Urban Informatics

The MS and graduate certificate in urban informatics couples analysis of big data with an understanding of the big questions faced by cities. Students that graduate from the program will be provided with a framework that outlines the major social, political and environmental challenges in contemporary urbanization and specific data analytic skills to help address these challenges. Graduates will be positioned for jobs within urban planning and policy, architecture and design, engineering, public health, and real estate development as well as within technology and data analysis firms focused on providing solutions for cities. Specifically, students will be able to incorporate the social and political context of cities into their analysis of urban data.
