Aims/Description: This module introduces you to the range of modelling techniques used to analyse the urban metabolism and to assist the design of urban infrastructure. A variety of techniques will be covered to enable the spatial understanding of urban networks, the ability to quickly and efficiently test different scenarios, and to use available data to create useful information. Current state of the art technology for sensing the urban environment and informing models will also be studied.

Restrictions on availability: Only available to students on CIVT183 and CIVT104.
