Many of the most influential projects and products today are not solely mechanical, physical, electrical or electronic. They are driven by networked computing devices and software to create smart systems that improve resilience, efficiency and value. Examples range from hybrid vehicles to self-healing power grids.

The MSc is suitable for:

  • graduates in computing disciplines with an interest in resilient, networked, distributed, mobile and smart systems, embedded computing and control
  • computing professionals wanting to upgrade their existing skills
  • engineering graduates from any discipline with an interest in urban engineering (infrastructure or planning)
  • professional engineers in firms and organisations who have established smart cities groups
  • graduates from other numerate disciplines
