CE-GY 7873 Infrastructure Systems Engineering

3 Credits
Today’s infra-systems managers and engineers need to prepare themselves with a better understanding of how network of large-size urban systems are developed-built and managed for sustainability.  This foundation level course is included as a core course for the MS in Urban Infra-systems Engineering & Management curriculum to provide broad skill set for various types of urban infrastructures. The concepts of systems engineering are interdisciplinary and can be applied to the development and operations and management of transportation, energy systems, sewage, water supply and other urban infra-systems management. The goal is to allow students to understand the benefits of applying system engineering approaches as a means of developing reliable, efficient, and resilient urban infra-systems. The course covers technical practices such as commonly used models, trade-off analysis and testing, and management practices such as risk assessment and mitigation, which make up “best practices” in the systems engineering arena. This will help engineers to start thinking of SE approach as a tool for urban systems development and management from the beginning of their careers in engineering. See detailed outline in a separate file. Students are also required to read two papers prepared for this course during first week. Course outline may be modified slightly as we move along to adjust time availability and guest lectures.

Prerequisite(s): Graduate Standing or Department Permission
