WORK AFTER THE MaCT

There is a lack of professionals who are capable of leading projects whose aim is to transform our cities from the 20th century production and distribution models, to the 21st century paradigms. The MaCT aims to create future professionals who will be able to undertake such projects, like Urban Consultants and Managers, Managers of Real-Time and Open Data, Smart-City 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, as well as Mobility Analysts and Urban Planners.

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.
