Course Overview

This Online Academy programme looks at the systems, frameworks, control mechanisms, and technologies behind Smart City initiatives, as well as the opportunities, ecosystems, and the global community behind much of the progress.

Case studies are used extensively to illustrate and analyse the requirements, as well as the dangers (and associated safeguarding mechanisms). Standardisation, benchmarking and the role of the different players within the various ecosystems are explored, including the role and opportunities for leading and coordinating specific elements of the overall system.
