Smart City Training Bootcamp

Smart City Training Bootcamp Course Description

Smart city training bootcamp helps you identify the tendencies and developing problems for communities and utilities as the smart structure movement gains motion. Such evolving universal phenomena are being advertised by the transforming from conceptual design and pilot programs affecting the distribution network or customer service creativities to large scale, more diverse, and cohesive programs. Therefore, in order to stay on top of this forward movement, you need to get yourself trained on the principals and fundamentals of it.

Smart city training bootcamp provides you with insights on smart city roadmaps in cooperation with utilities and the private sector. Such use of data analytics allow you to be more informed, perform more targeted decision-making, and find a way to sustainability and more quantifiable returns on investment.

Smart City training Bootcamp

The world we are living in is going through an extreme growth, which needs constructing new foundation to provide approximately the corresponding of the existing population of the United States in a matter of a couple decades. Cities in the 21st century will comprise almost 90% of universal population development, 80% of wealth generation, and 60% of total energy utilization. It is a universal essential to grow systems that enhance the livability of cities while considerably decreasing resource usage. Smart city features bootcamp course will intends to help you comprehend the complications of cities via the application of Big Data Urban Analytics and the design of New Urban Systems for populated cities including systems for transportation, energy, food, and living/working. The plan of these systems must be strong, accessible, and reconfigurable.

Some of the Elements of Smart City:

  • Resilient city units
