UE2.S5 StatisticsL3PolytechToursEngineering degree in Urban and territorial planning and environmentEnglishStudy of fundamental computer concepts: computer architecture, coding, Boolean algebra, operating systems, networks. Development and analysis of problem-solving algorithms (Python): sorting and complexity, distance calculation (Euclidean, spherical), Dijkstra, etc. Links will be established with geomatics and statistics for more integrated teaching. 31
UE3-S5water policies & uses (flood intervention)L3PolytechToursEngineering degree in Urban and territorial planning and environmentEnglishInformation: Concerns only the part of the courses run by Mathilde Gralepois (Flood prevention). The objective of this unit is to explain the history of flood prevention, territorial strategies and the evolution of options between defence infrastructures and nature-based solutions. The course studies the construction of public policies, the stakeholders and the tools implemented. The course explains the transition from public action based on hazard control to current crisis management positions. 1.51
UE3-UIT-S7Territorial planning and developement stratégiesM1PolytechToursEngineering degree in Urban and territorial planning and environmentEnglishThe aim of this course is to enable students to understand the main concepts involved in territorial development strategies, particularly in relation to innovation and sustainability issues. In class, students will explore these strategies and dynamics through case studies carried out by groups of 3-4 students. 21
UE1 - S7General hydrologyM1PolytechToursEngineering degree in Urban and territorial planning and environmentEnglishThis course will cover the notions of the water cycle, water balance, watersheds, hydrographic networks, hydrological processes and hydrological regimes. The principle of the course is original: each student will be invited to discover the important basics of the course through personal work at home and in class, using online course material and quizzes to integrate each of the notions covered. tutorials discussions and exercises/projects will enable students to apply these basics through active learning. 31
UE 4-UIT.S7ecodesign workshop (specialisation RESEAU)M1PolytechToursEngineering degree in Urban and territorial planning and environmentEnglishThe course consists of producing a project based on a commission that students must continually reformulate in order to make its modeling possible (this modeling makes it possible to dimension the project's solutions and various urban devices). The exercise applies to the design of a sustainable neighbourhood and the production of a working scale model or digital mock-up (VR) that meets the workshop specifications. 41
UE3.S9research methodology and innovation M1PolytechToursEngineering degree in Urban and territorial planning and environmentEnglishThe objectives are as follows: Formulate a research question and choose a case study, a type of data and methodological tools to answer it ; Carry out data collection and analysis, adjusting initial objectives as necessary to suit the field situation ; Report on research in an intelligible and organized manner, both orally and in writing. 41
IMAGE S9 Urban and anthropized rivers in Europe and the world M2PolytechToursEngineering degree in Urban and territorial planning and environmentEnglishThis course will cover the following topics: Adaptation measures and E&S (environmental and social) risks associated with urban/anthropized rivers - international issues and approaches (Europe and outside Europe). The course includes theory and analysis of existing urban restoration/conservation projects. The aim is to: Understand the environmental and social issues surrounding watercourses and wetlands in urban and highly anthropized environments, particularly in the context of climate change ; Acquire knowledge of environmentally-friendly adaptation and mitigation approaches and techniques in civil engineering and urban planning ; Analyze specific international case studies. Where appropriate, introduction to E&S impact studies 31
Supervised projects in engineering Supervised projects in engineering : Urban and Territorial Planning and Environment M2PolytechToursEngineering degree in Urban and territorial planning and environmentEnglish/frenchThe ‘‘Research apprenticeship exchange program’’ is a course unit dedicated to international exchange students coming to Tours to study engineering sciences. This individualized program enables students to carry out projects within a research laboratory of the Graduate School of Engineering ‘Polytech Tours’. It consists of a project performed in a laboratory under the supervision of a lecturer, assistant professor or professor. The students will be evaluated by means of an oral presentation, a written report and a theory test. The students can complete their study program with French courses for foreign students and with field courses taught in French or English. 151
