CE 417X - Infrastructures


Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0
Credit Hours: 3

All organized societies use infrastructures to deliver services essential to the functioning of that society, including food, energy, and water. When these services fail, society begins to disintegrate. This course provides cadets with an understanding of how and why infrastructures function; how societies develop and support infrastructures, and the relationships between infrastructures and the societies they serve. As 21st century societies cannot exist without these complex, inter- and intra-dependent infrastructures, understanding them and their relationship to society is and essential skill for leaders, managers, and citizens.
