Course description
  URBAN PLANNING AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2018-19

Contemporary society is characterized by increasingly urbanized spaces, forms and new challenges that require, first, a knowledge and understanding of the processes and forces that shape these spaces and, second, to provide students tools to intervention in them.
However, compared to the traditional sectorial or non-holistic approach of engineering, a new concept much more open and linked to other dimensions that constitute this new contemporary spatial reality is proposed.

Specific objectives stated by the academic staff for academic year 2018-19

- Understanding the spatial aspect of projects and civil engineering works in the city and the territory, removing its sectorial autonomy.
- Understanding the city and territory as complex elements, providing theoretical and interpretive content on spatial change processes and agents and underlying causes.
- Deploy skills in relation to the proposed development from the consideration of its constituent elements, to the participation of the same in the configuration of urban space.
- Relate the urban infrastructures and services with planning instruments.
