Sustainable Infrastructure
3.00
Undergraduate

It has been said that “infrastructure is the backbone of nations,” and that “it is a society’s inventory of systems and facilities that allow it to function properly and smoothly.” We will walk through infrastructure topic areas – energy, water, transportation, communication, natural resources and ecology – and frame the discussion around the key issues to consider and evaluate in planning for a sustainable and resilient infrastructure. This course is an exploration into methods, materials, processes, technologies, practices, and operations which play a part in making infrastructure sustainable. The intersection between policies necessary for sustainable infrastructure and political, economical, social, societal, and cultural factors will also be examined. Class discussions will center on three of the largest challenges of our times: 1) rapid urbanization; 2) existing scarcity of basics like clean water, clean air, food and land, all of which gets exacerbated by rapid urbanization; and 3) the inability and/or unwillingness of governments to anticipate problems and plan in advance of these phenomena.
