Interdisciplinary Program in Transportation

The Master of Science in Transportation (M.S.T.) degree program emphasizes the complexity of transportation and its dependence on the interaction of technology, operations, planning, management and policy-making. For this reason, the Master of Science in Transportation program is interdepartmental. Faculty members and research staff from several centers, departments and divisions within MIT are affiliated with the program and serve as research advisors and mentors to M.S.T. students.

The interdepartmental doctoral program in transportation provides a structured and direct follow-on doctoral program for students enrolled in MIT’s Master of Science in Transportation program or other transportation-related masters degree program at MIT or elsewhere. The interdepartmental structure of the program allows students greater flexibility in developing individual programs of study that cross both disciplinary and departmental lines. The program is administered by the Transportation Education Committee, a faculty committee responsible for admissions, establishment and oversight of program requirements, and conduct of the general examination and thesis defense.
