Information about course projects
The course projects are intended to let you look in depth at some area
of planning that may not be covered in class, or may only be covered
briefly. We encourage you to do some original research in a planning
area that is of interest to you, although in-depth surveys of a topic
also make fine projects. Below are some example project titles and
sample final reports from previous years.
- September 30th: initial proposals due.
- October 7th: Feedback to students on initial proposals, and
suggested revisions if necessary.
- October 14th: Final proposals due.
- November 25th and Dec 2nd: Project presentations in class.
- December 12th: Final project report due (not the 5th as
Course project titles from previous classes
In some cases there are sample final projects to give you an idea of
the scope and size of a project.
