KurzbeschreibungThe course Basics of RE&IS provides essential basic knowledge for the Master's degree program in Spatial Development & Infrastructure Systems and is divided into the three main topics of technical-scientific working, writing & presenting. The students deepen and apply the learned knowledge in the context of three performance elements and one ungraded semester performance.
Lernziel- Students will be able to identify, name, and be able to define the content taught.
- The students can assess, discuss and explain the necessity, significance and application of the standards in scientific work.
- Students will be able to apply the content, implement it in different examples and use it to solve the exercises and the semester assignment.
- With the techniques learned in the course, students will be able to analyze and differentiate scientific sources and apply them in their work in a structured way.
- The knowledge learned will help students to be able to assess, decide, evaluate and critically evaluate in the context of the semester assignment.
-Students are able to systematically compare and present their results in an argumentative manner.
-Students are able to produce their results in collaboration with their group and are able to develop, formulate and design a scientific and technical report to complete the assignment.
-The students are able to present their results in an engaging presentation together with their project group and use attractive and formally correct visualizations, maps or diagrams for this purpose.
-The students thus develop a common understanding with regard to their methodological knowledge and can henceforth work scientifically at an appropriate level.
InhaltStudents will learn the basics of scientific work and practice their skills within the framework of three performance elements as well as an ungraded semester work, which will be worked out in groups of two to three students.

In the first half of the semester, students will learn the theoretical basics and apply and understand these in the context of the exercises (=performance elements) in groups of maximum of two. The final ungraded semester exercise in the second part of the course, students will work in groups of maximum two on an assignment, which they will document and communicate in the form of a written report and a final presentation at the end of the course.

Students will be supervised by at least three assistants and one professor throughout the course. The main course lead changes periodically between the following RE&IS chairs: Infrastructure Management (IM), Transportation Systems (TS), Traffic Engineering (SVT), Transport Planning (VPL), Spatial Development and Urban Policy (SPUR), Planning of Landscape and Urban Systems (PLUS) and Spatial Transformation Laboratories (STL).
