This session will provide engineering students with an environmental planner’s perspective on a complex resilience project, relating specifically to climate change and rising sea levels, severe storm events, and increased frequency and extent of flooding and the effects on critical infrastructure in an urban area. However, this session will not focus on theory or technology of resilience, but rather on the following learning outcomes:

- Learn what planners do
- See the relationships among engineers and planners and understand that these two disciplines
- Learn what is meant by “environmental review” as a planning function
- Practice thinking like a planner in the various roles they take on
