This unique and innovative master's degree is the first of its kind in the region and explores what cities are, and what they can be. It goes beyond the concept of a smart city to also cover important technological, social, and sustainability issues to ensure a comprehensive and holistic approach to the cities of today and tomorrow. As a world leader in smart cities and urban development, Dubai is the ideal place to study such a program and see digitalization in effect.
The graduate degree will help you build and develop efficient, sustainable, and community-based cities and cultivate awareness of the interdisciplinary history of modern cities, urban economics, city development, and planning theory, urban ecology, demography, and applied problem-solving and research methods.
Providing an all-encompassing view of the development of the city, the program also addresses key subjects such as water, food, waste, transport, education, and energy systems, taking into account complex interactions between each of the elements. City Sciences is an emerging interdisciplinary plan of action that includes the designer, the technologist, and the humanist all working together. It prepares you for smart cities that can talk, giving live status updates through networks on traffic patterns, pollution, parking, water and energy, and other vital information.
The program can be completed in as little as 16 months.
Flexible Timings: The class schedule caters to working professionals, providing intensive seminars offered in the evenings at our campus in Dubai Silicon Oasis.
