The Urban Systems Engineering program at Illinois Institute of Technology prepares students to design and maintain tomorrow’s sustainable cities.


The need for resilient cities is greater than ever, with more than two-thirds of the world’s population projected to live in urban areas by 2050 and global urban cities facing myriad challenges in managing their transportation, energy, water, and waste systems. Engineers and city planners in both the public and private sectors must approach cities as an integrated system of subsystems to efficiently manage and optimize resources.
