This Tracks course uses problem-based and challenge-driven approaches to address urban challenges. Following a set of introductory lectures, students with different backgrounds work in groups to study and solve urban challenges. The group project provides an interdisciplinary platform for an exchange of knowledge and experience in disciplines relevant to the design of infrastructure in contemporary cities. Previous years, projects have focused on mobility, climate adaptation, information and indoor spaces.
The Chalmers campus – A playground for innovation
The course uses the Chalmers Johanneberg campus as a case study site for the group project. The campus will grow in coming decades with additional study and work spaces, as well as student housing. The development of the campus is an opportunity to link education and urban development together with stakeholders. The course is also an opportunity to engage students in the development of the campus. Students will work with challenges provided by the stakeholders on projects dealing with the infrastructure and the systems on the campus, with the aim of improving sustainability and wellbeing for students and staff.
All Master’s Programme students at Chalmers interested in broaden their knowledge in relation to sustainable urban development.
