Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main objective of the course is to provide students with basic knowledge in solving the problems of land restoration with a focus on brownfields. This knowledge has recently emerged as one of the key elements in assessing and planning future urban development.

Teaching methods



Students are comprehensively introduced to the issue of abandoned and underused areas leading to the regeneration of the territory. Within the course they will gain information about the facts that lead to the creation of brownfields, about the problems that these areas cause in settlements and about the possibilities of revitalization of areas, including sources of financing and the necessary analyses that precede the regeneration itself. The training also includes information on how contamination is generated and how to remove it. All this is complemented by a discussion of the issues of passporting with links to 3D scanning.
