Seminar Human Smart Cities

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).
 

Learning Outcomes: 

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.
