OVERVIEW
_

THE URBAN POPULATION IS EXPECTED TO DOUBLE BY 2050, MAKING URBANIZATION ONE OF THE MOST TRANSFORMATIVE TRENDS OF THE 21ST CENTURY.

United Nations-UNHabitat,
October 2017, The World Cities Day

OUR SMART CITY CONCEPT:

A smart city makes your life better, happier, as a citizen.
Human-centered design is the way to understand the city as a system.
No more partial solutions.
A multidisciplinary way of thinking and acting.
Bring back “the village concept,” leave behind mega cities.
Find innovative solutions from the local scale. Be sustainable.

At a time when the majority of the world’s population is urban, the sustainable development of cities is more relevant than ever. New urban models need to be invented to be conceived more respectful towards people and the planet.

Increasing size of contemporary cities, as well as their day-to-day growing complexity, gives city stakeholders the opportunity to incorporate information and communication technologies in the provision of municipal public services, while developing participation-sensitive governance tools, paying special attention to the efficiency of processes, especially in energy & water systems and its sustainability.

How a Smart City is considered depends on two main factors: First, the amount of data it can produce in its day-to-day operations, and how much of this data can be turned into useful information. Second, how -and who by- this information can be used to improve city performance at all levels in order to achieve a better environment, increase the welfare of its citizens, and, of course, discover new fields for social and economic innovation.

The Global UrbanTIC® and Smart Cities Certification Program is designed to fill the current gap between the two most influential groups in Smart City systems implementation; it puts both city management professionals and technological urban innovators in contact, developing a common language in order to promote innovation in the current development of cities.

The Global UrbanTIC® and Smart Cities Certification Program is the online and English version of the already existing Mastère spécialisé® UrbanTIC® conceived and taught in the École des Ingénieurs de la Ville de Paris (EIVP), now in its 9th Edition.

Interview with the The Global UrbanTIC® and Smart Cities Certification Program director, Ignasi Pérez Arnal, about the launch of the new Master.

ABOUT EIVP

eivplogo

Since its foundation 70 years ago, the École des Ingénieurs de la Ville de Paris (EIVP) has had the mission of training engineers specialized in urban engineering, who propel the renovation to which Paris was committed after the Second World War. Now, EIVP has become one of the world leaders in the training of municipal technicians and professionals in service companies for the city.

EIVP has collaboration agreements with a network of 33 universities and associated institutions across five continents and participates in the main international cooperation programs.

TOP INDUSTRY LEADERS

Smart Dubai

Zigurat interviewed Zeina El Kaissi, Head of Emerging Technology and Global Partnerships at Smart Dubai, during the Smart City Expo World Congress. Zeina explains what the project is and it’s main goal: the city smart transformation. Dubai wants to become a smart city and a better place for the citizens and for that, the government is working with all the entities in order to make it possible.

ACADEMIC CONTENT
_

The Global UrbanTIC® and Smart Cities Certification Program consists of hybrid didactic contents that are oriented to the improvement of both the urban environment and the welfare of its inhabitants, in the context of continuous changes, new challenges and, luckily, new possibilities.

6 MODULES-PROGRAM IN 1 YEAR

This program is organized in six modules in order to give a multidisciplinary and international approach to the emerging  technological tools in urban contexts, especially those who bring an innovative response for the main challenges of cities.

Every module is taught across a specific case of study and after completing 3 modules, the participants will work collaboratively in a final project.

grafica-750x403

As the 12-months program is organized in two semesters of 3 modules each, the participants will have the chance to choose to start in any opening edition. For example, the applicant can start in September ‘18 and finish in September ‘19 or start in March ‘19 and finish in March ‘20.

When beginning the studies, the participant will always have an introductory module ‘M0. SMART CITIES POINT ZERO’, in order to make sure that all participants have a common background.

Either if the participants start in one edition or another, they will always have the chance to join a ‘Field Trip’ that will be held in different cities from all over the world. The first three ‘Field Trips’ are planned in Paris, Barcelona and Dubai.
