This great course covers a myriad of pertinent topics, from defining the scope & boundary infrastructure to quantifying its natural resources & surrounding environment, to the benefits it brings to stakeholders & showing that every step requires planners and engineers to view things through a “systems” lens. The infrastructure built today will deliver the intended services and values for decades to come in a sustainable way.
