An intensive design studio introducing students to a glocal issues focusing on complex elements of the public realm with attention to the urban fabric as a generator of social life in public places; the program modules (2 and 3) will provide the basis for the content that is needed to accomplish this studio. Students work in small groups/gilds to produce an urban design project with a specific proposal to a selected urban issue addressing a complex reality, social, economic, environmental, or cultural. The context and the project task is “glocal”, i.e. Swedish or -and, European based but at the same time addressing similar problems and challenges globally. The project advances the idea of learning from history of urban form and creating contemporary urbanism that is of "cityism" - city like qualities and character, dynamic and kinetic, of a livable community feel and democratically inclusive place, and of high urbanity where the public realm, squares, streets, quarters and public life play a pivotal role in shaping and composing the spatial form.

The objective of this course is to provide students with an active learning experience during which they will acquire both theoretical and practical knowledge in the realm of urban planning and design, regional development and urban sociology. The aim of the course is to assist planners, architects, urban designers, civil engineers and human geographers, to understand the concepts, skills, and strategies that are needed in dealing with contemporary cities, i.e. global metropolitan regions faced with increasingly complex challenges as well as opportunities but also converging crises ranging from climate change, economic crisis, urbanization to growing diversity and movement of people. This course aims to develop skills, through various course modules, for addressing metropolitan structural changes and for exploring strategies that will make a difference both at the city and on a regional scale. Both European/Nordic and non-EU (American, African and Asian) situations and cases are studied. An investigation of these will not only address site-scale planning & design issues but also it will cover in depth the broader social, ecological, cultural and political processes that dynamically shape our urban spaces, landscapes, and people’s everyday lives and experiences. The course “Challenges for Metropolitan Urban Regions” sets out to examine the multiple, multifaceted and competing forces that influence the (place) making of contemporary metropolitan cityscapes.

The Studio is a part of three studio project series and it is the International Placemaking Studio, preceded by the Nordic Studio - Urban Public Places and Advanced Urban Space Studio. The aim for all three studios is to foresee urban planning and design issues and problems that will be coming into the public focus in the near future. After completing this international studio the students will be able to fully grasp and understand the dynamic conditions acting on modern cities, specifically issues of regional urbanization, urbanistic genericism and informal globalization. Creating consciousness through concrete examples that place the social reality of a site at the forefront of political discussion will be a nunaced element that the students will acquire during the course of their work with the project. Students will be able to adopt a placemaking approach that is a humanistic process defined by reality. The studio adopts concrete strategies for physical appropriation and production through the students work which will envision a platform for public performance to serve as a catalyst for social reform. Finally the studio offers students a completely different approach to intervention in the public realm, one of kinetic accupuncture method based on inclusivity and transformative placemaking strategies - making a public space into a living place.

Why study Internet Technology and Architecture?

Everything is becoming connected - both on small and large scale. More information is being exchanged and data processed than ever before. Complex networks are needed in vehicles and in between vehicles, in data centres and to data centres. These networks are needed to make electric grid, cities and industries smarter. As emerging networks need to serve critical infrastructures as well as diverse application requirements, future network design demands professionals with deep theoretic knowledge, good technical skills, and innovative thinking.

Why choose Internet Technology and Architecture at EIT Digital?

The Master programme in Internet Technology and Architecture (ITA) is in line with the challenging field of computing communication and networking technologies that has lately received considerable attention and is today considered as a major topic for most recent curriculum studies in Information Technology (IT). The rapid evolution of the discipline has a profound effect on IT education, affecting both content and pedagogy. The programme also equips students with both theoretical and practical concepts through analytical processes and tools that will develop critical thinking skills in assessing entrepreneurship opportunities and devising appropriate strategies and tactics in developing an idea into a profitable business venture.

The aim of this programme is to provide the students with rigorous theoretical knowledge of current research issues as well as detailed practical experience of network design, development, implementation, operations, applications, systems and services. Students will acquire the skills to contribute to future developments in the field of Network design and implementation.

This Master’s degree is offered by leading universities in the area of network architectures and technologies. Graduates will be prepared for careers in advanced research and/or industry. They will also be equipped with the skillset to start their own technology business.

What are the career opportunities?

As networks become critical components in traditional industries such as transportation, energy and health services, new sectors are demanding communication and networking professionals. Upon successful completion of the ITA master's programme, students qualify both in technical and business roles.

Potential employers include large corporations as well as small enterprises, working on the design, engineering and production of communication components, devices and systems. Graduates easily find work as developers, network planners, consultants and ICT managers to plan, manage and maintain large networked computer systems that support modern distributed enterprise systems. They can also create their own business.

This programme also aims to provide detailed knowledge and critical understanding of the theoretical and conceptual frameworks for an R&D career both in academia and industry, with an ability to continue in a follow-up PhD project.

How is the programme structured?

All EIT Digital Master School programmes follow the same scheme:

  • Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe.
  • Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
  • The first year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.
  • In between the first year and the second year, a summer school addresses business opportunities within a socially relevant theme.
  • The second year offers a specialisation and a graduation project. The gradation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and results in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.

This one-year Master’s programme is aimed at graduates from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and city planning who are specifically concerned with design issues of the public realm and the effects these have on social life and human behaviour. Our focus is to deepen theoretical and design knowledge, changing the mindset of professionals regarding the importance and value of the public realm in the design of our cities.

The rationale behind Urbanism Studies is for professionals to understand and work in interdisciplinary design and planning teams, coupled with the growing desire for cities to establish different, new forms of urban living. As the goal of this programme is to move design thinking from objects to places, our core Urban Studios differ from traditional studios in several ways.

Our approach involves in-depth explorations of urban design issues by combining five topic-based modules situated within the three studio courses. Ongoing seminar reading series and urban film studies are included in the studios. The integrated final project builds upon the previous three studios, leading to a thesis portfolio that reflects the main achievements and thinking of each student as an outcome and product of their intense, focused learning throughout the year.

Furthermore, students are offered the opportunity to collaborate with some of the leading Built Environment (Urbanism) programmes in the world: ETH Zürich, CED at UC Berkeley, UCL Bartlett in London and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston. This affords students fantastic global collaborative opportunities on a wide range of real world cases. Urbanism Studies is externally supported and financed by Ax:son Johnson Foundation, as well as by KTH – Royal Institute of Technology.

Urban Sociology and Environmental psychology are interdisciplinary fields focused on the sociological study of life and human interaction in metropolitan areas and the interplay between individuals and their surroundings as well as the role of cities in the development of the society as whole.This module introduces the students to the major theoretical formulations and models in the area of environmental psychology related to people and places, such as privacy, personal space, place attachment and environmental restoration such as place identity, place attachment, environmental consciousness, behavior settings and others. Also the course explores new urban theory, as well as the evolution of cities including suburbanization, race relations, gentrification, street life, sustainability (economic, social and environmental), redevelopment, urban politics, and key international comparisons. Readings in the course focus on theory, specific cities, and environmental concerns. Course will also address issues such as effects of the economic crisis on housing markets, democracy on public policy, and questions of social status, gender, lifestyles, and culture on urban development. Relationships between the physical environment, natural and human-made, and the behavior of human beings will be studied in-depth; focus is on perceptual, cognitive, and motivational aspects of the human-environmental interaction. Specific physical settings will be studied from the behavioral aspects in relation to issues of spatial determinism.

An intensive studio introducing students to the Scandinavian-Nordic context and region, focusing on the public realm with attention to the urban form analysis, social life, landscape design and processes of collaborative work in strategic planning and implementation of public space. Students work collaboratively to produce a project that is theoretically rooted in the form of a strategic urban design public space project on the city level. This course is about rethinking the public realm and designing new public spaces - an urban square or an urban park in the urban landacape. The space should have an actuality in the local political discussion as well as the global discussions about climate and ecological issues but also the issues of human scale, enjoyment, aestethics, history and culture. Public space should be complex and contain a variety of functions and programs for all. The question that will be raised is how can we work according to long-term goals when the public’s mood, expectations and desires change so easily? The question of what should be public spaces, and what our public should be like, is highly political, since we all have different opinions of what constitutes a good life. Can we design and maintain public places for good life based on timeless principles of civic design? Can Urban Design, Landscape Architecture and Urban -Town Planning have a common language and understanding when it comes to design of urban, nature and landscape sensitive places - public realms that should be attractive, enjoyable, engaging, inclusive but also lifelong transformative.
