Course Description & Objectives: 

Sustainable urban infrastructure systems are emerging as important issues in a rapidly changing urban environment where the world’s resource supplies can no longer match demand. In the midst of numerous other challenges, urban authorities need to realize that in order to provide a sustainable and high quality of life to local communities, optimal use of resources is of paramount importance. The increasing complexity and interconnectedness of civil and other interdependent infrastructure systems (electric power, energy, cyber-infrastructures, etc.) require inter- and multidisciplinary expertise to create, manage and maintain sustainable infrastructure systems.

  1. Thorough understanding of the complexity and interrelationships of civil and other interdependent infrastructure systems
  2. A good understanding of how urban infrastructure influences the growth patterns, development and performance of cities, in addition to being able to assess and analyze them accordingly
  3. Their ability to apply sustainability principles in the conceptualization, implementation and management of critical urban infrastructure
