项目介绍

The interdisciplinary doctoral program in transportation provides a structured and direct follow-on doctoral program for students enrolled in the Master of Science in Transportation or other transportation-related master’s degree programs offered at MIT or elsewhere. Outstanding applicants without a master’s degree can also be considered for admission to the doctoral program. The interdisciplinary structure allows students great flexibility in developing individual programs of study that cross both disciplinary and departmental lines. The program is administered by the Transportation Education Committee, which is responsible for admissions, establishment and oversight of program requirements, and conduct of the general examination and dissertation defense.

The interdisciplinary doctoral program in transportation requires completion of at least 120 units of coursework in a program of study proposed by the student, the successful completion of a general examination consisting of both written and oral components, and the submission and defense of an acceptable dissertation. MIT graduate-level subjects taken to fulfill the requirements of the MST degree may be included in the doctoral program.

Students are required to take classes in Transportation Systems Analysis and select two subjects from one of the following five areas of focus — Demand, Performance and Optimization, Planning and Policy, Networks, or Logistics — to build the core knowledge.

Examples of coursework for each of the five areas include:

Transportation Systems Analysis
1.200[J] Transportation: Foundations and Methods 12
Select one of the following: 12
1.202 Demand Modeling
1.208 Resilient Networks
1.260[J] Logistics Systems
11.478 Behavioral Science and Urban Mobility
Demand
1.202 Demand Modeling 12
1.205 Advanced Demand Modeling 12
Performance and Optimization
1.203[J] Applied Probability and Stochastic Models 12
15.093[J] Optimization Methods 12
Planning and Policy
11.478 Behavioral Science and Urban Mobility 12
11.526[J] Comparative Land Use and Transportation Planning 12
11.540 Urban Transportation Planning 12
Logistics
1.260[J] Logistics Systems 12
15.764[J] The Theory of Operations Management 12
Networks
1.208 Resilient Networks 12
6.268 Network Science and Models 12

Graduates of the interdisciplinary doctoral program receive a PhD in Transportation, although students may petition for other MIT graduate fields of study as their degree designation, subject to approval by the Transportation Education Committee.
