    Design smart and sustainable cities.
    By 2050, 80% of the world’s population will be living in cities. Soaring urban population is already putting a strain on the city infrastructures like transportation systems and public spaces. At the same time, the environmental impact of the cities is also rising by the day. Therefore, we stand at the critical juncture where we must reimagine the urban eco-systems and design innovative and sustainable solutions.

    With the emergence of advanced digital technologies, endless opportunities to design smart city infrastructure and solutions have opened up in areas like mobility, urban governance or the built environment. As city dwellers, we are already using digital solutions to improve our daily lives and reduce costs. For instance, we are using ride-sharing apps and checking road congestion on our devices. Technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), self-driving vehicles, smart-grid and big data solutions will play a major role in transforming how we live in the cities. However, technologies are simply tools. Realizing the vision of smart cities demands more than just harnessing the new technologies.  

    We need experts who can visualize the concepts for innovative solutions for future and mobilize interdisciplinary teams in designing and delivering those solutions. With the Smart City Design M.A., the Macromedia University aims to fill the skill gap and train the urban innovators and planners of tomorrow. They will be proficient in agile design methods like design thinking. As they will be working at the intersection of architecture, design, public policy and mobility, it is imperative that they have a thorough understanding of the urban challenges, risks and the relevant tools and technologies. A positive attitude towards change and motivation to actively shape the changes will fuel them while dealing with challenging projects in mobility, urban governance or the built environment.

    How can cities design solutions tailored to their needs by drawing from innovations in the various sectors? How can Internet-of-Things (IoT), digitalisation and big data be applied in designing efficient and sustainable urban solutions? How will cities have to change to adapt to the evolving urban mobility systems? How to ensure human-orientation when implementing new technologies in city infrastructures such as transportation and the built environment? These are the examples of challenges you will learn to address during this Master’s programme in Smart City Design. If these challenges inspire you and motivate you, you are the right candidate for the Master’s programme in Smart City Design.
