### Course description and aims

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.

### Student learning outcomes

To understand the foundations of:
- Mathematical oriented planning theory about planning process, survey, forecasting and evaluation,
and
- Social oriented planning theory considering that the infrastructure planning deals with human being and their society.

### Keywords

Infrastructure planning, optimization, systems analysis, social theory

### Competencies that will be developed

 ✔ Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills ✔ Critical thinking skills ✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills

### Class flow

While teaching theoretical foundations of infrastructure planning, small quiz will also be conducted. Further, the final exam will also be carried out.
