The Master in Smart Cities. Designing with Citizens suggests that the competitiveness, the economic development and the improvement of cities’ efficiency do not have to constitute an end in itself, but that have to be the natural consequence of the active implication of citizens in the evolution of urban societies to make them more sustainable, because only from the will and the empowerment of healthier, creative and socially involved citizens is possible to achieve that the city develops harmonically.

For this reasons the Master is structured in two big blocks that are closely related. From one hand, the knowledge of the structures, activities, services, uses, challenges and chances of the cities, and, from the other hand, the development of a final project designed by students teams with citizens that beyond its academic value, have as objective the implementation of an innovative activity to add value to the city.

The Design for All Foundation members and the BCD companies’ Club will have a 5% reduction in the course fee.
