Infrastructure in Real Cities!!
The University of Colorado Denver seeks PhD students in Engineering,
Architecture & Planning, Public Affairs, and, Health & Behavioral Sciences
to work on dissertations pertaining to the development of sustainable
infrastructures in cities worldwide.
PROGRAM SUMMARY: Our program seeks to integrate innovative technologies in
various infrastructure sectors (water, energy, transport, waste,
buildings, etc) with urban planning, public policy and participatory
community research to achieve urban health and sustainability goals.
Students from all the participating disciplines in this program will have
the exciting opportunity to work on real-world sustainability projects in
cities along the Denver Front Range in Colorado, USA, and/or in our sister
city, Chennai, India. We are presently partnering with three cities to
assist in water, energy, climate action and health projects.
We started the program a few years ago, and it is going quite well. Our
students like the truly multi-disciplinary and hands-on approach we have
developed, including new courses, joint dissertation advising, hands-on
real world projects, etc.
