Master in City & Technology Student Profile:

The Master in City and Technology is aimed at engineers, architects, designers, economists, sociologists, entrepreneurs, environmental scientists, urban planners and urban designers and graduates related with the transformation and management of our cities and technologies of information.

The course aims to transform these people into social innovators, project leaders and chief strategists who will foster the conversion of art, science, industry and politics towards the unfolding of a new future.

Once successfully finished, IAAC students will then join the IAAC Alumni Community, an active and dynamic network of visionary professionals spread around the world, promoting principles and applications of Advanced Architecture and exploring new academic and research initiatives, leading to award-winning practices or working for internationally acclaimed firms and institutions.

WORK AFTER THE MaCT

There is currently a lack of professionals who are capable of leading projects where the aim is to transform our cities from 20th-Century production and distribution models to the 21st-Century paradigms. The MaCT course aims to create future professionals who will be able to undertake such projects, such as Urban Consultants and Managers, Managers of RealTime and Open Data, SmartCity Planning Consultants, City Administration Digital Officers, Smart City Project Managers and Urban App Developers.

Moreover, graduates of the MaCT will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to work in the public sector as Public Policy Administrators, Public Space Administrators, Mobility Analysts and Urban Planners.

In addition to the public sector, we aim to create strong professionals in the private sector such as Environmental Resources Managers, City Waste Managers, Clean Energy Optimisation Managers, Urban Welfare Inspectors, Urban Studies Advisors and finally, experts in Urban Data visualisation, Mobility Micro and Macro Simulations, GIS Software, and Augmented and Virtual Reality.

In general, our goal is to create future professionals who will be able to work in a series of departments, depending on their focus of expertise. Such sectors include Renewable Energy, Innovation, Infrastructure and Transportation, SmartTechnologies, Urban Consulting, Academies, City Management, Natural Resources, Public Spaces, Recycling and Public Waste, Data Visualisation and, of course, Urban Planning.
