How can technology make a smart contribution to the (future) challenges of certain cities, in the Netherlands and internationally?
In this programme, we will consider significant developments in cities and the challenges we face in keeping cities liveable and attractive. The aim is to provide insight into the significant challenges faced by selected cities, using geo-information and data.
As part of the programme, you will work on several individual assignments and an interdisciplinary project with fellow students. For the project, you and your colleagues will work on a real-life urban challenge in a selected city.
The course will cover the following topics:
- World urbanization
- 3D geo information/Digital Twins
- Citizen participation
- Virtual Reality
- Creating Dashboards
- Sensor technology
In addition, Smart Cities offers one or more field trips abroad to observe and experience the topics in the real world.
During the programme, you are also free to select a combination of elective courses, such as:
- Remote Sensing (satellite image interpretation)
- Spatial Decision Modelling
- LIDAR (point clouds)
- Serious Gaming
The cost of approximately €400 is for one or more field trips.
