Tuition scholarships, teaching scholarships, and research
assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis to graduate
admissions candidates. Prospective and current students should
consult with the individual departments to obtain detailed
policies regarding degree requirements and programs. A combined
five-year degree program is offered in every engineering department. Customized concentration options in
each program may be arranged with an advisor.
Cognitive Science, Ph.D.
Associate Professor Matthias Scheutz is the director of the interdisciplinary
program. Cognitive science is an interdisciplinary effort to
understand and explain the mind. It draws on knowledge from
psychology, computer science, philosophy, linguistics, anthropology,
neuroscience, and biology, among others. Cutting across the
information and life sciences, cognitive science is a paradigmatic
multi- and inter-disciplinary research program with enormous future
societal benefits, especially as intelligent artificial agents are
becoming part of our lives.
Water Diplomacy, Ph.D.
Professor Shafiqul Islam is the director of the interdisciplinary
program launched in Fall 2011. Bringing together faculty from
the School of Engineering and Arts & Sciences as well as the
Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University is poised to
blend science, engineering, policy, and diplomacy to create a truly
integrative program in water diplomacy.
