Transportation & Infrastructure Focus Area

As the first point of contact in almost every citizen’s journey to an opportunity—be it healthcare, employment, or education—transportation sits at the heart of all major city planning decisions. This focus area emphasizes not only mobility—how quickly and efficiently transportation systems (streets, expressways, subways, buses, bike lanes, parking, ride-hailing) could move people or goods around, but also accessibility—namely the spatial distribution of all opportunities available. It will prepare you to be a new generation of transportation planners—technically savvy, policy sensitive, and socially responsible. 

URPL-GP.2631, Transportation, Land Use, and Urban Form; and URPL-GP.2641, Urban Transportation Planning are key courses in this area (recommended to build expertise).

Urban Analytics Focus Area

Cities are becoming smarter: they’re using data to optimize services, infrastructure operation, and urban planning. Government agencies, nonprofits, consulting firms, and startups all recognize the importance of leveraging data to create effective public policy and urban plans but grapple with how to analyze large, complex datasets and apply the findings in urban planning environments. This focus area includes courses to help you understand data-driven approaches to tackle today’s most pressing urban challenges. 

PADM-GP.2505, Big Data Analytics; URPL-GP.2618, GIS and Analysis; and URPL-GP.4650, Advanced GIS: Interactive Web Mapping are key courses in this area (recommended to build expertise).
