Courses | Outreach
Cross-disciplinary course is a prerequisite for each IGERT Fellow and participating department. In general, at least one course from each Core Area is the minimum for the IGERT Fellows to be familiar with, and can be used to satisfy the PhD degree course requirements. To ensure a diversity of coursework, at least 12 credit points (typically 3 to 4 classes) must be taken outside of the student’s home department or in the cross-cutting course category (part 4 below).
"The IGERT program is intended to establish new models for graduate education and training in a fertile environment for collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries. It is also intended to facilitate diversity in student participation and preparation, and to contribute to a world-class, broadly inclusive, and globally engaged science and engineering workforce."
