“Smart City” is on everyone’s lips. Under real circumstances, the term describes one thing in particular: the acquisition of a large number of real-time data of the environment by sensors and their availability for IoT solutions. However, this combination alone is not so “intelligent” that it leads to the solution of urgent urban challenges.
Rather, digital models of buildings, streets and entire city quarters are indispensable in order to use captured data sensibly for analysis and forecasting. Results are visualized in the models and offer intuitive support for decisions to improve mobility flows, the development of new construction sites or the implementation of safety concepts.
In its unique cross-thematic and cross-faculty approach, this certificate program combines the areas of Digital Building (BIM) and Digital City Modeling (CityGML) with innovative analysis and simulation methods for the design of “smart” urban spaces with quality of life.
Aim of this course
This interdisciplinary certificate program combines established solutions from various disciplines (BIM, GIS, simulation) to interactive digital city models as a basis for decisions for sustainable growth, planning security concepts and improving the quality of life.
- Introduction to innovative methods from the fields of urban planning, architecture, geoinformation and engineering technology.
- Evaluation of possibilities of digital networking and emerging new business models
- Getting to know digital analysis methods that span a wide range of topics and scales
- Development of individual solution strategies for complex urban issues
