This is a part of Module 7, Area Development of the Bachelor Civil Engineering. See here for the complete description of this module.|
Civil engineering projects, including area development projects, are generally implemented in collaboration between a wide range of actors. The early involvement of diverse organizations, groups or individuals who can either affect or are affected by a project is essential to create a high quality, widely supported project plan.
