About

With specialized faculty members from Government, Industry and Academia, the Urban Infrastructure Systems program from New York University is designed for professionals, with both engineering and non-engineering backgrounds, who are involved and/or interested in the fast growing inter-disciplinary field of urban systems management.

Overview

The infrastructure systems support a variety of urban sectors, including transportation, energy & water supply, sanitation & wastewater management,  and other essential services. 

Their sustainable development engages a wide variety of public and private sector stakeholders and greatly depends on a broad range of factors, such as public policy objectives, land use and geo-physical system characteristics, regulatory requirements, and other variables. 

Both Government and Industry presently face increasing needs for innovative capabilities of dynamic monitoring and “smart” system control to effectively meet the challenge of upgrading the aging urban infrastructure systems.

Urban populations are on the rise. Local governments, public service agencies, and urban utilities face increasing demand for greater reliability, safety, affordability and resiliency of aging urban infrastructure systems. These systems must be continuously adapted and upgraded (often with technology-driven solutions) to efficiently support the essential public services, urban development, and economic growth. 

This Urban Infrastructure Systems program from New York University is open to professionals with BS or BA degrees and backgrounds in engineering, science, public policy, management, economics, and/or finance.
