Conservation and Restoration

 Valuing and giving a future to Heritage            

 

The master's programme in Conservation and Restoration, combined with a bachelor's degree in the same field, offers the education needed to enter the profession of conservator-restorer in accordance with the current international standards and recommendations. IPT is the institution that has been offering training in Conservation and Restoration in Portugal and access to the profession of conservator-restorer for the longest time (since 1989).

Multidisciplinary in nature, the course takes place in constant contact with real situations in the laboratory and in situ, and the training is based on disciplines specifically of Conservation and Restoration, disciplines of Exact and Natural Sciences and disciplines of Arts and Humanities. Equally important is the combination of theory and practice that exists on the course, which allows the study of works from a technical and material point of view and from a historical-artistic point of view, and on this basis decide in a sustained manner what to do with the works that need intervention and how to do it, and finally carry out the treatment.

Objectives

The course aims to train professionals that will be able to access the conservator-restorer profession in accordance with international standards and recommendations in Conservation, in particular the European Network for Teaching Conservation and Restoration (ENCoRE), which has IPT as a member, and the European Confederation of Conservative-Restorers Organisations (ECCO). In order to accomplish this, the course is closely related with the Bachelor's Degree in Conservation and Restoration, so the two together provide the five years training, which is indispensable for access the profession. In a more specific way, the course aims to develop and deepen the knowledge acquired in the Bachelor degree and, moreover, develop skills to, in a creative, critical, independent and interdisciplinary way, design, plan and integrate products and conservation and restoration processes, according to the standards and international best practices.

Professional Goals

On completion of two courses of study in Conservation and Restoration totalling a 5-year training (licenciatura+mestrado), students are expected to be prepared to access the conservator-restorer profession according to international standards and recommendations for this activity sector, namely the European Network for Conservation-Restoration Education (ENCoRE), of which IPT is a member, and the European Confederation of Conservator-restorers' Organisations (ECCO).

Graduates from this master's program can be responsible for any conservation / restoration intervention, namely in cultural assets already classified or submitted for classification - which, according to the Portuguese law, requires 5-year training in conservation and restoration (Decree-Law No. 140/2009) and 5 years of professional experience.

Apart from conservation and restoration related activities, graduates from this master's degree can also be engaged in the safeguard, enhancement and preservation of cultural assets in a wide range of organisations such as central and local government bodies, museums, charities, foundations, monuments, palaces, churches, convents, archaeological sites, antiquaries, auctioneers, property carriers, property management companies, conservation/restoration project offices and science/technology research laboratories.
