Sustainable Infrastructure Systems

Challenges that state and local public works directors face in providing essential infrastructure services (e.g. water, sewer, transportation, utilities) while at the same time satisfying state and local sustainability goals related to the environment, economic development, fiscal responsibility, and public safety are the foci of this course . Several state and local officials serve as guest lecturers, and in some instances they subsequently work with the students on their term team projects addressing a local problem in their community.
