The Graduate Program in Computational Transportation Science (CTS) at the University of Illinois at Chicago invites applications from prospective doctoral students in management information systems and business information. CTS is an emerging discipline in which principles of economics, management and information and decision sciences are applied to the field of transportation. As a National Science Foundation-funded Integrative Graduate Research Education and Traineeship (IGERT), CTS engaged students and faculty from multiple disciplines in collaborative research to solve a broad range of transportation problems. CTS IGERT fellowships provide a stipend of $30,000 annually as well as full tuition and fees, plus additional funding for international research experiences and domestic travel.
Students must apply BOTH to a participating doctoral program (i.e. management information systems or any area of business administration) using the UIC graduate student application process AND directly to the IGERT program. Fellows will be selected based on students records and research interests, as well as balance among participating programs and faculty. Promoting diversity in the sciences is integral to the IGERT mission and members of underrepresented minority groups are especially encouraged to apply. U. S. citizenship or permanent residency is required.
