Master and Expert in Smart Cities & Intelligent Buildings of the University of Salamanca

The term "Smart City" sprung in recent years and it is going to have an ever-growing influence on our society. Some cities have already started to identify themselves as smart by demonstrating their technological adaptation to attract new citizens and investments, optimise city services, improve the living standards and maximize the planned investments.

This master's degree has been introduced as a result of the novel vision of cities and the technological paradigm of Smart Cities. Upon the completion of this degree students acquire a professional profile that is highly demanded nowadays. They will be knowledgeable about the technologies and computer models used within the framework of Smart Cities (data collection, automation, data science, platforms, building automation, energy consumption, efficiency, sustainability, etc.).

Why Smart Cities?

This programme has been one of the most influential experiences of my ICT career. It has been a great experience that allowed me to explore ideas openly and receive feedback not only from teachers, but also from my peers.
