MIEN 511 - Infrastructure Planning (3 credits)
Pre-requisite(s): None; Co-requisite: None

This course addresses in greater depth aspects of planning and policy making related to infrastructure. The course focuses on planning concepts, methodologies and applications, considering and analyzing legal, institutional, financial, economic, environmental and social impacts of project alternatives with the aim of prioritization. The course will address issues such as stakeholders’ analysis and community-based participatory planning approaches. It is designed to critically examine contemporary planning and related policy practices.

MIEN 512 - Municipal Infrastructure Design (3 credits)
Pre-requisite(s): None; Co-requisite: None

This course applies the principles of hydraulics and hydrology in the design of municipal stormwater drainage infrastructure systems needed to meet urban demand and changing climate, water conveyance and distribution systems and the design of gravity sewers and pumping systems. It introduces selection of pipe materials, corrosion and structural design of pipes and modern trenchless technologies. Student must have completed an introductory course in fluid mechanics.

MIEN 513 - Systems Analysis and Optimization in Civil Engineering (3 credits)
Pre-requisite(s): None; Co-requisite: None

The course focuses on the understanding and use of systems approach, simulation and optimization to enhance and facilitate decision making and solving complex problems in civil and infrastructure engineering planning, design and management. Course includes simulation, optimization and multi-objective analysis. It covers linear programming, uncertainty analysis, and their use in infrastructure engineering decision-making. The course introduces dynamic and nonlinear programming.

MIEN 514 - Environmental and Social Impact Assessment for Sustainable Infrastructure (3 credits)
Pre-requisite(s): None; Co-requisite: None

This course covers a systematic process for conducting and evaluating environmental and social impacts, identifying consequences and prescribing mitigation measures of proposed projects, and making comparisons among alternatives in terms of such impact and sustainability. It covers consideration of legislative issues and community engagement in the process, and covers advanced approaches of impact assessment at a strategic and urban scale.

MIEN 515 - Engineering Economics and Decision Making (3 credits)
Pre-requisite(s): None; Co-requisite: None

This course covers aspects of studying the economic feasibility of engineering projects and applying engineering economic analysis for selection among alternatives and competing projects. It deals with the role and purpose and describes the steps of the economic decision-making process. It presents an up-to-date presentation of engineering economic analysis, including present worth, future worth, internal rate of return and utilization of concepts of depreciation and uncertainty in appraising engineering projects.

MIEN 542 - Risk Assessment and Management in Engineering Projects (3 credits)
Pre-requisite(s): None; Co-requisite: None

The course addresses the principles and theory of project risk management and planning. It covers the risk identification process, qualitatively and quantitatively. Also, it covers planning for risk responses, risk monitoring and controlling. The course will also discuss risk allocation in construction projects.

MIEN 510  - Direct Research Project (3 credits)
Pre-requisite(s): None; Co-requisite: None

Under the guidance of an engineering faculty member, the Directed Research Project provides the student with a meaningful capstone project/research experience. It requires that the student conduct a research topic or issue of significance to the field of infrastructure engineering. Direct research work should be ready for submission to a journal in civil and infrastructure engineering or closely related field.

MIEN 561 - Smart Cities (3 credits)
Pre-requisite(s): None; Co-requisite: None

The course aims to present students with topics and trends in sustainable and smart cities. It includes the role of information in the design of network resources and impact on urban design.

MIEN 544 - Construction Planning and Scheduling  (3 credits)
Pre-requisite(s): None; Co-requisite: None

The course introduces advanced construction planning techniques for construction projects. The course will also introduce the best practices in construction planning, earned value management, and cash flow management. Students must have completed a course in construction management.
