The programme will focus on the issues of urban planning and management using new city models and technologies. It will be 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 will take 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.
