SAE 515 – Sustainable Infrastructure Systems
While open to many different interpretations, “sustainability” generally implies the optimization of economic, environmental, and social factors when developing complex infrastructure systems. SAE 515 shows students how to create dynamic infrastructure models, how to include economic, environmental, and social attributes, and how to assess behavior under disruptive perturbations. Students will use these skills to evaluate an infrastructure system of their choice.
SAE 515 meets via Zoom on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30 – 1:30 for class discussion. Students should view a posted 45-minute lecture and read a related paper before each class.
