Wonder makes us


Time to rethink, redefine – restruct our built environment.

The University of Arizona will be the first university to develop a robust university-wide ecosystem supporting research, teaching and service for the built environment, defining a new fully integrated discipline leveraging knowledge and research from all Arizona colleges.

This capacity development effort will be built upon existing strengths such as public policy, environmental sciences, transportation, optical sciences, management, planning, data sciences, public health, geography and materials. The research foci, to be determined through a series of formal discussions with faculty across the campus, may include livable cities, the trillion sensor future, crisis response, technology and changing design processes, decision policy and built environment lifecycles.
