ScottishPower Energy Networks is delighted to be part of the development of this new course. The University is known internationally as an Engineering Centre of Excellence, and we are pleased to be expanding our long-standing relationship with them to develop sustainable city leaders of the future.
This Masters will help graduates to understand cities from multiple perspectives – their infrastructure, economies, communities, environment – and to create solutions that tackle the big urban sustainability challenges, from the need for low carbon energy and transport, to urban regeneration.
Government and commercial interest in cities as investment opportunities, engines for innovation and the markets they create is growing dramatically, with significant demand for graduates in this field. We are delighted that the University of Strathclyde is leading the way for better cities of the future.
