The Center’s educational mission is to foster inter-disciplinary training to solve real-world challenges posed by modern cities. Our research areas are grounded in the disciplines covered by MSc/PhD programs in Civil Systems and Transportation.
Undergraduate Entry-level Course
Design and operation of smart, efficient, and resilient cities has come to require data science skills. This course teaches you to leverage data generated within transportation systems, power grids, communication networks, via crowd-sensing, and remote sensing technologies to build demand- and supply- side urban services based on data analytics.
Example Graduate Curriculum
The below example of the 1 year MSc curriculum includes a required number of core Systems courses and a selection of domain courses in urban planning, transportation and energy relevant to Smarter Cities research. It can be adapted to particular interests and career goals with an approval of your Graduate Academic Advisor. Your selection of courses have to comply with Departmental requirements.
