The UC Denver IGERT Program is no longer
accepting student fellows.
In light of the IGERT fellowship program, UC Denver developed a unique,
inter-disciplinary research and teaching program on Sustainable
Urban Infrastructure across four graduate programs -- the
College of Engineering, the School of Public Affairs, the College of
Architecture and Planning, and the Health and Behavioral Sciences Program in
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
The curriculum is currently
delivered at both the MS and PhD levels with courses taught across the
disciplines. Students with training in the physical sciences and
mathematics, engineering, architecture and planning, social sciences, public
affairs, and health and behavioral sciences joined the graduate program for
study at either the MS or the PhD levels.
