How Cities Work: Experiencing Urban Infrastructure (For engineering and non-engineering majors)

Do you really know how our cities work? Why are they designed as they are? Have you ever thought how you have drinking water at home or how the food you eat is processed and distributed? Do you know what Urban Infrastructure is?

Take the course CIVE 1200 with Prof. Matt Eckelman in Fall 2017 to answer those and many other questions that you may have. This course has been designed in a way for you to experience urban infrastructure by yourself. This course will have the city of Boston as your guide, and every week you will study a new infrastructure system in two innovative ways: first, by learning and discussing the engineering principles behind its design and operation; and second, by visiting local operation centers, city officials, and contractors that manage and maintain them.

There appears to be something wrong with this event and the time. I went there on two days and there was another class happening.
