Sustainable Planning aims to:

- Analyze planning and programming tools and distinguish the different themes present in urban realities

- develop greater sensitivity towards the territorial discipline

- propose and compare choices of social and economic redevelopment and revitalization of the territory

- evaluate sustainability in all its dimensions.

 

The course will lead the student to:

- present and integrate the fundamental planning issues in the civil-construction-environmental field, useful for the engineering activity;

- develop key-topics (through works on case studies) stimulating a greater awareness of the various critical issues and solutions.

 

The course intends to enhance the acquisition of soft skills: personal and social knowledge, ability to learn to learn, competence in creation.

PREREQUISITES

As a master's course in the civil-construction-environmental sphere, the student must have acquired, during the Bachelor course, the following knowledge necessary to tackle the topics of the course:

- techniques and methods of the study of the territory

- basic engineering notions.

TEACHING METHODS

The 40-hour teaching consists of lectures, followed by guided thematic works, required by single student or by small groups of students.

These latter activities enhance the acquisition of soft skills: personal and social knowledge, ability to learn to learn, competence in creation.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam is constituted by an oral test.

Basically, it consists of two parts:

- the first: the exposition of the topics illustrated during the lessons

- the second: the presentation and subsequent discussion of the results acquired on a chosen topic, that is considered as an integral part of the oral test.

There will be 3 exam sessions for the winter session (mid-January-February-March) and 3 exam sessions for the summer session (June, July and September).

 

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The assessment will be carried out through an oral test, in which the overall subject knowledge and the group work carried out during the course will be evaluated.

The oral exam will mainly focus on the topics dealt with in the lectures and will have the purpose of evaluating not only if the student has reached an adequate level of knowledge, but if he has acquired the ability to critically analyze territorial problems.
