The TPTI - Techniques, Patrimoines, Territoires de L'Industrie: Histoire, Valorisation, Didactique programme at University of Padova is a two year international graduate program coordinated by the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne(France) and offering a joint degree with the University of Padua (Italy) and the University of Evora (Portugal).


This graduate TPTI - Techniques, Patrimoines, Territoires de L'Industrie: Histoire, Valorisation, Didactique programme at University of Padova focuses on the history of technology and technological heritagerelating to objects, buildings, urban planning, and landscapes. 

It is intented for both students and professionals who want to deepen their knowledge in these fields of study, either to move forward with a career of teaching or research, or to work within the cultural sector (museum studies, management of cultural institutional heritage and cultural mediation between communities and government on both a national and international level).

Career opportunities

By adding to knowledge gathered from history about practices relating to culture and knowledge and the ability to analyse and understand scientifically-documented techniques connecting with society and the transfer of information, this Master Degree is able to deliver to students what they need in order to succeed from three main perspectives:

- Research professionals in the history of technology, heritage and industrial archeology;

- Specialists who focus on the value of techniques in the framework of, for example, technical or scientific museums, centers of scientific, technical and industrial culture, associations, institutions for the dissemination of scientific and technical culture, or scientific or technical journals;

- Experts able to understand and manage technical environments. This expertise concerns as much of a diagnosis of ancient environments (hydraulic, energy networks, intangible and material industrial heritage), as that of technical ecosystems (low consumption houses, establishment of wind farms, treatment of industrial waste, telemedicine) basing the work on field analysis and comparative studies.
