Master's of Engineering in Sustainable Smart Cities

Cities are engines of economic growth, innovation, education and culture — they are also home to concentrations of poverty, social exclusion, and environmental degradation, and are responsible for 80% of the world’s carbon dioxide output. Rapid technological developments present unprecedented opportunities for cities to design and adapt into smart, sustainable environments through digital technologies, big data, smart mobility, renewable energy, and low-energy buildings and neighborhoods. UAB’s two-year online master’s concentration in Sustainable Smart Cities will equip you with the knowledge and skills to help build the sustainable smart cities of the future.
