Research oriented project II - Focus Mobility (15 CP, TU BS)
In a small group of students you work on a problem of mobility by applying your expertise in a well-founded scientific and methodological way. The result is a report, in which your group describes the research approach and analysis, reflect applied methods and discuss your findings. The results will be presented to the university, to the public or to the target group which the project had dealt with. Aims of the projects are to develop and improve your research methods skills and cope with the challenges of self-developed research.
Implementation in environmental planning (Land use & landscape) (5 CP, LUH)
The implementation of environmental objectives and rural development includes an overview of strategies and instruments. Topics are implementation in rural areas -framework condition, history of agriculture in Germany and beyond and the development of the CAP and Rural Development Policy, rural typologies, methods of classification from sectoral to territorial policy, instruments of implementation. You will be introduced to strategies of EU-policies of integrated rural development. Additionally you will learn more about modeling and visualisation to support planning and implementation.
Mobility & connectivity (5 CP, TU BS)
You will learn to thoroughly understand the determinants of mobility and its impacts on economic, social and environmental aspects. Further the lecture focus on the traffic planning process as well as the relevant instruments to process plan and to realise the transportation facilities. In this context you will become acquainted with the standard models which enable to quantify and to evaluate the impacts of planning alternatives.
Choice Modules (each 5 CP, LUH & TU BS)
Planning theory and sociology (LUH): You will learn to thoroughly understand planning processes on the basis of current planning theories. You will be introduced to approaches to balance interests and to deal with conflicts in theory and practice. You will question the role of the planner and gain insight how social acceptance may work.
Computer Science in Planning (LUH): You will be introduced to the principles and methods of computer science, environmental information systems and spatial data infrastructures, web-GIS, advanced level GIS basics, e.g. topology and modeling, and advanced level GIS methods, e.g. grid cell analyses, visibility analyses, networks, terrain models
Land Tenure and Land Policy (LUH): You acquire detailed knowledge in the fields of land management in urban and rural areas and real estate management. This includes tasks and forms of urban planning, city- and regional marketing, strategies of the inner development, basic approaches for limiting the external development, demands on space and providing space for residential construction, industrial settlements and retail, traffic and municipal infrastructure, leisure and recreation, environment and nature conservation, the use of mathematical-statistical methods in the real-estate valuation; accuracy of valuation; market data and data quality; current tasks of valuation outside the official valuation.
Rural Development and Village Renewal II (LUH, in German only): The guiding principles of development and the funding principles of the EU, the federation and the state, in particular integrated development concepts for land use and management, regional management and inventive measures will be clarified. The project-related application of the instrument for land consolidation, land use management, land readjustment and conflict resolutions will be demonstrated and discussed in different examples against the background of increasing diverse land use requirements in rural regions (land use conflicts)
