Typical elements of a research project

This is a presentation on basic elements of a research project at the Urbanism Master programme of the TU Delft.

Connecting Questions and answers

This is a presentation on general issues of methodology in the human sciences applied to an education in Urbanism. Our position is that in order to design and plan our cities and regions, students and professionals must underpin their assumptions with solid research. There are basic criteria for any academic endeavour and a set of basic elements in any research project.  This presentation discusses these issues and suggests ways to go about the initial literature research. (this presentation is directed to TU Delft Urbanism students).

Two lectures on the ETHICAL DIMENSION of Urbanism


Lectures given by Professor Peter Kroes and Dr. Stefan Kroller of TBM (Faculty of Technology Policy and Management of the TU Delft) for the Urbanism Methodology course. This is an  introduction to ethics and engineering which enquiries into the moral dimensions of planning and design and discusses issues like the “just city” and procedural justice.
