Seminar human smart cities

Level: Master
Type of lesson: Seminar
Language(s): English
Semester(s): SA-2018

The idea of this seminar is to give students insights into actual smart city challenges. Thereby, our focus is on human-centered design of new city services and technologies (i.e., business models). At the kick-off session, various representatives from Swiss network industries (i.e., Post, SBB and Swisscom) will give an introduction into their topic(s).

Training aims

This seminar offers students the possibility to work on interesting topics in the area of human-centered smart cities; it is open for all students in the BeNeFri cooperation. Thereby, the students will be required to get a deep understanding of the topic of their choice, present their proposals at the mid-term (i.e., 20% of the grade) and final presentations (i.e., 30% of the grade) and write a final paper (i.e., 50% of the grade). The students will be split into groups of two students each group; however, individual projects are also possible. Each group (or likewise single student) will receive a clear assignment, which is feasible within the semester time.
