Multidisciplinary Science

Ph.D. programs in Architecture, Engineering, Humanities and Social Sciences, Management, and Science offer a wealth of opportunities for doctoral study with focused IT research.

In addition, for highly interdisciplinary research, an IT Track is available in the Multidisciplinary Science Ph.D. program. The IT Track is designed to allow a student to work with faculty from multiple Rensselaer departments and schools.

ITWS - Ph.D. in Multidisciplinary Science

The IT Track in the Multidisciplinary Science PhD program is designed to prepare students for a career in interdisciplinary IT research. The IT Track requires a technical core coupled with a concentration that provides the context for the student's research. This concentration may incorporate one or more disciplines in addition to its core IT components. The IT Track focuses on research – creative and original enough to be recognized by scholars in the student's areas of concentration, both in academia and industry.
