Cyber and Physical Infrastructure

Physical-infrastructure and cyber-infrastructure have historically been considered distinct areas of inquiry; however, modern cities have begun to blur these lines with the rise of cyber-physical systems.

In the face of this increasing integration, the college stands poised to make significant contributions in many areas, including:

  • air- and water-quality monitoring, modeling, and assessment
  • cybersecurity
  • communications and networking
  • power and energy
  • transportation
  • sustainability and lifecycle assessment and modeling
