Sustainability, Resilience and Efficiency are fundamental considerations for city managers in managing urban infrastructures. Today, more than 3.9 billion people, making up more than 54% of the global population, live in cities. Urbanization is expected to continue in the coming years, raising the urban population to 6.0 billion by 2045. This dramatic increase in urban populations will inevitably increase the demand for energy, mobility (transportation), water, and other urban services in every city around the world. Without functional governance and management structures that ensure efficient, resilient and sustainable performance in cities, the current urbanization growth might become a catastrophic risk threatening the quality of life of the humanity.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MANAGEMENT OF URBAN INFRASTRUCTURES – PART 1
I liked the theory and the structure of the class, especially how it had people comping in from industry to speak.
A nice introductory course on Urban Infrastructures for everyone. Great content and explanations by Prof. Matthias Finger and his associates.
Concise and informative course about the basics of urban infrastructure systems that'll help acquaint you with the systems in your own city. Highly recommended!
This was my first external online course, and I definitely enjoyed and found the course very useful.
