HU 164 Research Methods and Techniques
  • The course addresses effective methods of
    research. Students learn how to arrange their
    ideas and how to present them properly, with
    emphasis on scientific and technical tools.

3
Learning Outcomes
  • The main objectives of this course are to help
    students
  • To identify and define a research problem
  • To develop and write a research proposal for
    their discipline area
  • To use information systems effectively
  • To write a critical review of the relevant
    literature
  • To choose and apply an appropriate experimental
    design to a particular research problem, if
    required
  • To understand and apply a range of standard
    techniques for data acquisition

Proposed Theme Sustainable Urban Environments
  • Design urban communities that provide a high
    quality life-style that meets the needs of more
    people with a reduced carbon and ecological
    footprint.
  • Ecologically friendly and healthy urban
    environments require integration of
  • innovative multi-functional energy efficient
    buildings,
  • healthy personal and public transportation
    systems,
  • appropriate accessible green space,
  • integration of local food systems, and
  • incorporation of the natural environment into
    interior and exterior living space.
  • Sustainable urban ecosystems foster physical and
    mental well-being, individual economic
    prosperity, more efficient per capita consumption
    of water and energy, a higher return on public
    investment in municipal infrastructure and more
    opportunities for development of creative and
    ecologically responsible non-renewable materials
    cycling and natural resource utilization.

13
Proposed Theme Green Technology
  • Innovate changes in daily life through material
    production and process development that provide a
    healthy quality of life without compromising the
    ecosystem, human health.
  • Green technology includes
  • life cycle analysis,
  • source reduction,
  • resilience engineering, and
  • responsible decision making which can
    simultaneously promote economic development
    within the context of environmental stewardship.
  • Compelling issues in green technology include
  • new means of generating and evaluating energy and
  • energy efficiency,
  • environmentally friendly and
  • energy efficient building materials, chemical
    products and processes that reduce or eliminate
    use and generation of hazardous substances, and
  • green nanotechnology.
