What is a group project?
Called also capstone or workgroup, this highlight of Master's degrees Regional and Urban Strategy, Governing the Large Metropolis and the Urban Planning Programme, puts the students in professional situation. These have to answer to an order of a private or public structure on an urban or territorial problem (housing environment, planning, economic development, transport, mobility, etc.).
During 5 to 9 months (according to the course), every team from 4 to 5 students works under the supervision of a tutor, a specialist of the handled question. The project ends in an oral presentation of the students to the commissioning organisation. This period of renditions takes place of the end of May to the middle of June.
