Course content

For the first time in history, more than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas - towns and cities that are increasingly connected and influenced by “smart” technologies. Urban Informatics and Analytics is an emerging interdisciplinary approach to addressing the urban challenges arising from these developments.

Our unique MSc develops the practical skills needed - such as data analytics and visualisation techniques - to tackle these challenges, combining practice with cutting-edge theoretical and methodological understanding of urban systems. Our course offers you:

  • Deep understanding of urban science and digital cities
  • Practical and analytical skills to explore, visualise and make sense of city-scale spatial data
  • Interdisciplinary methodological skills to design solutions to the world’s urban challenges - capitalising on emerging developments in big data analytics and digital technologies

MSc Urban Informatics and Analytics is taught by the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies and the Department of Computer Science.
