Courses

      • PLAN 6346-001 ADVANCED DATA ANALYSIS IN URBAN AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS

        The objective of the course is to discuss applied statistics, particularly regression analysis and logit models, and apply these models to examples of social science and urban and regional analysis. The aim is to understand the techniques better through their use, to evaluate critically their use by others, and to learn to appreciate the subtle interplay of "scientific" methods and personal judgment in research and analysis. We will learn to make sense out of data through statistical analysis and to put the da ta in a format that people can understand. We will emphasize understanding why one method is used over another in different circumstances and the interpretation of the results from the computer. It is my expectation that the student will learn what method to use as well as why it is used, to interpret the inferential statistics and to “tell the story” of the dependent and independent variables.

        We begin with introduction to research design, which includes an assignment whereby students prepare a research proposal, hopefully toward student’s dissertation, in which regression and/or logit analysis will be used. Students’ progress will be discussed every session till the due date of the research proposal. A brief review of statistics as a refresher will begin the statistics part of the course before moving on to linear regression. A multitude of topics under linear regression will be covered in depth, the purpose of which is to expose the student to many of the pitfalls one may encounter in conducting research and to become versed in regression applications and interpretation of results. It should also be noted that a brief review of important related statistical concepts will be discussed when the need arises. After a thorough treatment of bivariate and multivariate regression models we pay special attention to the case of the limited dependent variable. We often try to explain a phenomenon with only information on whether or not an event occurred or whether one of several possible events occurred. We will examine logit (and probit) models as methods to use in such occasions.

        Since not everything is explainable by a single equation and that in some research the dependent variable may also play the part of an independent variable, multiple equation systems are often necessary. We will finally briefly explore Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) and multiple equation systems that include both two-stage least squares and path analysis. These models explore multivariate relationships in an integrated manner.

      • PLAN 5309-001 TRANSPORTATION/LAND USE MODELING AND POLICY ANALYSIS

        This course aims to provide an introduction to the metropolitan level integrated land use/transportation planning process. Transportation and land use development is essential in meeting economic, social, and environmental goals, which profoundly affect sustainability issues.

        We will concern ourselves with the techniques and research in integrated land use and transportation forecasting procedures currently used in the U.S. Metropolitan Planning Organizations [MPOs]/Council of Governments [COGs] including the four-step transportation modeling process. The course is also offering a brief introduction to TELUM/TELUS land use demographic forecasting and other transportation planning software. Issues stemming from the problems of forecasting households and employment in different categories, as well as the ways in which changes in land use and transportation network interact and affect the environment are the topics that will be discussed in the course.

      • PLAN 5310-001 Planning, Urban Development and Structure

        This course provides an introduction to the substantive or functional areas of planning (e.g., housing, transportation, urban design, community development, etc.) and basic knowledge in urban development and urban structure. It offers an overview of social, political, and economic factors that shape the development of cities and metropolitan regions and a brief overview of fundamentals and general information that one needs to build upon in order to get involved in planning and related activities.

        In order to understand an area of inquiry in both basic areas and in relation to the substantive or functional planning areas, some knowledge and understanding of basic issues, background and history of their developments is essential for any planning and policy endeavor. Similarly, related important empirical research and theoretical works on the nature and origins of cities and their developments are needed. Such information and knowledge, however, may not necessarily be exclusive to planners or even directly be related to planning.

        Historically, the planning profession has been a response to a myriad of problems stemming from urbanization processes. This course builds the background necessary for understanding how cities grow and change and how diverse American planning concerns relate to managing the process of urban growth (or decline in some instances).

        Planning functional areas typically deal with: comprehensive planning, (e.g., land-use patterns), transportation planning, urban design, the provision of affordable housing, environmental planning, sustainability, community and economic development, and quality of life, etc.

      • PLAN 6311-001 URBAN FORM: SPATIAL THEORY AND POLICY

        This course examines different aspects of shaping urban form and the extent to which it relates to issues of policy and planning. This course is not intended to be a history of urban form nor a review of planning theory, but rather a look at both urban form and function. Therefore, first, the course will set out a conceptual framework for understanding the importance of urban form and structure and the role that it plays in shaping urban areas.

        It then provides an overview of critical topics and theories of urban spatial form and structure including location theory, urban growth, density and land price, and land use and spatial pattern. Additionally, it discusses multi-centering and sprawl, as well as New-Urbanism (NTD & TOD) among others. The complex relationships between transportation, land use and urban form as well as environmental aspects of urban development in relation to the dynamic growth/decline of the metropolitan regions will also be examined.

        Finally, a discussion on the implications of all of these issues for urban planning and public policy will conclude the course.

      • CIRP 5340-001 ENVIRONMENTAL/LAND-USE SUITABILITY ANALYSIS USING GIS

        This course aims to introduce students to environmental and land-use suitability analysis which is one of the main techniques used in land-use/environmental planning processes.  The suitability analysis is an important technique that brings together environmental factors along with social and economic factors with an aim at reducing negative effects of growth/urban sprawl and help in planning for sustainable development.  Different methods related to this analysis and their theoretical underpinning will be discussed and examples of their applications will be reviewed to help students understand theoretical issues and practical problems of these techniques.

        In conjunction with the course discussions, within the time frame of the course, a practical exercise of applying the land suitability analysis to an actual area will also be undertaken to provide a hands on experience for students.  This also will help students to familiarize themselves with problems related to data gathering, encoding, data manipulation, and some of the problems related to graphical display of data and results, and more importantly to visualization and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), which is becoming standard for the industry. There is no prerequisite for the course, therefore, a brief introduction to ArcGIS will also be offered in the course. This introduction by no means would make one expert in GIS; students interested in proficiency in GIS should take the GIS courses offered at CAPPA including Introduction to GIS.

        The major goals of the course are:  to provide information on land suitability and land use analysis along with a set of techniques which can be used for environmental/land-use planning analysis in practice and research.  The applications of the methods will constitute the assignment part of the course.

      • CIRP 5309-001 METROPOLITAN INTEGRATED LAND USE/TRANSPORTATION MODELING AND POLICY ANALYSIS

        This course aims to provide an introduction to the metropolitan level integrated land use/transportation planning process.  We will concern ourselves with the available techniques and current research in land use and travel forecasting procedures for metropolitan regions.  The course is organized around the process of integrated land use/ travel demand forecasting which includes consideration of environmental factors and the development forces that are the basis for planning land use and transportation in the metropolitan/regional level for 20-30 years planning period. Issues stemming from the problems of forecasting households and employment in different categories, allocating them to the developed and undeveloped zones of the study area and forecasting the resulted passenger travel demand for the complex transportation network in metropolitan areas as well as the ways in which changes in land use and transportation network interact and affect the environment are the topics that will be discussed in the course.

      • CIRP 5310-001 Introduction to urban structure and planning

        This course provides an introduction to the basic knowledge area, urban structure and the substantive areas of planning.  The objective of the course is to provide an introduction to the substantive areas of planning and a brief overview of fundamentals and general information that one needs to build upon in order to become a professional planner.  The social, political and economic principles and problems and understanding of spatial structure in urban and regional settings are part of this overview. They will be studied and related to urban and regional policy from a planning perspective.  They are also very useful in understanding cities and different aspects of urban areas such as housing, transportation, etc.  In the urban structure part of the course, the instructor, in his presentations, will attempt to focus more on spatial aspects and will emphasize the factors affecting the structure of urban areas and explaining urban form and evolution.

      • CIRP 5306-001 Urban Economy

        This course provides an introduction to urban economy.  The objective of the course is to provide an introduction to the foundations of economic principles and their applications to urban areas and their development.  The purpose of the course is to provide an understanding of basic economic structures and processes and provide the students with an understanding of the functioning of markets for land and housing in urban areas, how economics can be used to evaluate public policies that affect those markets, and how these markets affect urban spatial structure.  We will use economic analysis to explain why cities exist, where they develop, how they grow, and how activities are arranged within cities.  We will also explore urban problems related to housing, transportation, poverty, crime and education.

        A theme throughout this course is the powerful set of market forces that continue the predominance of urban areas in our society.  Since market forces have in large part made our cities what they are today, it is only logical that they may also provide some solutions to any urban problems.  Thus, the course is organized around three basic sets of questions.

        1.  Why do cities exist?  Why do some grow faster than others?  How can urban and regional leaders attempt to encourage growth?

        2.  Why do certain portions of urban areas grow faster than others?  How and why do population/employment density and property prices vary across space?  How can property values and intra regional growth be managed?

        3.  What are some causes for urban problems such as poverty, homelessness and crowding, pollution, crime, and ghetto development?  What are cures and possible solutions?  Can we remedy them through education and economic development?

      • CIRP 5318-001 TECHNIQUES OF PLANNING & ADMINISTRATIVE ANALYSIS

        This course aims to introduce students to the major techniques commonly employed in planning and administrative practice.  These techniques include population/employment projection, project evaluation, land use/transportation models and regional economic analysis.  In addition, problem-solving process including systems analysis, qualitative group techniques and optimization techniques will be briefly introduced.  The objective is to develop the ability to use these planning techniques, to understand their limitations, to evaluate critically their use by others, and to learn to appreciate the subtle interplay of "scientific" methods and personal judgement in the ‘art’ of planning and administrative analysis.  There is no formal prerequisite for the course.
