The programme focuses on the issues of urban planning and management using new city models and technologies. It is led by international and Russian scholars and experts who are forming the current agenda for smart city development in Russia and worldwide.

The key principle of the programme is learning by doing. The programme takes place in a laboratory-type environment where students will try new technology, prepare prototypes, investigate and analyse the city through data, and develop projects that come as a relevant response to complex problems that affect modern cities.

The programme invites architects, designers, engineers, economists, entrepreneurs and graduates interested in the management of cities and technologies. The skills acquired during the programme will provide the graduates with a variety of career opportunities in large technological companies, city administrations or their own innovative businesses.

Daily use of flying vehicles: from fiction to reality

Today flying cars are not just a part of a sci-fi world. In the nearest future we are likely to start using them on a wide scale. In order to do that, the infrastructure of the cities will have to be changed, charges added, landing pads and other relevant services provided. The authorities will need to establish new traffic laws and come up with alternative restrictions and rules. Nikolay Bezhko, lead community manager at McFly.aero is sharing his company’s experience on the above topics.
