Global PhD Student Fellowship in Transportation Planning and Engineering

In collaboration with the New York University Tandon School of Engineering, the Division of Engineering at New York University Abu Dhabi offers Global PhD Student Fellowships in Transportation Planning and Engineering.

Global PhD students in Transportation Planning and Engineering are enrolled at the Transportation Planning and Engineering doctorate program in the Civil and Urban Engineering Department from NYU Tandon School of Engineering, and enjoy the same privileges and responsibilities as all NYU PhD students.

PhD Students in the Global PhD Student Fellowship undertake most of their coursework in New York and conduct their research in Abu Dhabi. This enables each student to engage in formative study with an entering cohort of students, and take advantage of NYU’s world-class resources. More information about the Structure and Schedule for PhD Students in the Global PhD Student Fellowship can be found here.
