The UC Denver IGERT Program is no longer accepting student fellows.

Graduate Program

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.
