I am recruiting highly motivated master's and Ph.D. students in transportation at Penn State Harrisburg under the M.S. program in Civil Engineering and the Ph.D. program in Engineering Systems.
For the Ph.D. program: Master's degree in Civil Engineering (focusing on Transportation) or a Transportation-adjacent field (such as Industrial Engineering, Systems Engineering, or Computer Science). Students with a master's in Urban/Regional Planning (but with a Civil Engineering undergraduate degree) may be considered in some circumstances.
For the M.S. program: Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering (focusing on Transportation) or a Transportation-adjacent field (such as Industrial Engineering, Systems Engineering, or Computer Science). Students with a bachelor's in Urban/Regional Planning may be considered in some circumstances.
GPA of 3.3 or higher.
Strong background and interest in statistical and econometric modeling and transportation/urban planning.
Please refer to the program's website (M.S./ Ph.D.) for a complete list of qualifications.
To apply, you must submit an online application to the Graduate School.
Please refer to my research interests and past work to determine if we are a mutual fit. If you need additional information, please email me (email@example.com), indicating your research interests, potential research topic(s), and specific questions, if any. Please allow at least 1-2 weeks for a response before following up.
Admitted Ph.D. students will receive funding that includes a tuition waiver and a stipend that covers living expenses. Admitted M.S. students will receive partial funding at a minimum. They will also be able to work extensively on multiple projects and publications and present their work to a national/international audience through conferences.
