This course is for professionals with at least two years of experience in the fields of study who can prove that they have a qualification equivalent to four years of higher education. It is possible to enrol in the course using recognition of professional experience.
Benefits of the program
The training is based on activities jointly carried out by the EUP pedagogical team and urban project practitioners, and combining various pedagogical formats (case studies, workshops, travel, conferences, scenarios.). This diversity, as well as the exchanges it generates between participants from various backgrounds, is one of the benefits of training.
By the end of the course, participants will have acquired the following skills: Creating an urban project that is coherent with the global development strategy of a territory and their forms of local public action; Developing and making an urban project operational; Producing knowledge and analysis and making it available in fields related to urban planning; Developing the ability to analyse territorial policies and urban projects.
Application period: From April to December. Registration forms can be downloaded on the EUP's website (www.eup.fr).
Schedule of studies
The course is organized into 10 successive modules (36 hours each), grouped into 3 units. The course offers transversal activities such as preparing a thesis (September), workshops (February to June) and a study trip (early July).
Your future career
Graduates will be able to progress in their current positions, improve in the roles they perform and/or undertake retraining. They will be able to work in development, town planning and urban project departments in local and state authorities, in social housing agencies, in real estate development, with urban service operators, with developers, etc.
Les diplômé.es seront en mesure de progresser dans les postes occupés, d’évoluer dans les missions qu’ils et elles effectuent et/ou d’engager une reconversion. Ils et elles pourront exercer leurs activités dans des services en charge de l’aménagement, de l’urbanisme et des projets urbains au sein des collectivités territoriales et des services de l’État, dans des organismes de logement social, dans la promotion immobilière, chez des opérateurs de services urbains, chez des aménageurs, etc.▪ Former des professionnel.les en mesure de concevoir, de piloter les différentes phases du projet urbain et d’en coordonner les multiples intervenant.es. ▪ Familiariser aux enjeux, logiques et dispositifs d’action des maîtrises d’ouvrage. ▪ Sensibiliser aux risques, incertitudes et itérations des projets urbains complexes.
The main objectives of the course are to train professionals to design and manage the different phases of an urban development project and coordinate the various stakeholders; familiarize them with issues, make them aware of the risks, uncertainties and iterations of complex urban projects.

La formation compte 500 heures. Elle se déroule chaque semaine, le vendredi et le samedi, de janvier à décembre (avec une interruption en juillet et août). Elle est précédée d’une journée de Conférence introductive (en décembre), organisée par la promotion antérieure.
Modalités d'admission en FC (formation continue) :
Les admissions sont effectuées au fur et à mesure des candidatures. Elles sont prononcées après l’examen du dossier de candidature et un entretien individuel.
The schedule of the course makes it unsuitable for international exchanges. The study trip is usually international.
Major thematics of Research
Le master de l'EUP est en relation étroite avec les activités scientifiques développées au sein de trois laboratoires qui constituent les principaux supports de recherche de la formation: le Lab'Urba, le LVMT (Laboratoire Ville Mobilité Transport) et le LATTS (Laboratoire Techniques, Territoires et Sociétés).
Le parcours s'insère dans une mention co-accréditée par l'Université Gustave Eiffel et l'Université Paris-Est Créteil (UPEC).
An urban project (construction or renovation of a "part” of a city) must be consistent with the global local development strategy. This first session aims to present the process from diagnosis to the formulation of the strategy and its implementation within the framework of the different actors, institutions and procedures. The objective is therefore to clarify the differences between a strategic approach and a project-based approach, as well as the conditions of their articulation.
These sessions aim to help provide a better understanding of land and property markets and their observation at a local level. The objective is to provide recommendations for: 1 - an understanding of the local challenges of market knowledge, particularly its impact on the management methods for land and real estate assets used by local actors (local authorities, semi-public companies, social housing offices); 2 - a first draft of specifications for planning real estate operations
Widespread access to cars and reduced travel times have given everyone greater freedom in their spatial strategies, but have also made cities as a whole more exposed to the negative effects of transport. What are the consequences for urban projects? Talks will reveal how certain issues related to transport and mobility have evolved in recent times (in particular concerning public transport planning and parking policies).
The aim of these sessions is to lead to the formulation of hypotheses or proposals in order to detail an urban project and its objectives and to identify the options in relation to political strategies. Theoretical classes and talks focus on presenting the basic legal and operational tools necessary to carry out diagnostic and feasibility studies leading to an urban project.
The organisation of urban consultations is an essential and delicate phase of the project process, for which students are provided with the basic tools, legal references and operational methodologies. In particular, the course covers interactions between urban and project planning and the links with project phasing; the timing of urban consultations, especially the preparatory phases; the operational set-up procedures and the legal context in which urban consultations take place.
This module provides teaching on: the strategic and operational dimensions of the concepts and challenges of urban and architectural planning; organisation in the field of planning between the contracting authority and contracting authority support, or even the project manager, and the relationships between these actors concerning orders and surveys, as well as the tools and skills required in the field of planning.
Based on a project, the aim of this workshop is to construct a framework of intervention for an urban development contracting authority. The objective is to enable the contracting authority to be in a position to place an order and to monitor the operation by guiding them on the basis of the defining issues of the project. Students must provide the necessary elements to do so. Methodological support is provided (particularly in the use of graphic/cartographic media).
The purpose of the study trip is to introduce students to urban project planning approaches used abroad. Students then produce two (group) pieces of work to hand in: an illustrated report for the EUP site and preparation for the December conference.
The objective is to provide students with an understanding of the foundations of the financial strategies of stakeholders in urban projects, as well as the main tools for financial decision-making. Students will also carry out reference analyses so that they have the elements they need to develop or evaluate a partnership agreement.
In planning and project work, it is no longer possible to assume that a series of decisions will be carried out in a coherent manner, leading in a linear fashion from a political choice to implementation in accordance with the decisions. The need for responsiveness and the taking account of the interests and rivalries between the actors calls for a restitution of the traditional approach, a renewal of the division of tasks. The aim of this module is to reconstruct these changes, present and analyse the solutions provided by certain operators, and finally to contribute to elaborating methodological solutions to allow students to: better assign tasks in a way that should lead to the adoption of the programme(s) making up the project (the what); allocate them better (the who), and finally plan them better (the when and the how).
At a time when questions relating to the management of resources are raised with increasing acuity, it is becoming necessary, when conducting urban projects, to set up monitoring systems and define relevant indicators to increase the visibility of financial risks, optimise the monitoring of the commitments of the actors involved (local authorities, operators, financial partners) and analyse the impact of the foreseeable evolution of the project on the finances of all concerned. Beyond that, it is also important to evaluate the project as a whole as well as its impact on the target audiences, in light of the objectives set by the project owner and the issues identified.
Project engineering takes account of the different tools presented during the training modules and integrates them into a transversal and coherent project logic. The work in this course combines the Financial Engineering, Operational Planning and Evaluation and Monitoring modules in a case study aimed at achieving this coherence and providing a representation of it that is simplified but close to the operational reality.
