Project Courses Introduction
Groups of planning students work on projects, often connected with clients from the public or private sectors. Projects vary from year to year but all require a rigorous application of skills of problem and goal definition, generation of solutions, evaluation of alternative means of achieving goals, and presentation of results. An emphasis on processes of group work, communication skills, and project organization supplements the substantive, issue-oriented work particular to a given project. Every student must complete the project course. The class project provides a student with the unique experience of a team-approach to handle a project with real clients, who would often provide significant funding to cover expenses. These projects serve as a “synthesis” of the theories and skills learned. All the projects have involved real and active clients who funded the projects and used the results. The following provides information on previous projects and clients.
