Seminar Info: “Infrastructure System-of-Systems: An Interdisciplinary Paradigm for Sustainable and Resilient Civil Systems”
Who: Professor Ali Mostafavi, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering, Texas A&M University
When: Tuesday, April 18, 2017 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Where: Wilcox 264
Summary: In this talk, the significance and elements of a system-of-systems research paradigm is explained. Then, this approach is applied in a resilience assessment of infrastructure systems under climate change impacts study.
Resilience and sustainability of civil infrastructure systems is one of the grand challenges facing engineers and decision makers in the 21st century. The complexity of this challenge is due to the existence of multiple, heterogeneous, distributed, and interdependent systems composed of actors and physical components embedded in networks at multiple levels. To unlock the full potential of a sustainable and resilient infrastructure development, holistic paradigms need to be created to facilitate an integrated assessment of extant complex adaptive behaviors, decision-making processes, and dynamic interdependencies. To this end, recent studies have proposed the use of a system-of-systems paradigm for integrated modeling and holistic analysis in civil and project systems.

Big Water Consulting, located in downtown Seattle, provides consulting services to tribal, nonprofit and governmental organizations in the areas of project management, data collection, survey design and implementation and technical capacity building. Big Water is currently coordinating or launching projects on several reservations and within a large number of tribal communities in the Pacific Northwest, Northern Plains, Southwest and Great Lakes regions as well as Alaska. Big Water also works with a variety of Native and non-Native organizations working to promote social justice in underserved communities nationwide and throughout the world.
Big Water is currently seeking graduate student interns or employees with experience in at least one of the following three areas:
- Advanced GIS map production, including location and integration of publicly available data layers to support complex site analysis as well as development of high quality, visually appealing and impactful maps for display online and in paper form
- Database and geodatabase construction to enable integration of multiple data sources and types in a single data clearinghouse (to be made accessible to multiple programs or users)
- Support of surveys and other field data collection projects using ArcGIS and/or open source GIS tools (e.g., development of field staff assignment areas, seamless data check-in and checkout, and linkage of complex attribute and GPS coordinate data)
Qualified candidates with a demonstrated interest in or experience working with American Indian tribes and/or Alaska Native villages are invited to apply. Compensation is $25/hour and the anticipated schedule is part-time (16-32 hours), but accommodations can be made on a case-by-case basis to minimize disruption to the individual’s current academic pursuits and/or adapt to their more flexible summer schedule.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter and resume to Mary Lindeblad-Fry, Tribal Data Coordinator, at email@example.com by June 3, 2016.
Environmental Management Certificate Program
Graduate students in the Environmental Management Certificate program from across the University collaborate to tackle real-world problems with profound policy, scientific and business ramifications. Students engage in environmental challenges—including energy, climate change, food systems, depletion of natural resources and pollution—and learn to organize collaborative teams to complete a client-based project. Addressing these challenges requires an understanding of diverse disciplines.
The program spans traditional academic boundaries, allowing students to integrate broad perspectives, knowledge, skills and interconnections. Our goal is for students to achieve a coherent view of environmental issues through an interdisciplinary focus on the complex relationships among science, management and policy. Applications are accepted twice each year, usually the first Monday in February and first Monday in May.
The Environmental Management Graduate Certificate program offers students access to the University of Washington’s world-class faculty and resources across multiple colleges and schools, including the Evans School of Public Affairs, Foster School of Business, the College of Engineering, and the College of the Environment.
The American Public Power Association (APPA) awards student research grants and internships each year to university students as part of its Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments (DEED) Program. APPA is the service organization for the nation’s community-owned electric utilities. DEED is APPA’s research program that funds innovative, energy related research.
CEE 594: Computer Aided Construction (online course) is being cancelled for summer quarter 2015. It is expected to be offered during winter quarter 2016. Please check the UW time schedule to confirm class offerings closer to the start of winter quarter registration.
