About Smart Cities and Urban Policy at École Polytechnique

Following the École Polytechnique’s tradition of excellence in the applied sciences, the Smart Cities and Urban Policy Graduate Degree is designed for students with a strong mathematical background and an interest in economics.

For those who wish to obtain a rigorous, in-depth knowledge of metroeconomics challenges and are looking to use their technical skills in strategy and leadership-oriented roles, this degree will provide the know-how to navigate the trends shaping the 21st metropolitan economies. The program involves applying advanced quantitative methods to the study of new and transforming metropolitan areas and their competitive environments.

Teaching is resolutely professional-oriented, relying on a combination of methodological teachings and real-world case studies to uncover the hidden trends guiding the evolution of specific market segments and business models.

Courses include high-level scientific master classes taught by faculty from École Polytechnique and our partner school Ecole des Ponts ParisTech.

The Smart Cities and Urban Policy program emphasizes hands-on, experimental learning by inviting you into with the worlds of research and industry, notably through four to six-month internships.

The professional orientation of the program is strengthened by the strong and mutual links with industrial and institutional partners from various and relevant fields: real estate, finance, energy, international organizations and ministries. Institutions and companies such as The World Bank, SNI, EDF and SNCF are among the program partners – to name just a few.
