What's New

The infrastructure systems that underpin our society and ensure our quality of life are constantly at risk. Further, these systems are expanding with growth and technology advances requiring a new level of professional management. The Master of Infrastructure Planning & Management (MIPM) teaches professionals to master the methods and core skills required to sustain and ensure resiliency of major infrastructures against both man-made and natural disasters.

As part of this program you will learn a blend of skills in analysis and strategic planning as you explore how threats that range from climate change to mass urbanization, smart networks, transportation and information systems, the consequences of aging infrastructure, and extreme weather events impact interconnected and complex infrastructure systems. Moreover, graduates will gain the understanding necessary to develop plans that reduce vulnerabilities and increase infrastructure resilience.
