The College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS), in collaboration with the Department of Public Administration and International Affairs (PA IA) and the Executive Education Program (Exec Ed) within The Maxwell School (Maxwell) at Syracuse University have created a joint 15-credit certificate program entitled the Joint Certificate of Advanced Studies in Public Infrastructure Management and Leadership (CAS-PIML). This certificate program is geared towards mid-career professionals that are interested in building on their body of experience and expanding their skills and knowledge in infrastructure planning, engineering, management and administration through course work that is relevant to their knowledge, interests, and needs.
The CAS-PIML will deliver a certificate to students in both ECS and Maxwell that addresses the planning, design, construction, maintenance, security, capital and operating budgets, environmental and social sustainability impacts and public policy considerations, of public infrastructure. Students will develop skills and knowledge that will assure awareness and competency for functional, financial, environmental and social sustainability concerns of our public infrastructure. In this context, public infrastructure is broadly defined as physical service systems, i.e. water, storm water and waste water systems, transportation, electrical power distribution and telecommunications. The certificate program will be enhanced by on-going speaker programs, executive workshops, and seminars. It will be open to students in both colleges. Applications from students seeking only this certificate will also be considered. The application process will be administered by the Executive Education Program of the Maxwell School.
