The aim of the program is to fully instruct students not only in the theories of the deontology and methodology concerning the protection and restoration of historical buildings, but also in the practices regarding materials and technologies, which are nowadays internationally applied in restoration projects. The program also aims to provide further technical knowledge in the area of conservation and restoration of historical structures and monuments and it is intended to provide the educational platform to encourage the development of competent, confident and inquisitive postgraduates who are able to link restoration and conservation theory with practice.

Through the process of close examination and identification of the subject-matter, the students acquire the necessary assets allowing them to formulate compatible proposals for repairing, reinforcing, restoring or even changing the use of a historical building. The successful completion of the program requires also the submission of a research paper and a master’s thesis, covering a topic related to conservation and restoration of monuments or other relevant historical structures.
