Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course will last for 18 weeks during which students will be fully immersed in the laboratory work. Every two weeks a particular aspect of the city metabolism will be studied, including presentations of state-of-the art technology and its impact on city infrastructure. Subsequently, every student will develop a technological project covering one of the city layers (information, water, energy, recycled resources, mobility or environment) and reflecting on how information systems can help develop new formats of urban functioning. Every two weeks students will present the progress of their technological project.
Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives

  • This course involves students’ immersion in the laboratory work. The key objective of the course is to provide students with deep knowledge of technical, economic and social aspects of the city infrastructure and its functioning. These include information, water, energy, recycled resources, food, mobility and environment and their integration in the process of city development.
  • The course will provide a general introduction to each system to form a holistic approach to urban projects. The course will teach students how to treat resources in their projects and in the management of the city.
