Aims
  1. At the end of the module’s first block, students are able to recall ten types of urban infrastructures, their state, purpose, and vulnerability.
  2. At the end of the module’s first block, students can express five grand challenges, and two distinct trajectories of smart city engineering.
  3. At the end of the module’s first block, students can explain the barriers of smart city realization, criticize the smart city rhetoric, and state why few Smart Cities examples exist in practice.
  4. At the end of the module, students can explain how Robotics, Geotechnical Engineering, Geophysics, and Informatics support the construction of Smart urban life & mobility improvements.
  5. And the end of the module, students can manage design processes in a structured way by using techniques and methodologies
  6. At the end of the module, students are able to implement concepts from Robotics, Geotechnical Engineering, Geophysics, and Informatics to a smart city design project.
  7. At the end of the module, students are able to present their smart city engineering design to peers and practitioners.
  8. At the end of the module’s design project, students are able to integrate their domain knowledge with that of fellow students from other fields (peer-learning).
Content
The contents will slightly change, the general setup remains the same

Students participating in this module are introduced to the opportunities and challenges in society’s transition towards Smart City Urban Environment. While exploring this theme, this module focuses on the infrastructures construction activities that are aimed to realize smarter cities, but before doing so often first disturb processes and activities in public space.
Students are introduced to state-of-the-art technologies (ICT, sensors, intelligence etc.) that could help minimizing the disruption of construction processes. As such technologies are soon to be deployed in the built environment and civil engineering, they broaden the capabilities and (inter)operability of equipment and coordination processes. During the module part Introduction to Smart Cities, real-life stakeholders Smart Cities and its interface with Engineering. During the Design Project part, students work on these projects to improve existing technologies and methods for smoother city upgrading and renewal. Particular focus will be on surface level and subsurface infrastructure.
