Designing Smart and Secure Communities

Program Information
Faculty: Graduate Studies
Degree: Certificate
Field of Study: City/Urban, Community and Regional Planning
Description Making communities more intelligent and safer is an increasingly important issue as citizens expect ever increasing levels of “smartness” from all levels of government, while also feeling secure in their everyday lives. There is currently a great deal of controversy and subtlety in this area. Aggressive measures like video surveillance on every street corner may provide security, but at the expense of individual liberty. This would be antithetical to the goals of a smart community. To address these issues, the Faculty of Environmental Design is launching a new graduate program that provides valuable theoretical and practical insights into how to be both safe and smart. It draw on substantial expertise within the University of Calgary, augmented by experts from sources including the Safe Design Council®.
