In the last 120 years, rapid urbanization has brought about an amazing societal transformation. In the past, 80 percent of the world‘s population lived in rural areas; now, the reverse is true. That dramatic population shift raises concerns about food security, access to quality education and health care, and reliable and resilient energy, water, and transportation systems, among other things. To manage these resources effectively, governments need to know how cities grow and how these various infrastructural components interact as a complex system. But what role will scientists and engineers have in remaking today’s cities for tomorrow?
