The 14th edition of the Advanced Masters in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Constructions started in early September 2020. Coursework is being held in Guimaraes (Portugal).
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic brought hard times to face-to-face advanced higher education, but twelve enthusiastic students from ten countries (Afghanistan, Canada, Greece, Iran, Italy, Jordan, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia and the USA) are taking part in the 14th edition of SAHC.
Check here the relevant case studies where students are working on.
Check below the comments from some of the students:
B. Scheuer (USA)
I was always curious about the ingenious works of past engineers and architects. My curiosity became my goal for the future, which the SAHC program will help me to achieve.
Now that I am part of SAHC, my interest is growing and it’s helping me to become a specialist on the field. Nevertheless, SAHC is helping my overall professional career in every aspect.
Dealing with deadlines, managing stress and solving every kind of problem is what awaits in the future and within the program we are being prepared in the best way.
S. Paz (Peru)
My experience in field of built heritage conservation allowed me to identify new challenges in my professional development through understanding of behavior of historic buildings in a holistic and integrated way.
That’s why I chose SAHC, it was one of the biggest challenges in my career as an architect, a program specialized in structural engineering. It’s a challenge to learn new concepts and understand the structural approach as a backbone in the study of a historic building.
Following this program is a challenge and constant learning, which also feeds on the coexistence and cultural exchange of all the program participants and the background that each one is generous to share.
