The MS in Urban Analytics & Geodesign provides students with interdisciplinary urban research and design, incorporating spatial data science, urban informatics, geospatial technology, and sustainability. This 30-credit, STEM-designated MS program leverages data-driven technologies in identifying and addressing major issues our cities continue to face, such as urbanization, climate change, inequality, and resource depletion.
Collaboration with the Jefferson Institute for Smart and Healthy Cities offers students unparalleled opportunities for research and industry experience. Addressing climate change, public health, pandemics and other challenges by incorporating urban analytics, computational design, and smart technologies into urban environments is the next frontier within the profession.
In this highly innovative program, next-generation designers and researchers of the built environment learn through a combination of advanced urban analytics, spatial data science and geospatial technologies. Students work on real projects in a highly-collaborative fast-paced, hands-on learning environment. Upon graduation, students will have the skill sets necessary to address complex design and planning problems with powerful data-driven analytical and visualization tools that foster interdisciplinary collaborations.
