Resolve Magazine: Volume 1, 2011

A System of Systems

Welcome to the Spring 2011 issue of Resolve—a magazine dedicated to research and educational innovation in the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science at Lehigh University.

This issue of the magazine focuses on research and education at Lehigh that support infrastructure systems. The term infrastructure has become synonymous with civil infrastructure. Yet civil infrastructure is merely one of the many inextricably linked systems that are required for society to function. Modern infrastructure also includes the systems that generate and distribute energy, those that support transportation, communications and networking, and those that enable the provision of healthcare and essential social services.

The interconnectedness of infrastructure systems calls for multifaceted solutions. One emerging research theme at Lehigh is a smarter, greener, more sustainable approach to infrastructure. Lehigh has world-renowned capabilities not only in structural engineering and materials science, but also in energy systems, communications, advanced computing, systems engineering, and environmental science and engineering. These enable us to design and develop sustainable infrastructure systems in a holistic way.
