Course content

In the last decade, urban informatics has gained recognition as a new approach to the study of cities and urban life. This is partly due to the harnessing of big and open data relating to urban infrastructure, socio-economic profiles and activities that take place in cities; and in part a result of developments in urban science, computational social science and complexity theory.

This course will enable you to understand and promote the theory and science of smart cities and to analyse city-scale data. You’ll also gain the skills to transform this data into knowledge, capitalising on emerging developments in big data and interdisciplinary methods to tackle the world’s urban challenges. Unlike most existing courses that have a disciplinary focus, this course offers a uniquely interdisciplinary approach to urban studies that combines training in theoretical approaches with knowledge of practice-based methodological skills. This means you’ll develop the skills to understand, support, and manage urban systems, and harness the opportunities that sensor, mobile and internet technologies offer within smart cities.

This course, a collaboration between the Centre for Interdisciplinary methodologies (CIM) and the Warwick Institute for the Science of Cities (WISC), also provides a pathway to the PhD programme in Urban Science at WISC, if you intend to undertake further postgraduate research at doctoral level. WISC has ties with CUSP (Center for the Urban Science and Progress) at New York University and the recently established CUSP London.
