Smart City Engineering (SCE)
Make cities more efficient, technologically advanced, greener and socially inclusive!
The city of tomorrow should be efficient, sustainable, inclusive and intelligent. It must facilitate our working life, adopt effective and sustainable means of all modes of transportation, and become a hub which allows for the voices of all to be heard. In short, the city of tomorrow should be a place in which our dreams come true.
No one person has the answer to every challenge or question that arises. As such we have combined expert skills from the scientific and industrial communities working in all areas of the Smart City. This includes experts from fields of study such as: neighborhood and urban planning, traffic planning, pollution control, water supply, waste and wastewater management, regenerative energies, digital technology and security as well as social aspects of urbanization and much more.
Smart City Engineering offers a multidisciplinary study experience that focuses on smart cities whilst also exploring those innovations and business solutions discovered as part of the transition to a more sustainable urban environment (design, deployment and operation of urban systems).
This course deals with the holistic development concepts of urban spaces with a focus on the aspects of: energy, environment, demographic change, population growth and scarcity of resources. The target group for this course is prospective students who want to help design neighborhoods and cities which are more efficient, technologically advanced, greener and socially inclusive: integrating innovative concepts.
