Organizer：Taiwan Tech Sponsor：CDIO工程教育新南向人才培育聯盟暨跨領域工程教育規劃推動計畫 Course location：Taipei, Taiwan Teaching language：English Dates：August 12 - 21, 2019 Target group：Senior undergraduate students, especially in the fields of engineering Description of Content： A sustainable city is a city designed with consideration for social, economic, environmental impact, and resilient habitat for existing populations, without compromising the ability of future generations to experience the same. These cities are inhabited by people who are dedicated towards minimization of required inputs of energy, water, food, waste, an output of heat, air pollution - CO2, methane, and water pollution. Therefore, how to use the smart technology that has been developed in these decades to approach the purpose of a sustainable city becomes an important issue. Additionally, the smart technology applied to the sustainable city must be improved and accomplished based on multidisciplinary integration. Our summer school provides multidisciplinary courses related to practical smart technologies which have been applied in the development of sustainable cities. Courses will cover several fields, i.e., Material, Environment, Disaster Prevention, Industry 4.0, Building Technology, and Management, and will offer an overview of the relationship between Smart Technologies and Sustainable Cities. In addition to lectures and projects based on PBL (Problem-based learning), our program will include field trips and cultural tours in Taiwan to make the summer school an enriching experience for all participants.
