Project Seminar Designing Smart Cities
Since 2013, every winter semester, the master project "Designing Smart Cities - Creative Strategies for Urban Challenges" takes place at TU Berlin.
The challenge of each project is developed in collaboration with a real project partner, the Department of Urban Renewal and Sustainable Development (Prof. Elke Pahl-Weber) and the Department of Strategic Leadership and Global Management (Prof Dr. Dodo zu Knyphausen-Aufseß). Together we design, shape and supervise project seminar.
Master's students from various fields, such as economics, urban planning, architecture and engineering work together in small teams in this interdisciplinary project. They intensively investigate user-related needs and generate innovative solutions for the problem of the project partner.
The aim is to develop conceptional prototypes, graphic visualizations of the solution and corresponding implementation concepts in order to communicate the potential of the solutions in a credible way and adapt them to the requirements of specific locations.
The course is taught in English.
