Module 1

Module 1: Basics of Smart Solutions

Students learn about demographic and climatic changes. They learn how urban change can have an impact and how resource and energy consumption can be reduced.
The students recognize the connection between demographic developments and the developments of certain cities and regions.
They will also learn the parameters of the Smart-City approach and analyse specific situations and locations. Best practice examples are used to illustrate the objectives and approaches to solutions.



Learning Unit 1.1 Global Climatic & Demographic Developments/ challenges

It is taught which are the main drivers of urban change. Climate change, demographic change and social paradigm change in different regions of the world will be discussed.
Students understand the factors that contribute to climate change and the impact of climate change. Students learn about solutions for achieving global climate goals. They will be able to develop scenarios and measures for global climate change.
In addition, students are taught the dynamics of population growth and the associated consequences.

Learning Unit 1.2 Sustainable Macroeconomics

Intelligent solutions for urban development are closely linked to the economic framework conditions of states, regions and cities. Realizing opportunities for intelligent change requires a fundamental understanding of the macro- and microeconomic environment and its key factors.
Students learn to understand the mechanisms of the regional and supra-regional economy and the interactions between the private and public economy. Students are taught how to implement smart city projects financially as well as risk and stakeholder management.

Learning Unit 1.3 Societal Developments / challenges

Besides knowledge of demographic and climatic changes, it is equally important to know and understand social challenges and developments.
Students learn more about global social hurdles and current trends. You will be trained in future and trend research in order to meet the challenges of tomorrow and to be able to make correct forecasts for the future.

Learning Unit 1.4 Smart City Parameters & Measures

Students and prospective practitioners must be informed about existing and planned "best practice" examples worldwide and research results in this area. Through the systematic collection of current information, the Smart City database is constantly updated and can also be made accessible to professionals.
The students have the ability to be autonomously and constantly informed about the rapidly growing knowledge and experience of Smart City and to generate their own contributions to further develop the Smart City approach.
