Minor program for Smart Infrastructure Developers

A minor study program for Smart Infrastructure Developers can be a valuable addition to your educational journey, especially if you're interested in emerging technologies, urban development, and sustainable infrastructure. The minor also exploits some of the competencies already acquired in the major educational roadmap. It lets the students view some studied subjects from a new perspective. Smart Infrastructure Developers are required to obtain an overview of intelligent infrastructures and their role in modern urban development, an understanding of the principles of integrating technology into infrastructure to enhance efficiency, sustainability, and functionality, an exploration of how IoT devices and sensors collect data from infrastructure components, learning data analytics techniques to extract valuable insights from the data collected, examining innovative transportation systems, including intelligent traffic management, autonomous vehicles, and public transportation innovations.

The minor program for Smart Infrastructure Developers will equip you with a well-rounded understanding of intelligent infrastructure development, including the technologies, practices, and principles involved in creating more efficient, sustainable, and resilient infrastructure for the future. Be sure to check with your educational institution for specific course offerings and requirements for this minor program.

The Minor is organized within the Italian national project “Engineering for the Transitions”. The partners of the project are the University of Napoli “Federico II”, the Polytechnic of Bari, the Polytechnic of Milano, the Polytechnic of Torino and the University of Bologna, the University of Padova, the University of Palermo, the University of Roma La Sapienza. The project has the patronage of the Italian Minister of University. The Minor is organized as an extension of the MSc for graduating students or as a post-integration program of the MSc for graduated students. The Minor for Smart Infrastructure Developers provides an educational path that includes activities up to 30 credits. The student selects modules from a portfolio dedicated to acquiring methodologies to propose and support the development of solutions for the efficiency, security, resilience, and sustainability of networks and infrastructures. The selection of the modules is submitted by the student and approved by a Steering Committee. The Study Program in Transportation Engineering and Mobility has framed a roadmap that automatically matches all the requirements for Smart Infrastructure Developers.
The roadmap ensures the acquisition of a Digital Badge.
