J. Quesada-Polo, R. Pérez-delHoyo

University of Alicante (SPAIN)
Within the Higher Education context, and especially in the field of Urbanism, it is very important to approach teaching methodologies to the logic of the world of work. This approach allows improving the employability of recent graduates as well as achieving sustainable employability in the future for architects and engineers. The education oriented to the exercise of the profession promotes in the students the development of aptitudes, abilities and skills that are necessary to function effectively in the social and productive environment. In this regard, this paper aims to describe the experience developed at the University of Alicante, specifically in the studies in Architecture and the subject of 'Urban Planning that is taught in the last year of the degree. The course provides students with the technical and legal tools to address the planning of cities and their territory in real contexts. For this purpose, it is deepened the understanding and exercise of planning as a tool and discipline for the implementation of urbanism by studying the different types of plans. The present work shows the methods used in the subject for this purpose, allowing to bring academic training a little closer to professional activity.
