In the SMART Cities Masters degree, you will focus on tomorrow’s cities from multiple viewpoints, as you will discover in the following pages. As the range of issues in architecture and planning projects increases, so does the range of professionals involved, which in turn increases the complexity of projects. Future stakeholders of city planning must first experience and practice new collaboration tools before they can successfully integrate the professional world. They need new skills, new ways of working, the ability to take into consideration other perspectives and to step out of their comfort zone. The SMART Cities Masters’ degree embodies HEI’s desire to prepare students to become open-minded and well-rounded professionals with a realistic and inspired approach to technology and its’ environmental, ethical and societal challenges. -
