An Introduction

The Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems (ICIS) is a research and education center located at New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. Infrastructure is a key foundation for our quality of life, economy, jobs, and environmental sustainability. Our activities support the discovery of new insights and interdisciplinary approaches to planning, building, and managing civil infrastructure systems to meet their social and environmental objectives. Current areas of research include infrastructure security, risk communication and management, and the sustainability of urban areas. See more about ICIS.
