4. At the end of the module’s first block and at the end of the module, students can argue how each of the different themes support the construction of Smart urban life.
5. At the end of the module, students can apply the 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 the different themes to a sustainable city design project.
7. At the end of the module, students are able to present and justify their sustainable 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).
9. At the end of the module’s design project, students are able to reflect on their own sustainability during the research project, and on the sustainability of their research product.
This is a part of the Minor, Smart Solutions for Sustainable Cities . 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 sustainable cities. While exploring this theme, this module focuses on smart solutions for the infrastructures construction activities that are aimed to realize sustainable 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 part, students work on the projects to improve existing technologies and methods for smoother city upgrading and renewal. Particular focus will be on responsible futuring and feasible solutions.
