During the master’s degree the students complete an on-site practicum in different cities around the world where they develop real smart city projects working alongside city public authorities. Students who complete the programme will be qualified to work in the new and promising profession of smart urban technologist, an advantageous position from which to enter the incipient market for smart city solutions and consulting, as well as to deepen their knowledge in research careers.
