With more than 17 years of history, Zigurat Global Institute of Technology is a recognized educational institution in the architecture and engineering sector and, recently, it has also gained recognition as a digital business school. The trajectory of the institute over the years has brought together leading stakeholders in the international scene that guarantee the quality of our educational model.
Industry and academy underpin our master’s degrees
In order to ensure our students’ optimal and fast immersion in the labor market, Zigurat programs are accredited by both leading companies in the industry, as well as, by internationally recognized universities.
In addition to receiving the specific Zigurat studies certificate, issued as a guarantee of participation and completion of the program, and getting the software certifications of which our institution is an official school, students will obtain an university-specific master’s degree from the University of Barcelona, through the Institut de Formació Contínua – IL3.
The University of Barcelona (UB) is considered one of the best Spanish universities according to the independent ranking QS World University Rankings®, which measures the educational excellence of more than 1,200 universities around the world. According to the report, the UB is “among the 100 best universities in the world in 17 different subjects, almost double the rest of Spanish institutions.”
Academic excellence, our priority
Since the foundation of Zigurat in 2001, two of the main axes of the institution have been the pursuit of excellence and the contribution to innovation.
In order to achieve these two institutional objectives and to ensure that its students have the required qualifications in the sector, Zigurat is the official school of leading software companies in the industry such as Autodesk, Bentley Systems and CYPE Ingenieros, who certify the majority of our degrees.
Beyond the technological aspect, in the case of Building Information Modeling (BIM) programs, Zigurat has Academic Partners such as Canada BIM Council (CanBIM), in Canada, and BRE Academy and CIAT, in the United Kingdom, that help to bring our students into closer contact with the reference countries and the reality of the adoption of this collaborative methodology. In the case of BRE Academy, Zigurat offers its students the opportunity to apply for the BRE Global BIM Level 2 (UK) Certification, for which they are prepared once their training at the institution has been completed.
