Workload: 0-3-0-3-4
Prerequisites: Nil
Preclusion(s)/Cross-listing(s): Nil

This module will examine how more people can be packed into a limited city space while still providing the same quality of life. It will also explore how to achieve economic wealth while still fulfilling the CSR responsibilities of sustaining a “Green Planet”. Students will learn about smart city planning, design concepts, technology enablers and implementation considerations for smart city living. All big cities have several things in common – wealth creation, big companies, talented people, high population density and the challenge of air pollution. New York, London, Tokyo, Paris, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore, all face similar challenges of high population density and quality of living.

FMA1204C Saving Face

Modular credits: 4
Workload: 0-3-0-3-4
Prerequisites: Nil
Preclusion(s)/Cross-listing(s): Nil

This module seeks to explore ways in which we establish and manage identity through communication. Using practical examples, it will also guide students to develop positive facework skills in a variety of scenarios and settings. It will end with a look at cultural differences in the concept and practice of facework and examine how these in turn contribute to intercultural conflict.

Face is our socially situated identity that is constantly being negotiated during social interaction – we can lose face, save face or give face to others. Adroit face management is key to successful communication and interpersonal relationships in our lives.
