CER 210 - Infrastructure Engineering
(3 cr.) This course identifies, analyzes and assesses built infrastructure, which is the foundation for modern society. The complex and interconnected lifecycles are investigated and demands on critical components are calculated. Students explore the nontechnical factors necessary for the functioning of infrastructure including supplies, trained personnel, public policy, ethics and cross-sector dependencies. The course provides a basis for understanding the complexity and cost of maintaining, rebuilding and developing infrastructure.
