The International Master ‘Be Smart In the City’ is an advanced training programme aimed at providing the knowledge and skills needed to design, develop, and manage the complex systems that make up smart cities.
The programme consists of a combination of theoretical and practical modules with exercises, examples, and case studies.
The Master is divided into 17 modules and explores a new reality in the digital age based on the functioning of urban and environmental nerve centers in synergy with the human beings and in synchronous intersectoral balance of the urban connective system. The “Big Challenge” of the old continent: existing cities are set on a systemic mechanism to be digitally optimised. The topics that will be covered for the development and management of a Smart City will concern urban sociology, development methods in the housing-environmental, microclimatic, energy, legal, cultural and architectural, museum, metaverse, cyber security, circular economy, transhumanism and ethics, disability/vulnerability and digital. digital technology sectors (IoT, BIM), agri-food sectors, green mobility. A new managerial vision for managing a digital city.
The course is divided into 17 modules covering the following topics:
Definition of the Smart City and Its Models
|In its terminological sense, the ‘Smart City,’ already known in Anglo-American literature in 2008, reshapes the concept of a city. The widespread collective discomfort of contemporary cities, where residents struggle with the altered daily life dictated by the disharmonious functioning of the urban environment, constantly operates at a frenetic pace, managing its functions in a disjointed and convulsive manner due to the lack of systematic and methodological planning.
The construction of the Smart City requires a focus on the physical and technological layers of urban development.
Smart City Development and Sustainability
|The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to rethink the concept of inhabiting our cities. Notably, the 2021 Architecture Biennale posed a crucial question: “how will we live together?”
Irreversible digital acceleration and the demand for social interaction.
Temporality and the speed of change.
The new theory of value.
Digital Solutions and Innovation Managers
Building Information Modeling-BIM
|The profound transformation of design, construction, and management processes in the built environment, regulated by digital data, fits within the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Within this context, Building Information Modeling (BIM) has developed, involving the management of informative modeling of buildings and constructions made possible by a structured virtual model (also known by the same acronym, BIM).
The development of BIM is based on the need to coordinate all information related to the design process, from individual element drawings to cost estimation, from temporal management to financial management.
Microclimate and Environment
|The anticipated climate changes by 2050 are now a major concern, with the risk associated with surpassing tipping points.
Interactions in the urban environment, atmospheric pollution. Constructing healthy cities.
Agriculture 4.0 and Urban Gardens
|Agriculture and rural transformation in a digital context. Sustainability of rural areas and application methods. The context in which the food-city relationship is situated is a global one. Food security and our ability to ensure proper and sufficient nutrition for all.
Urban horticulture brings together what is typically widely separated: food production and urban space. Urban farming encompasses every space, from small home gardens to community gardens and large city parks, including green roofs.
Hydrogen on the road
|Sustainable mobility is an approach to the planning and use of transportation that aims to minimize environmental, social, and economic impacts while promoting an efficient, safe, and equitable transportation system.|
Disciplines working on spatial transformation are increasingly directing our societies, cities, and territories towards the path of metabolism and global ecological footprint, which must not exceed the planet’s resources.
How to make existing heritage in our already built cities “Smart.”
Metaverses and Augmented Reality
|Introduction to the Metaverse. Meaning, use, and future developments. From virtual reality to augmented reality, how technology and the market are evolving in this sector.|
Smart City and Cultural Heritage
Architettura ed Archeologia nella Nuova Era Digitale
|The presence of a vast artistic and cultural heritage throughout the national territory, along with extraordinary landscape richness, makes Italy an exceptional testing ground for the planned use of new technologies regarding integrated telecommunication systems aimed at solutions for the preservation and enhancement of cultural assets.
Research and restoration in the digital world, new languages. Architectural assets, archaeology, and BIM.
Cyber Security and Blockchain
|Different levels of protection and their management.
Integrated processes in the city and institutions.
|It is essential to focus on the fact that exhaustible and corruptible sources and natural resources must be preserved.
This involves not only limiting consumption but also reintroducing what no longer serves economic needs and functionality back into the production cycle through appropriate processes.
Development of circular economy processes in various areas of sustainable cities.
Soft Law and Smart Cities
|Administrative simplification, technology as an effective tool for eliminating forms of administrative power intermediation.
Smart working and teleworking, one evolving from the other, both seemingly inspired by flexibility but showing divergences upon closer inspection.
Analysis of legal systems.
Transhumanism and Ethics
Digital and Disability
|When experimenting with or applying transhumanist technologies, it is crucial to ensure that the individuals involved have full control over decisions regarding their body and mind. Informed consent must be a priority.
It is essential to ensure that digital technologies, such as websites, applications, and devices, are designed and developed with accessibility approach in mind. This means that they must be usable by individuals with disabilities, including those with visual, auditory, motor, or cognitive impairments.
|Case Studies models of various sustainable urban operations worldwide and Italian.|
Uban Planning e Sustainability
|Applying the concept of sustainability to the city generates a model of a smart city.
|The Smart City and the Sustainable City.|
The overall objective of the Master is to acquire enabling skills and abilities related to working in smart cities.
The Teachers are prominent figures from the national and international academic, scientific, and private sectors operating in various fields.
