Urban Systems and Smart City 


Why focus on Urban Systems and Smart City Development?

The city of Chattanooga has emerged as a pioneer in urban renewal and sustainable development. As part of this renewal an extraordinary infrastructure has been put in place that includes high-speed, high bandwidth information networks that connect a large number of citizens and businesses to the internet. It allows for more effective transportation systems; improved energy efficiency, production and delivery; and impacts urban development. Some of these potential benefits can be realized with current knowledge, tools and technologies. Many more remain to be discovered and realized by new developments.  As a regional partner, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has many ties and collaborations with the city of Chattanooga to further improve these systems, and offers many graduate degrees that can focus on these issues.
