Sustainability and Resilience: A large proportion of the global population lives in urban areas—up to 80% in North and South America—and massive amounts of resources are consumed developing, operating, and sustaining urban infrastructure. Add the unprecedented threats posed by climate change and the increasing prevalence of destructive natural disasters, and the need for lasting, large-scale solutions is starkly evident. The College of Engineering, through collaboration with other academic units, will reinforce the University’s position in the vanguard of research and discovery that can lead to more sustainable and resilient urban systems.
