Master’s Programme 'Prototyping Future Cities'

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.

HSE Students Come Up with a House of the Future

Perhaps, in the not-so-distant future, people will be living in skyscrapers made of wood and concrete with a farm on the first floor and solar panels on the roof. Such a model of a future residential block was presented by the students of the master's programme ‘Prototyping Future Cities’. To create the model, they studied houses in Moscow that have been built over the past hundred years and analyzed international experience. Their model was presented at the Moscow Urban Forum in July and, on September 13 (HSE Day), it will be possible to see it again at Gorky Park.
