Design & Engineering
Circular Economy & Climate Change Certificate of Completion Program
November 7-9, 2023
Infrastructure refers to the broad set of systems that support our daily lives — from accessing reliable energy to accessing reliable communication; managing natural spaces to managing waste; moving people and goods to moving water — all of these systems support our society’s progress.
This immersive, 3-day conference-style Sustainable Infrastructure: Design & Engineering Course program teaches the emerging approach to infrastructure that considers both sustainability and climate resilience at every stage of design, construction, operation, and maintenance of the integrated systems that support society. The course focuses on every aspect of infrastructure including best practices in building materials, energy, water management, waste management, stakeholder engagement and restorative design. You will learn the concepts, applications, and best engineering practices to create sustainable, climate resilient infrastructure solutions that enhance the social, environmental, and economic well-being of the communities they serve.

Attending the Sustainable Infrastructure: Design and Engineering course equipped me with the knowledge of quantifying sustainability level of infrastructure projects through application of Envision standard framework by obtaining the ENV SP credentials from the ISI (Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure). I learned to look at the projects that I design through the lens of Circular Economy and realized how and where to apply the concept. The course was also very enlightening to be more cognizant of the Embodied Carbon associated with materials and equipment involved in implementation of a project. McMaster had designed a very smooth sequence in course syllabus by combination of an online interactive delivery method, lectures by professional guest speakers and up-to-date course material. I am confident that taking this course gives a noticeable edge to professionals in the field of infrastructure."
