Be part of the Future. Cities around the world are facing acute challenges and with this course, could you be the person who finds the solutions?
The MSc in Future Cities is the first course of its kind in the UK that is looking into the future of cities and provides you with the skills and knowledge to establish long term solutions using data and social science.
The World Health Organisation estimates that by 2050, seven out of ten people will be living in cities; yet as the UN-Habitat programme explains, cities are already using 78% of the earth’s resources and produce 60% of its CO2.
While the future of cities has become the main topic of discussion for local governments around the globe, it is becoming more apparent that the issues need a more holistic approach. This course will equip you with an in-depth understanding of the geography, space, location and built and natural environment and their growing connection and dependencies on data in order for you to develop holistic solutions.
Are you interesting in cities and achieving integrated and co-created solutions to city problems? Do you want to establish a better understanding of geography and the built and natural environment, developing technical skills to find out how data can be utilized for the good of the city? Then this is the course for you.
A UK Bachelor’s degree (1st, 2:1 or 2:2) in any built and natural Environment subjects or computer programming related subject area or equivalent overseas qualification (Geography Landscape Architecture, City Planning, Urban Design, Architecture, Architectural/Environmental Engineering, Computing etc.)
