Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will be acquainted with the principles of urban planning and spatial planning and public infrastructure with a focus on transport and technical infrastructure, public spaces with an emphasis on general and technical requirements. After completing the course, students will be able to understand the basic terminology, will understand the basic tools of spatial planning, will gain knowledge in the field of design and coordination of transport and technical equipment of the territory and will know the basic principles of public space design.

Teaching methods

Project work


The course deals with the basic principles of the practical functioning of cities. These are primarily the basic tools of spatial planning as the most important sources of information on the current state and the near future of all urbanized areas, and are followed by rules for the overall coordination of buildings in the public space, including transport and technical infrastructure with an integral part of the requirements in terms of barrier-free use of public open space. Illustrative examples of elements and activities used for the functioning of the city with the help of modern technologies - the so-called SmartCities - are also used in teaching.
