There are economic and social issues and at the same time cities face challenges in the field of construction, sustainability and energy transition. In this module, you will deliver a prototype of a solution for a real life urban challenge. These challenges are selected from contemporary ongoing projects in which the university is engaged.
This module is scheduled at the same time as Dutch Society. They can therefore not be taken simultaneously.
