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. -

In a world facing environmental, social and economic challenges, how we manage changes to our natural and built environments will be crucial for our future. In our urbanised world, how we design and plan our cities impact our environmental sustainability, health and even happiness. This programme will equip you with the skills to be part of making progressive changes in your place. In practice, there is a common tension between those developing and interpreting planning policy on the one hand, and the designers of cities on the other. This programme brings these groups together to engage in project-based learning. You will develop planning research, urban analysis and design skills before deciding whether to complete an urban design thesis or dissertation. Both of these options can be completed as work-based studies with opportunities for summer placements. -
