SMU Smart City Society
SMU Smart City Society seeks to be the one-stop platform for people interested in smart city management and technologies. Members have the opportunity to participate in hackathons, workshops and programmes to explore the use of technology to solve urbanisation problems. Our flagship events include Code for Cities hackathon and the SCULPT programme. This year we also inaugurated a Smart Cities Scavenger Hunt around our very own City!
We aim to:
- Be the bridge between academia and industry needs in the field of Smart Cities

SMU Smart City Society, was previously known as Anthill Society and was founded by the inaugural batch of students majoring in Smart-City Management & Technology (SMT), who wanted to add value to the SMT community student life while sharing their burning passion for technologies. Since then, SMU Smart City Society has evolved to target students from all faculties in SMU, and grew to encompass a wider scope of events, such as workshops, hackathons and programmes from interdisciplinary perspectives.
You will gain exposure to in-demand tech skills and smart city technologies, enhance your knowledge of the smart city ecosystem, network with industry partners and make friends with like-minded individuals!
Hackathons, mentorship/learning programmes and smart city technology workshops are just some of the activities you can look forward to when you join SCS. We also host various industry talks to allow you to network with different industry veterans and enhance your career development in the field. In addition, look out for networking opportunities with like-minded ones and embark on smart city projects together!
