The TPTI : Technical, Heritage, Territories of the Industry programme from Université Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne is jointly offered by seven Universities: the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (France), the University of Padova (Italy), Evora (Portugal), Alicante (Spain), the Czech Technical University in Prague (Czech Republic); the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of Sfax (Tunisia) and the Federal University of Technology - Paraná (Brazil).
These Institutions have developed a scientific network which focuses on the history of technical thought, social history of industry, industrial archaeology and regional development. The course is mainly addressed to historians, architects and experts in the preservation of cultural heritage, as well as economists and managers specialized in cultural heritage. The course lasts 24 months and is worth 120 ECTS credits.
Dialogue is the keyword in the TPTI master; it applies to historical and heritage studies, archaeology and economics as well as crafts and industry. The students background is implemented with notions and expertise in different fields of study.
In order to avoid fragmentation and to make sure students understand, despite their mobility from one semester to the other, they are following a single curriculum, a joint webinar is organized once a month: students attending the two running editions of the Master course (first year students and second year students) participate in the joint webinar as part of their specialization seminars, that areorganized along the master.
The master course develops three complementary areas of teaching. Each degree awarding Partner University offers a set of courses in one area: Economics applied to cultural heritage; Archaeology and local development tools; Technology and sustainability.
Students attending the TPTI Erasmus Mundus Master Degree Course have the unique opportunity of studying in three European Universities - University of Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne, France; University of Padova, Italy; University of Evora, Portugal - and completing their mobility programme by carrying out a short Specialization mobility ("Mobilité de spécialité") period at one the non degree awarding Universities belonging to the TPTI Consortium.
Through both lectures and field activities, TPTI students receive the knowledge tools that should allow them to fully and practically understand crafts and industrial technical culture. The organization of the master is identical in all three partner universities: LU (learning units), language courses and ECTS are equally distributed throughout the three semesters of mobility.
Students who have been awarded a first cycle European University degree or other equivalent degree are elegible for selection (Licenciatura, Bachelor degree, Diploma di laurea di primo livello). The students' main areas of specialization may be, as an example, in history, geography and urban planning, archaeology, architecture. The Master programme is also open to architects, professionals working in the field of cultural enhancement (archaeology, museology, museum curators), economists specializing in the management of cultural heritage, professionals specializing in the management / restoration of cultural heritage (engineers, paleo-metallurgists), field archaeologists and archaeologists.
