Graduate Certificate in Infrastructure Engineering Management
The Graduate Certificate in Infrastructure Engineering Management is designed for engineers who want to learn management techniques to aid them in dealing with external stakeholders when working on large scale infrastructure projects.
The program builds upon the College of Engineering’s excellence in areas such as engineering management, civil engineering, and environmental risk analysis. Courses focus on decision making, planning and management and explore the impact of regulations on work with public funding and how contractual relationships dominate its execution.
Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be skilled at managing the flow of public resources, integrating an array of projects into a long-term program, and incorporating public values and participation in infrastructure decisions. Credits in the Graduate Certificate can also be transferred towards the MS Engineering Management with a concentration in Infrastructure Engineering Management.
Designed to provide the necessary business knowledge for further study in the Engineering Management advanced courses. Students will have the opportunity to analyze issues dealing with various aspects of management. In addition, the required writing assignments should aid in developing critical thinking and written communication skills.
Covers Systems Engineering processes and skills to integrate user needs, manage requirements, conduct technological evaluation and build elaborate system architecture, to assess risk, establish financial and schedule constraints. Course provides pedagogically sound approach to the subject matter. Any graduate students involved with new product development, technology development and/or integration will find this course useful.
Covers assessing condition and performance of transportation, water resources, and utility distribution infrastructure. Provides support for decisions on scoping and sequencing facility maintenance, repair, upgrading, expansion or replacement.
Covers coordination of infrastructure systems with multiple integrated projects through concept development, regulatory, environmental and economic screening, and then through design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance.
Covers adjusting sponsoring agency plans and program for external statutory and informal inputs, including regulatory approvals, environmental assessment, interested and affected party stakeholder concerns, life cycle sustain ability, and resource allocation.
Group project to produce an engineering-intensive submission for approval by a regulatory agency, addressing compliance with regulatory, codes and professional standards and resource requirements. The student team, with diverse backgrounds, will prepare and present the report to the designated entity, following the procedures and protocols that it has published.
