The Urban Regeneration and Development programme offered by Dublin Institute Of Technology equips students with the knowledge and tools to tackle issues of urban decline in an effective and innovative manner. It will appeal to built environment practitioners and others who wish to broaden their skills in understanding and managing the processes and products of urban regeneration and development.
The programme is designed to be multi-disciplinary and highly engaged with industry and civic society, encouraging best practice and reflectiveness, and to facilitate new research and innovation in urban regeneration. Sustainability is at the core of the programme, and shows how urban regeneration can benefit both the local and wider economy, environment and society.
Assessment is by examination and coursework, however a large portion of the programme is assessed by practical project-work, undertaken both individually and in teams. Because students are normally practising professionals from different disciplines, the course provides scope for a considerable degree of inter-disciplinary learning. Evaluation of experience, both within the student group as well as between lecturers and students, is encouraged within the programme.
