The rapid growth of urbanisation coupled with the rise of digital technologies has contributed to a huge transformation of city lives. While we are facing several challenges in different fronts such as transportation, energy and living spaces, advances in technology have opened up a range of new opportunities to innovate and design smart cities. Smart Cities go beyond offering a decent quality of life. Smart Cities are characterised by, among other things, efficient use of resources, intelligent mobility solutions, digitalised services, low emissions and smart infrastructures.
Smart City Market is continually growing as cities and governments around the world acknowledge the urgency of urban innovation and transition. Therefore, we need smart concepts and vision for cities. This is where our graduates add value.
We prepare our students to become experts who can create sustainable future solutions for our cities and mobility by applying innovative design management.
The Master’s specialisation in Smart City Design is taught in English and is designed to provide you with sound competencies in business, management and design. You will be studying topics of architecture, ecology and sociology with an emphasis on digital services. You will learn to analyze requirements, opportunities and risks in order to develop realistic future scenarios for the urban environment.
Through project work and case studies, you will learn about the emerging trends such as autonomous driving, renewable energies and e-governance. The study course provides you with, among other things, expert knowledge about modern working methods such as agile project management and design thinking.
