Digital Design

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

The field of digital design employs software, tools and processes to engineer objects and forms to meet the needs of business, educational, government and non-profit clients. In addition to diagnostic and creative talents, digital design professionals are aided by computers in crafting solutions.

Master in Smart Cities

Bau Design College of Barcelona
Campus Full time October 2017 Spain Barcelona

When the smart city concept first emerged during the last decade, it constituted the contribution of information and communication technology (ICT) to the development of cities for learning, adaptation and innovation. [+]

Best Master Degrees in Digital Design in Europe 2017/2018. Master in Smart Cities. Designing with Citizens When the smart city concept first emerged during the last decade, it constituted the contribution of information and communication technology (ICT) to the development of cities for learning, adaptation and innovation. However, since then the concept has shifted towards a more neoliberal stance promoted by multinational companies, who view ICT as a means of enhancing the competitiveness of cities through the development of the digital economy. The Master’s degree in Smart Cities. Designing with Citizens, coordinated by the Design for All Foundation and Bau Design College of Barcelona takes the approach that competitiveness, economic development and improved efficiency in cities should not be an end in itself. Rather, it should be the natural consequence of the active involvement of citizens in the evolution of urban societies towards greater sustainability, as the harmonious development of a city may only be achieved through the will and empowerment of healthier, more creative and socially engaged citizens. A city may only be “smart” if its citizens collectively take up the challenge of innovating intelligently and sustainably, with the aim of creating more livable, viable and equitable cities. This programme therefore aims to provide a different view of the challenges faced by cities and the opportunities opening up this century, offering students not only an understanding of urban issues but also practical knowledge and the ability to use tools to facilitate co-creation with citizens to design smart, sustainable cities....
