The University of Trento is recruiting students for a new community-oriented and interdisciplinary post-master programme, starting September 2016. Due to several requests, the deadline for applications has been extended to June, 22nd 2016 at 4 p.m. (GMT +2). Scholarships are available.

SCoDeM is part of the Italian Cluster on “Smart Cities, Smart Communities and Social Innovation” and is aimed at creating the innovative professional figure of the Smart Community Designer and Manager. Such figure is equipped with the methodological and technological skills needed to design, build, coordinate and monitor communities of users engaged in socially impactful projects. Smart Community Designers and Managers can rely on a wide range of interdisciplinary competences, which enable them to manage and consolidate online and physical communities at a local and translocal level. Smart Community Designers and Managers are greatly in demand on a job market which is increasingly pervaded by a widespread interest in the topics of social innovation and of the involvement of communities by companies, public corporations and nonprofit organisations.

Activities

SCoDeM involves a 1500-hour workload, inclusive of face-to-face teaching (around 10%), laboratories (around 15%), a study period abroad (around 10%), an internship (around 40%), seminars and individual study (35%).

Attendance

Activities will take place in the period between September 2016 and September 2017. Attendance is compulsory. In particular, students are required to attend at least 70% of the hours related to face-to-face teaching and internship.

Target Audience and Admission Requirements

SCoDeM targets people with the most diverse backgrounds (computer science, social sciences and humanities), who are interested in carrying out socially impactful computer science projects with a multidisciplinary approach.

To apply for SCoDeM, students must have an MSc or an equivalent degree.

Students who will attain an MSc by October 31st 2016 are also eligible for admission, upon provision of a statement signed by their thesis supervisor, certifying that the MSc will be obtained by the above-mentioned deadline. If selected for the course, such students will figure as admitted with a reservation, until they actually attain the MSc degree.

There are no limitations related to disciplinary fields. Good computer skills are required, ideally gained at university. Moreover, as the course will be taught in English, a good knowledge of the English language (B2 level) is a compulsory requirement.

The enrolment on SCoDeM is incompatible with the enrolment on any other study course.

Selection of Candidates and Deadline for Applications

Candidates will be selected through the evaluation of their CV, publications (if any) and of the motivation letter they will provide. Candidates might be interviewed, if considered necessary by the Committee.

Applications must be submitted online by June 22nd, 2016 at 4 p. m. (GMT + 2). at
