We have all been in a city before (if not, then welcome to Aachen!) and they are a hallmark of civilization. Bustling with activity, everyone is busy with their own ideas and objectives.

 

This is all, in a way, a gigantic mess, and as we face more and more challenges in the 21st century, it quickly becomes important to optimize the city. How do people get from one place to another? Where do different groups usually spend their time? How do all of these communities interact with the technology and infrastructure around them?

 

In this course you will be exploring the technological side of how a city accommodates the needs and demands of the modern urban world, and more importantly, what can be done to bolster its sustainability. You will learn what really constitutes a smart city.
