individual meetings with faculty members.
The master program is divided into four semesters. The three areas of specialization are developed in S1, S2, and S3, in which students follow a defined mobility scheme: Semester 1 in Paris; Semester 2 in Padova and Semester 3 in Evora. During the fourth Semester (S4) students travel to their supervisor’s University and do the research work that is necessary for their final dissertation. They may also be engaged in a further mobility period to one of the extra European TPTI partner Universities (“Specialty mobility”).

Based on the project presented in the application, each student is assigned to a reference professor (Supervisor) at one of the three TPTI promoting Universities (Paris 1, Padova or Evora). The students have to contact and are acquainted with the teacher at the beginning of the master. Their reference professor will guide them through the course, maintaining regular contacts and helping them in their decisions (on specialty mobility, internship, etc.)

The schedule for the two years is as follows.

Semester 1 - Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne

October – February

13 teaching weeks

30 ECTS

Semester 2 - University of Padova

February – June

Semester 3 – University of Evora
