This module is designed to enable graduates to prepare and write scientific research, and the preparation of reports and proposals. Graduates will be able to identify stages of scientific research such as problem identification, identifying objectives, data collection, data analysis and hypothesis testing and verification of the objectives and the like. It also aims to familiarize students with different research approaches both quantitative and qualitative, in addition to the methods of data collection and preparation of questionnaires.
This module looks at strategies that cities should employ to capitalize on the potential of waterfronts and the methods of translating strategies into reality via planning, design, construction and management techniques based on best practice and shared experiences to enhance the quality of life and improve their urban conditions. The module will review a range of international waterfront cities (regenerated waterfronts, new-building schemes) to demonstrate the benefits of integrating leisure, retail, residential and commercial components into thriving mixed-use waterfront developments and demonstrate the considerable social, cultural and economic benefits of such integration. It will touch upon the positioning of waterfronts in a comparative global market, public private partnerships, civic leadership for gaining political support for development and urban design issues for creating "livable cities" via a spatial development stagey.
This module offers students an opportunity to work with design projects that build up on each other and focus specifically on one scale and topic – they have a reduced complexity by linking design project to specific sites and stakeholder constellations. Projects will introduce the following scales: Sustainable design projects in building scale; sustainable design projects in city scale; Sustainable design projects in regional scale.
