CE-GY 7815 Urban Systems Seminar

1.5 Credits
This is a Ph.D. level course introducing students to critical thinking for the study of cities. Topics used include but not limited to climate and climate action, design of human centric cities, and approaches for the engagement of urban communities in policy design and decision making. Typical urban characteristics such as density, pollution, and energy use are juxtaposed with aspirational characteristics such as parks and walking quarters, in order to critique success stories and failures in modern urban experience. Students use case studies with special attention to the interactions of scientific progress, governance, and finance. The course is designed to prepare the student to engage with their disciplinary dissertation while having a cross disciplinary perspective.

Prerequisite(s): Reserved for Ph.D. students in Urban Systems.
