Sustainable Infrastructure & Resilience


No part of the planet is untouched by the impact of the more than seven billion human inhabitants. Collectively, we face pressing challenges such as extreme weather from climate change, growing urbanization, and resource scarcity. These challenges make cities and ecosystems more vulnerable; triggering an urgent call to develop a sustainable, healthy, and just world. At the 2019 Annual Conference, attendees will look at the opportunities and challenges for sustainability at the convergence of built, natural, social, and cyber infrastructure. Attendees will also explore examples of community resilience and discuss how to apply best practices in their community. More about the theme.

This experience offers both personal challenge and the opportunity to build effective working relationships with your classmates - essential preparation for the year ahead. If you are looking for a challenge, are passionate about the environment and want to be a leader, then this program is for you. Students participate in the unique placement program - Credit for Product - spending one day per week working with a team on a project for an external agency. Students in the Ecosystem Management Technology program also host an annual EcoHealth conference. The class invites the public, local area residents, community groups and businesses to attend, participate and learn. If you are interested in continuing your education once you complete the Ecosystem Management Technology program, the university transfer agreements in place with a number of universities are first rate.
