These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

evaluate the theories and principles underpinning the smart cities concept

demonstrate the ability to critically analyse the complex tradeoffs inherent in the application of smart city principles and theories.

critically analyse the Smart and Liveable Cities concept using exemplar case studies
