Future Cities

The future is challenging the way we build our cities. In this module you will work in interdisciplinary teams on a integral design research for a city district in 2050. You research and design future solutions that enhance the quality of life, cut cities' carbon emissions and build resilience to extreme weather. You research critical infrastructure services like mobility, energy, food, water and waste and their impact on urban structure and public space. 

Water Management

Global issues regarding water availability and flooding require engineers with a firm ground in water related topics. Water management is on the cutting edge of large scale, global processes like climate change and drought and local processes like soil water and river flows.

You will study the (local) aspects of geo-hydrology and you will develop a computational model for a quantitative analysis. You will work on an international water management project.

Guest speakers

Guest speakers from the industry of smart mobility, alternative
energy, waste flows, water management, smart cities, etcetera will
share their knowledge and experience to support you in your project
work. You will visit and investigate interesting projects on field trips
in the Netherlands and abroad. 

Entry requirements

Two years of Bachelor's studies in civil or environmental engineering or similar. English at B2 level (IELTS 6.0).
