Smart Cities Berkeley is a cross-departmental student working group in U.C. Berkeley’s Department of City and Regional Planning. We are interested in exploring the intersection of urbanization and technology, understanding how cities can evolve by leveraging information and communication technology, and discussing related research trends in this space across campus and beyond.
For the Fall 2012 semester, we are working with Professor Paul Waddell to organize a 2-unit course. It meets on Mondays from 12:30-2:30 in Wurster 214B. In this class, we will have guest lectures, student presentations, readings, and collaborative projects exploring topics such as:
- Smart Mobility
- Smart Infrastructure
- Smart Living
- Smart Governance
- Role of Big Data
- Underlying Technologies
- Policy Challenges
- and more…
Previous Smart Cities Berkeley efforts include:
- Spring 2012: A 1-unit, student-run course in the Department of City and Regional Planning Mondays, 11am – 12:30pm, 214B Wurster. Participation included students from The Department of City and Regional Planning (DCRP), The Department of Architecture, The Haas School of Business (Haas), and The School of Information (iSchool).
