This is a part of Minor, Smart Ways To Make Smart Cities Smarter. See
here for the complete description of this module.

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 Design Project, student will work at a real-life issue aimed at improving existing technologies and methods for smoother city upgrading and renewal. Particular focus will be on surface level and subsurface infrastructure.
Assumed previous knowledge
All engineering/math/science-profile students are suited. Other students should have interest in technology and be willing to learn about scientific/physics/engineering basic principles.
