The “smartness” of a city is not an end in itself; rather, it is a means to make the city more liveable and to attain sustainable development. These end-goals entail harmonising a host of concerns, including social, economic, business, environmental, and technology.
Smart-City Management & Technology Major is a unique interdisciplinary programme designed to train professionals to manage these multidisciplinary concerns, and to apply the enabling technologies. This timely programme equips students to seize career opportunities arising from the global trend towards smart cities, and Singapore’s Smart Nation Initiative in particular. Students will acquire a sound foundation of the interdisciplinary knowledge that is required to address complex real-world problems. They will be able to innovate IT solutions to achieve intended business, social and environmental outcomes. Students will also have opportunities to participate in the development of cutting-edge smart city solutions.
We invite prospective students to find out more about our programme. We are also actively engaging government agencies and industry as partners, to prepare the next generation of professionals who are ready to employ smart solutions in the real-world.

SIS Research Project
Project SHINESeniors is a SMU-initiated effort to enable elderly Singaporeans to age-in-place, whereby the elderly can stay within the comfort of their homes and familiarity of their neighborhoods, and with minimal disruptions to their lives and activities. Through multi-disciplinary Research and Development (R&D) efforts, spanning across both technology and social behavioral sciences, SHINESeniors aims to enhance community care to support sustainable ageing-in-place. This is achieved by providing sensor-enabled homes and personalized home care for senior Singaporeans.
