The certificate in Smart Cities is an interdisciplinary program designed for working or aspiring professionals and upper-level students interested in expanding their knowledge-base in the fields of emerging urban technologies, data science, sustainable design, and public-private partnerships.

Specifically, the certificate has sequences designed for current public sector professionals aiming to expand their understanding of the impact of data and technology on their careers; technologists and entrepreneurs who understand the growth and potential of the urban domain as a market of unsolved problems; and architects and planners who understand that technology is not simply a tool but a medium that must be designed for like other aspects of the lived urban experience.

The first badges of the Smart Cities graduate certificate launch Spring 2023 and can be sequenced according to students' interests and goals. The badges are online-only, asynchronously delivered, four-week installments available to nondegree or degree-seeking students with flexible entry. Initial badges offered include Foundations of the Smart City, Technologies of the Smart City, Building the Smart City, and Living in the Smart City.
