- About Us
The ITP PhD program is for highly motivated students whose interdisciplinary interests at the intersections of network engineering, economics and policy are not met well by traditional PhD programs.
The PhD goes beyond the foundational knowledge learned in the MS to identify and tackle a big problem that pushes the frontiers of our understanding of network science and engineering.
Our society has reached an inflection point in communications, networks, energy, and security. PhD students are the ones who will understand how these fields are evolving and integrating, and will conduct the cutting-edge research needed as these fields join together.
ITP is a unique program and it is suited to PhD students with an interdisciplinary outlook and research interests that span diverse areas in new ways.
If you’re considering a PhD then you need to identify both the right discipline and the right place to pursue it. You should discuss your options with many people. Our faculty and advisors can help you think about your future, whatever it might be. Your Graduate Advisor will be happy to put you in touch with our faculty, alumni, and students.
