UCL (University College London)
Smart Cities and Urban Analytics (RTPI Pathway)
This new programme is unique in its focus on the core challenges facing our increasingly 'smart' cities, from their operational functions and planning through to management and control. The programme reflects the changes that technology is making to the operation of, and our understanding of, the city, and gives students the technical and theoretical skills needed to make a difference to the planning of the cities of today and tomorrow.
Normally a minimum of a 2nd Class UK Honours degree in an appropriate subject, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Candidates who hold a professional or other qualification obtained by written examinations and approved by the university together with at least 3 years of appropriate professional experience may also be admitted. Please note only applicants who already hold a 1st degree in planning, already approved by the RTPI as the 1st 3 years of a 3+1 programme, will receive full RTPI accreditation on successful completion of this degree.
Core modules: geographic information systems and science; quantitative methods; smart cities: context policy and government; urban systems theory; spatial data capture, storage and analysis; urban design: place-making; planning practice.
The technical aspects of the programme will be delivered through traditional workshops, lectures and practicals, but we will seek to incorporate novel assessment methods such as blog posts, and shared outputs such as visualisations/maps and web apps. Assessment is through a variety of written coursework assignments and final dissertation, presentation of researched material and practical investigations, and participation in dedicated skills modules.
