The objective of the course is to present the concept of smart city from a theoretical and practical perspective. The classes will show how cities are operate as an organism - social, economic, political; by using innovative technologies, they can cope with the complex challenges of urbanization. The classes will discuss the most important challenges faced by cities: social, demographic, ecological and economic, but focusing mostly on their economic aspect. It will show how cities have dealt with these challenges historically and throughout the industrial revolution, and how the fourth industrial revolution, through the use of digital solutions, changes existing solutions and transforms a traditional city into a smart city. A smart city will be shown as a platform where, using a properly designed infrastructure, data is obtained and analyzed for the implementation of complex and interdependent city services.

|Metody i kryteria oceniania:||
The basis for passing and the final grade will be the average of two grades: grades from partial tests; evaluation of the presentation. To pass the course, it is necessary to get a positive grade for each of these elements.
A quick test will summarize each block of classes. We plan 3-4 tests per semester. We will score each test as a percentage, absent is 0%. Finally, the average of the partial grades achieved will be calculated. (0-50% -2, 50% -60% - 3, 60% -70%; 3 +; 70% -80% - 4; 80% -90% 4 +; 90% -100% 5)
Two (or three, depending on the size of the group) classes will be devoted to student presentations. The presentations will show examples of smart city solutions. The presentations can be prepared independently or, with a large group of students, in teams of two.
