The technological evolution of construction and infrastructure systems engineering in the last few decades demands a new generation of modern engineers.

Our students become those engineers — professionals who understand the accelerating pace of technology and how it impacts architecture/engineering/construction practice. They know how to build and manage civil infrastructure projects and systems that excel in safety, quality, operational, environmental and other requirements. But more than that, they learn to advance the cutting edge of technology.

Construction and Infrastructure Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech acts as the platform for technological change in the industry. As a result, our graduates help their organizations work smarter and understand the impact of emerging technologies on their practice. We teach our graduate students advanced technological approaches and methods and encourage them to research and develop new ones, always with a focus on the human dimension that enables them to understand how their ideas impact people and processes. Students participate in state-of-the-art fundamental and applied projects in the construction and infrastructure systems engineering areas of information technology and systems, data and system modeling and visualization, automation and robotics, infrastructure sensors and sensor systems, risk analysis, and other advanced technology-based areas.

The interdisciplinary nature of construction and infrastructure systems engineering encourages students to supplement their graduate program with courses from other areas at Georgia Tech, including computer science, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, building construction, and industrial and systems engineering.
