Core modules: appropriate technologies in practice; collaborative project international development; engineering and international development; resilience. Options: environmental GIS; environmental modelling; environmental systems engineering; GIS principles and technology; mapping science; natural and environmental disasters; urban flooding and drainage; water and wastewater treatment; critical urbanism studio i - learning from informality (case studies and alternatives); critical urbanism studio ii - learning from informality (investigative design strategies for contested spaces); disaster risk reduction in cities; gender in policy and planning; post disaster recovery (policies, practices and alternatives); sustainable infrastructure and services in development; urban water and sanitation, planning and politics.
This programme will be delivered by a selection of taught modules, collaborative project with overseas clients and practical activities, including a site visit to the Centre for Alternative Technologies in Wales. While most of the field trip costs are met by the department, students are required to pay 300 pounds towards the trip which contributes to accommodation and food. Assessment will range from group project presentations, coursework, and examinations to essays and a compulsory dissertation over the last term.
