At the Central University of Venezuela the practice of the urban, began in 1941 when the School of Architecture was created. In 1944 began teaching, as a Department of the School of Engineering. In 1946 it was attached to the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences and in 1948 graduated the first class of the School of Architecture. By Rectoral Resolution, on October 20, 1953 his status was raised to Architecture and Urbanism Faculty, beginning teaching activities in 1957 on the campus of the University City, designed by Carlos Raúl Villanueva and Declared World Heritage of Humanity in 2.000. Our structure includes Pre-graduate studies, Post-graduate studies in Urban Design, Urban Economics and Urban Transport; Planning and Local Management, Landscape Architecture, Preservation of Heritage and Museology, as well as a Doctorate in Urban Planning and Architecture. We have three Institutes of Urbanism Research (IU), City Center for the People and Construction Techniques (IDEC), plus two university companies for strategic alliances and university extension works (INSURBECA and TEXNE).
