Join us for a webinar exploring our brand new MSc programme, developed with industry and building on the need for a set of skills in programming, data capture, visualization, and prototyping with stakeholders to support the analysis of complex systems.
Hosted by the academic team who are leading the course, the webinar will introduce the MSc to prospective students and answer any questions you have regarding the programme content, relevant fields of study, applications and funding, and the structure and format of our teaching and learning in 2021.
Our unique kinaesthetic approach means that our research and teaching will be delivered within a living lab environment. We believe in learning through doing and have a focus on building and deploying physical prototypes to develop the transferable skill set which is employable in the emerging market place of the Internet of Things, Smart Cities, Future Living and Data Science.
The programme is being developed as part of the Future Living Institute and is heavily influenced by their making, living, originating, connecting academic themes.
Our built environment can serve as an efficient means of living – culturally, interactively, and ecologically. Our natural environment reflects the ecosystems required to sustain life and encompasses the interaction of living species, weather, climate and natural resources. As with most complex systems, understanding the system is essential to facilitating their effective operation. The advance of digital technologies provides the instruments for observing and gaining insights into our environment. It also cannot be delivered in isolation of socio-political implications.
Those at the forefront of creating our connected environments are increasingly looking for solutions combining expertise in multiple business areas such as physical infrastructure, digital technology, spatial design, commercial business services, entrepreneurship and social service provision. Bringing together those disciplines the course will train students to create a new breed of interconnected devices and to think critically about the design and building of these devices.
