Dual Master Degree of Information Management and Community Planning (CPIM)
Master the use of data to build smart cities.
The Master of Information Management and Community Planning (CPIM) dual-degree program is designed to train future professionals with the expertise to create “smart cities” that make use of data and information technology to improve the lives of community residents. Jointly run by the UMD College of Information Studies (INFO) and the UMD School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, the program allows students to graduate with both a Master of Information Management (MIM) and a Master of Community Planning (MCP).
Smart city planning has become increasingly data-intensive and reliant on information technology. The CPIM degree prepares graduates who are urban planners well-versed in information infrastructure, social infrastructure, physical infrastructure, and co-design with residents—shaping the future of smart city planning.
Located just outside the nation’s capital, students have access to all of the social, cultural, internship, and job opportunities that Washington D.C. has to offer.
