Health and Built Environment

Course Overview

This course will critically examine the complex interplay of engineering, development, and changes to the built environment, and their impacts on population health from community to global levels. Students will employ transdisciplinary and complex systems approaches to better understand how changes to the built-environment can impact health outcomes, and thereby foster an awareness of the unintended outcomes of their work and the need for intentionality in planning, design and implementation of engineering projects. This course will also cultivate an appreciation of the important, but often overlooked, need to develop social infrastructure in tandem with the development of physical infrastructure.
