Introduction

Illinois Tech’s Master of Engineering in Urban Systems Engineering program prepares students to design and maintain tomorrow’s sustainable cities. The need for resilient cities is greater than ever, with more than two-thirds of the world’s population projected to live in urban areas by 2050 and global urban cities facing myriad challenges in managing their transportation, energy, water, and waste systems. Engineers and city planners in both the public and private sectors must approach cities as an integrated system of subsystems to efficiently manage and optimize resources.

To this end, the Master of Engineering in Urban Systems Engineering program integrates coursework in multiple engineering disciplines to prepare students with a deeper understanding of the intricacies of urban infrastructure systems and their interconnections and dependencies as they function as a system of systems.

Program Overview

In the Master of Engineering in Urban Systems Engineering program, students will learn how to design and manage urban infrastructure systems; how infrastructure engineering projects are planned, designed, funded, budgeted, and built; and how ever-increasing amounts of data can be used to design, operate, and understand more sustainable urban infrastructure systems.
