Earliest start date
Cities play a critical role in addressing the environmental challenges that face the world today. The major in Sustainable Urban Environments prepares students to make cities more sustainable. Students gain an understanding of the social and technical issues in urban environmental problems, and an appreciation of the policy and planning approaches that are necessary to create more livable, sustainable, and equitable cities.
Multidisciplinary courses emphasize project-based learning, using New York City as an urban laboratory, and also examining sustainable cities in a global context.
Directed studies and capstone projects provide students with essential experience in conducting and presenting research at public forums within the School of Engineering. By the program’s end, our graduates are prepared to enter various environmental fields, including urban planning and design. They also partake in opportunities in social work, government, education, and museums.
Our students may choose to complete a 4+1 BS in SUE at Tandon/ Master's of Urban Planning (MUP) at Wagner and BS SUE at Tandon/MS in Applied Urban Science and Informatics at CUSP. Interested students should discuss these opportunities with their academic advisors prior to their junior year.
