The literature study prepares you for your MSc thesis. One of the reason to start with a literature study is that you quickly achieve an overview of your research topic and you will be prevented to start studying a topic or designing a device that already exists. Apart from writing a report, you will give a presentation about the overview acquired and its implications for your master thesis [BM51002].

The course content depends on the actual project and is described separately for each project on a yearly basis in Blackboard and on the website.

Integrated field course for MSc students Geo-Engineering who are in their second year and like to get hands on experience characterizing a wide range of soil and rock types, assessing their geotechnical material and mass properties using standard field tests and methods, presenting this data using GIS methods in a geotechnical baseline report, which is then used for to assess the stability of manmade/natural slopes and a tender preparation for a civil engineering project

City Portraits, Analysis and Design of City Form. Content of Q1: - Design Studio, - Workshops,- Lectures. All information is available in the Quarter Guide available on Black Board. The Quarter Guide is available one week before the start of the project. In this studio you will analyze and compare the structure, form and space of 3 different middle scale Dutch cities. You work in small groups with 1 tutor. 3-4 students will work on one city. The whole group of 10-12 students will cover the 3 cities. Each student will work individually on an atlas and the design of portraits of one of the 3 cities. In the making of the atlas and portraits you will analyze and experiment in a designerly way; thinking, sketching, modeling and drawing through different scales, functions and layers and from different perspectives. You will be supported in this by your studio tutor and with workshops in drawing, law, mapping and modeling and storyboard. You will learn of your own development during the studio and of the comparison and inspiration of the work of other students. The individual research and design assignment in this quarter is supported by lectures, debate and workshops. Input from the lectures will be tested and questioned in the debates with fellow students and results in an acceleration of the individual research and design work. The different products the students deliver (atlas, portraits, exhibition) require different working attitudes. The different forms of education activate the learning process and will lift the level of knowledge, skills and academic attitude.

This course introduces you to the work life waiting for you ahead. This is a safe environment to practice skills needed at a work place. This is a place for you to understand who you are and how you work as part of a team. This is a place for innovation, for enthusiasm. This is a place to tek the responsibility of your actions. We are just the guides. Annukka, Nora and Ari

The Department of Urbanism specialises in future-oriented action and thinking on the sustainable development of urban landscapes, responding to the needs of the society, by developing and combining theories, methods and techniques of spatial planning and design (Mission statement Department of Urbanism, 2015). The 2nd quarter of the 1st semester focusses on the human scale in urban design and engineering, and aims to contribute to a sustainable development and transformation of the urban environment. In the first quarter a city has been analysed from four different themes: (1) typo-morphology, (2) urban landscape, (3) open space and (4) the city as a complex system. In the second quarter insights regarding those themes will de deepened, with a focus on the human scale in urban design and engineering. The overall goal is to improve the performance of the urban environment by developing a vision, project, strategy and evaluation framework. This quarter is organised around three dimensions of sustainable development. By proposing changes in the urban fabric, the aim is to improve the (1) social, (2) environmental and (3) economic dimensions of urban environments. The assignment in this quarter focusses on integrating social and environmental dimensions, while the economic dimension is included in evaluating the proposal. It emphasises the human scale: focusing on the street and neighbourhood scale, in the context of the city as a whole. This quarter emphasizes (1) a comprehensive understanding of sustainable development consisting of social, environmental and economic dimensions; (2) the ability to integrate design and engineering, while taking the socio-economic feasibility into account; (3) skills in communication, representation, and observation. During the R&D studio Designing Urban Environments students use this knowledge and skills to develop an urban design proposal.

This course is Management and Finance 2 (10 credits). This course consists of four parts: management, economics, law and computational design. The management part in provides a general framework for management. This framework overarches more specific management approaches that can be discerned, such as strategic management or project management. Management reflects on concepts and notions that are key to the field of management. The economy part in relates Urban and Regional Economics. Basic urban economic theory is discussed and linked to practical application in real estate market analysis at the property and area level. The law part covers the basic elements that are of relevance for any building project and urban development plan. The fields that are taught are: Contract law, Building contract law, Procurement law, Legal entities, Planning and Development law, Environmental law and Public private partnerships. It includes private law and public law, from the building level to the level of urban development. The computational design part of the course provides an overview of current and emerging digital means and computational approaches to design and management in architecture and building, as well as insights into their application and future development. It consists of four interrelated activities: - Literature review, - Case study, where students analyse the application of digital means within a specific practice - Overview, where students devise a roadmap for the effective and efficient digital design and information management in the life cycle of the built environment, with particular attention to management issues such as integration and continuity - Focus, where students attempt a concrete implementation of their overview for specific issues, problems or aspects.

The unit of course aims to train students to grasp an integral approach when managing urban (re)development both at the urban area scale and at the portfolio and object scale. Through a role-playing simulation project, students will be given design assignments that drive them to (re)develop a complex urban location with both residential and non-residential elements. The assignment aims at drawing up a development plan for the location. The students, through this exercise, will play the roles of local authorities and private actors as well as third parties of the area and negotiate in their respect roles to reach an optimal solution. Students will conduct feasibility analysis of a particular real estate objective at the portfolio and object scale. This unit will equip students with sufficient skills to deal with the assignment in the simulation with a series of lectures and sessions of fieldwork, role assistance and group supervision. Students will learn about the context, goal, actors and means of realisation related to each phase of the urban area development cycle. In this process, students have to consider how to make a balance between market demand, spatial quality requirement with available means.

In Re-design students examine a particular case from various points of view and at different levels of abstraction organised in a sequence of three phases: - Analysis: information gathering and processing so as to present a comprehensive, coherent and consistent picture of the case and its problems - Precedent analysis: analyse and evaluate a specific aspect of a project (process and products) with respect to effectiveness, efficiency, consistency, comprehensiveness and reliability. - Project definition and plan development: formulation of the aims, performance demands and possible strategies of the actors for the development process and products on the basis of analysis results. Plan development of effective and efficient processes that comply with the project definition.
