IGERT CURRICULUM

The IGERT Core Curriculum consists of the following:

  • 3 skills courses (first two sections of E6915 course offered in Fall and CBS B8799 course in Spring);
  • 4 studio courses (including E6898 and ECBM E4090 courses offered in Fall, and E6891 and CUNYcourses offered in Spring – other Spring Courses TBD);
  • An interdisciplinary projects course in the Spring semester of the second year to crystallize the Trainees’ interdisciplinary thesis topic;
  • The Distinguished Speaker Series in the Spring semester

Trainees may fulfill 3 of the 4 studio courses required at any time during their PhD career.  However, the first studio course, E6898 “From Data to Solutions”, must be taken in the first semester of the program.  IGERT Trainees are strongly urged to fulfill the 3 skills courses during their first year entering the IGERT program. All IGERT Trainees must attend all of the Distinguished Speaker Series in the Spring semester. Please speak with Diana Kim or with your IGERT faculty advisor if you have any questions or concerns regarding the educational program requirements.
