The infrastructure planning deals with the impact analysis of civil works (investigation/survey, forecasting and evaluations), procedural analysis (consensus building) and infrastructure management for the purpose of making a better society through the infrastructure construction and their management. This course teaches the fundamentals of infrastructure planning, particularly about the mathematical and social foundations of planning.
To understand the foundations of:
- Mathematical oriented planning theory about planning process, survey, forecasting and evaluation,
- Social oriented planning theory considering that the infrastructure planning deals with human being and their society.
Infrastructure planning, optimization, systems analysis, social theory
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
While teaching theoretical foundations of infrastructure planning, small quiz will also be conducted. Further, the final exam will also be carried out.
