CSEN 1088 Seminar in Smart Cities

Course Information


  • What is "Smart City"? What makes a city smart? The Smart City concept is still evolving and can be viewed as a set of multidimensional components and core factors. The seminar explores current working definitions of "Smart City" and the various concepts related to them. The strategic principles aligning to the five main dimensions (technology, people, institutions, energy and, of course, transportation) of the Smart City are explained and focused on as urban outcomes rather than just technology in isolation. The challenges and opportunities of Smart Cities are also presented and discussed along with some real-life examples.
