Every year, BEST Porto organizes an Academical Course on Technology, open to all European students in universities members of the network. We will select 22 applicants and give them the opportunity to receive an advanced academical and extracurricular education. They will share ideas with students coming from different countries and learn everything about Portuguese culture and Porto.
This year our Summer Course will focus on Urban Planning by analyzing the geographical environment and metabolic impact on the city’s development.
Do you know how your city is actually developing?
How does a city use their natural resources to grow?
In twelve days, you will have the chance to answer these questions and learn how your city is growing right before your eyes, through enthusiastic lectures, workshops and a case study to put in practice what you have learnt.
At the end of this course, you will be able to analyze the impact of land use, identify transportation patterns and recognize food, water and energy supply.
