Interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Transportation
The interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Transportation provides a structured and direct follow-on doctoral program for students enrolled in the MST program or other transportation-related master degree programs at MIT or elsewhere. The interdepartmental structure of the program allows students greater flexibility in developing individual programs of study that cross both disciplinary and departmental lines. The program is administered by the transportation faculty through the Transportation Education Committee (TEC), who are responsible for admissions, establishment and oversight of program requirements, and conduct of the general examination and thesis defense.
Summary of Requirements:
120 units of graduate level subjects, including a doctoral core program, consisting of two subject areas as selected by the student
Successful completion of the general exam by the end of academic year 2
