Electrical Engineering PhD Program

NYU Shanghai, in partnership with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering and NYU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, invites applications from exceptional students for PhD study and research in Electrical Engineering.
 
Participating students are enrolled in the NYU Tandon Electrical Engineering PhD program, complete their coursework at the NYU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and then transition to full-time residence at NYU Shanghai where they undertake their doctoral research under the supervision of NYU Shanghai faculty.

Highlights of the Program

  • NYU degree upon graduation
  • Graduate coursework at the NYU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in New York
  • Research opportunities with and close mentorship by NYU Shanghai faculty
  • Access to the vast intellectual resources of NYU Tandon School of Engineering and NYU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Cutting-edge research environment at NYU Shanghai, including the Institute of Physics, a thriving community of PhD students, post-doctoral fellows, and research associates, activities such as a regular program of seminars and visiting academics, and links with other universities within and outside China
  • Financial aid through the NYU Shanghai Doctoral Fellowship, including tuition, fees, and an annual stipend equal to stipends received by all NYU Electrical Engineering PhD students
  • Additional benefits exclusive to the NYU Shanghai program, including international health insurance, housing assistance in New York, and travel funds

Structure of Program

Participating students complete the PhD degree requirements set by the NYU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and in accordance with the academic policies of NYU Tandon School of Engineering. Each student develops an individualized course plan in consultation with the Director of Graduate Study at the NYU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the student’s NYU Shanghai faculty advisor. Most students will complete their PhD in 4-5 years. A typical sequence follows:

Summer 1
in Shanghai

border

Begin program with funded research rotation, up to 3 months preceding first Fall semester, to familiarize with NYU Shanghai and faculty as well as lay a foundation for future doctoral study.

Year 1
(Fall and Spring)
in New York

border

Complete PhD coursework at NYU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering alongside other NYU PhD students.

Summer 2
in Shanghai

border

Return to Shanghai for second funded research rotation to solidify relationships with NYU Shanghai faculty and make further progress in research.

Year 2
and Beyond
in Shanghai

border

Under supervision of NYU Shanghai faculty advisor, pursue dissertation research and continue coursework. Depending on each student’s individualized course of study, return visits to New York may also occur. Complete all required examinations and progress evaluations, both oral and written, leading up to submission and defense of doctoral thesis.

Application Process and Dates

Applications are to be submitted through the NYU Tandon Application portal, within which students should select the Electrical Engineering PhD as their program of interest. Applicants will be evaluated by a joint admissions committee of New York and Shanghai faculty. Application requirements are set by the NYU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and are the same as those for all NYU PhD applicants, no matter their campus preference; however, candidates should elaborate in their application and personal statements about their specific interests in the NYU Shanghai program and faculty.

The NYU Tandon Application portal is now open for Fall 2021 admission, and the deadline is December 1, 2020. Applications are only accepted for Fall admission.
