Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Infrastructures such as road, railway, port, airport, water supply and sewage system and city park are necessary and essential for living activity or production activity. Since the construction of such facility requires huge investment and long time, a planning scheme for infrastructure supply should be made up with considering related economic and social factors with future forecasting. In this class, preliminary planning, survey, analysis, forecasting and evaluation for infrastructure supply are lectured with some case studies.
