Smart cities, big data, virtual reality (VR) and other technologies are important in planning more sustainable, productive and resilient cities.The Master of City Analytics is a unique degree, upskilling the next generation of city data, analytics and modelling professionals. You will be able to harness the power of data-driven approaches in understanding and influencing the inherent complexity of the city. You will also broaden and deepen your skill set in this area, enabling you to contribute to the development of data-driven, evidence-based policy and decision making across our cities. The core elements of this degree are courses relevant to Smart Cities Scientific Programming, Digital Cities, GIS in Planning and Urban Data Visualisation. It culminates in a major project which is either a research thesis or a practice-oriented report.
