Launched in 2011, the online UW Master of Infrastructure Planning & Management (MIPM) program prepares graduates to shape the infrastructure of the future — resilient, secure and accessible.

The program is designed for early and mid-career professionals seeking advanced training in infrastructure planning and management. Its online format also makes it convenient for active service members deployed across the country or the world. The program is popular among veterans as well, ranking in the top 10 of UW graduate programs for enrolling student veterans. 

The MIPM is offered by the UW Department of Urban Design & Planning, one of the leading planning programs in the United States and the top planning school in the Pacific Northwest. A self-sustaining, fee-based degree, the MIPM is administered in partnership with UW Continuum College, which extends the reach of the UW with a range of online and on-campus programs for working professionals and other learners of all ages.
