The Graduate Degree track in ICT Technologies for Planning aims to form a new professional profile that can provide innovative answers to the challenges of the new “Smart City-Cittā Intelligente” scenario, on a national and international level.

The development of activities in this field is aimed at innovating services for citizens and businesses in a perspective of transparency, multi-tasking, and active and informed participation in decision-making, eco-development, and democracyespecially in regards to new ways of dialogue and cooperation between Public Administration and local communities. This is a context that is characterised by strong impulses stemming from EU actions, originating from “Europa 2020”, as well as from the “Agenda Digitale Europea”.

The study plan of this third track combines the workshop experience shared with the other two tracks with specific disciplinary contributions related to: the development of sensor networks for monitoring, the development of advanced territory information systems, and the use of remote-sensing.

 

Professional profile

The Graduate Degree Programme aims at forming a professional figure that is able to hold key roles in the planning, coordination, and consultancy processes in the fields of local planning, urban design, and landscape and environmental design; a figure that is able to interact with a public and private clientele, as well as with both expert and non-expert audiences. Furthermore, he/she will be equipped with advanced skills in the use of new technologies in areas of planning and urban design.

The urban designer/planner will be able to interact with interdisciplinary work teams, as well as creatively express the knowledge and skills gained in response to new demands from society and from the market, projecting themselves towards future work.

Graduates may work as freelancers on a self-employed basis. They must take a Professional Licensing Examination. Upon passing, they may enrol in the professional register of Architects, Planners, Landscape Designers, and Curators/Section A; or offer professional, unregulated consultancy in the areas of planning and, more generally, in that of research in urban, regional, and environmental transformation.
