Transportation and Infrastructure

Transportation and infrastructure focus on moving people and goods from one place to another, and the apparatus for modern living. The vehicles involved, the roadways, waterways, and airways used, the methods of propulsion used, and how buildings fit into each environment are a few of the subjects studied.

We still do not fully understand how different elements of cities interact with one another. We can try to understand how cities are wired and how to improve them, so that they withstand future catastrophes.”
