This area of concentration covers any form of infrastructure that is an important shaper of the built environment, including transportation, storm water, drinking water and sewage. Students are encouraged to take courses that examine infrastructure from a variety of perspectives, including: planning practice and policy, analytic methods applied to infrastructure planning and operations, physical design of infrastructure, relationship between infrastructure and land use, private infrastructure providers and their regulation, and specialized courses on particular modes of transportation or types of infrastructure.
