Safer. Smarter. Sustainable.

A new way of thinking is required to address the significant challenges facing twenty-first century cities. Today’s urban centers need clean air and water, efficient transportation, reliable infrastructure, and sustainable energy sources to thrive. That’s why we focus our educational and research priorities on the development of new construction materials and processes, advanced sensor technologies, and data science techniques. Our students are poised to become tomorrow’s leaders in resilient urban ecology and innovators in safer, smarter, and sustainable infrastructure.
