What makes a Smart City? How to find a career path.
The White House just announced a $2 trillion bill to repair the crumbling U.S. infrastructure that would create millions of jobs to the economy. Many of these new jobs will focus on smart city technology to repair crumbling bridges, pot-holed roads, and the kinds of power and water line issues that immobilized the whole state of Texas just last month.
