This chapter explains the meaning of the term “Urban Engineering” by describing the relationship of the two terms – urban and engineering (Cavada et al. 2022). It discusses how the two terms converges and the ways urban engineering can provide beneficial solutions to design future urban transformations. This chapter also relates urban engineering to other urban concepts to indicate similarities. Urban engineering can relate, for example, to smartness, as it has been explored in recent research to offer an assessment for decision-making and establish communication between those involved and those affected by the proposed urban transformations.
