上海纽约大学与纽约大学坦登工程学院以及纽约大学土木与城市工程系合作,推出一项新的联合博士项目——交通运输规划与工程博士项目。这也是上海纽约大学与纽约大学合作开设的第七个博士项目。

In partnership with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering and the NYU Department of Civil and Urban Engineering, NYU Shanghai is launching a new PhD program in Transportation Planning and Engineering. The Transportation Planning and Engineering PhD is NYU Shanghai’s seventh doctoral program.

“上海一直走在实践与测试先进技术的前沿,特别是在交通运输方面,”上纽大工程学助理教授陈志斌说。“选择在这里实现科研抱负的交通运输工程师,将有机会学习研究各项新兴运输技术,进一步确定未来的研究方向以及行业发展趋势。”

“Shanghai is always pioneering and testing advanced technologies, particularly in transportation,” Assistant Professor Faculty Fellow of Engineering Chen Zhibin says. “An aspiring transportation engineer who chooses to conduct research here will be able to study and work on so many emerging transportation technologies, and further identify the possible challenges.”

交通运输规划与工程的跨学科属性,意味着交通运输规划师需要利用建模数据、实地研究、经济学等多门学科的知识技术,解决现实生活中的问题。该博士项目鼓励具有土木规划、计算机科学、数据科学、环境工程,以及经济学等领域学术背景的候选人申请。

Working in an interdisciplinary field, transportation planners use modeling data, field research, economics, and more to tackle real-world problems. Candidates with diverse academic backgrounds, in fields such as Civil Planning, Computer Science, Data Science, Environmental Engineering, and Economics, are encouraged to apply.

上纽大工程与计算机科学学部主任Keith Ross表示,包括电动汽车与充电站、自动驾驶汽车、自动驾驶卡车、共享自行车和踏板车等在内的智能交通工具,都可能成为该博士项目的研究重点。“这些交通运输领域的创新,有可能将城市转变为与当前完全不同的样貌,”Ross教授说。“我们可以展开想象,也许未来10到20年,所有车辆都是电动或自动驾驶,加之配套的个性化地上地铁系统,而这些车辆及运输系统都为城市所有、管理以及布局。

”Intelligent transportation - electric vehicles and charging stations, self-driving cars, self-driving trucks, dockless bicycles and scooters - will likely be a focus of transportation research at NYU Shanghai, says Keith Ross, Dean of Engineering and Computer Science. “These innovations have the potential to transform cities into something completely different from what we have today,” Ross says. “One can imagine, 10-20 years in the future, cities where all the vehicles are electric and self-driving, with above-ground personalized metro systems where all the vehicles are owned, controlled, and routed by the city.”

该项目的博士研究生,首先将于上纽大展开暑期研究;此后将赴纽约大学坦登工程学院的土木与城市工程系,进行为时两个学期的博士课程;然后全职过渡到陈志斌博士在上海的研究小组,并在教授的指导下完成博士论文;毕业后,将获得纽约大学交通运输规划与工程博士学位。

The program will begin with a summer research rotation in Shanghai, followed by two semesters of PhD coursework at the NYU Department of Civil and Urban Engineering in New York. PhD candidates will then return to Shanghai to undertake their doctoral research under the supervision of NYU Shanghai faculty. Upon fulfilling all requirements, students will receive a PhD degree in Transportation Planning and Engineering from New York University.

陈志斌教授于2019年春季学期加入上纽大,成为长聘制预聘职位教师。其主要研究方向为充电道路的布局优化及其对电动汽车用户驾驶行为的影响,自动驾驶汽车的基础设施规划,以及先进的停车管理系统。目前,他正在与密歇根大学安娜堡分校、犹他州立大学以及韩国科学研究院(KAIST)的研究人员展开合作,分析研究可以在电动汽车行驶过程中为其充电的充电道路技术。

Chen, who joined NYU Shanghai as a tenure-track professor this Spring and will help supervise the PhD candidates, is currently working with the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in South Korea on the investigation and analysis of wireless charging lanes which can charge electric vehicles while they are in motion.

该项目的博士研究生还将与同济大学交通运输工程学院,开展关于先进的停车管理服务以及电动汽车等各种新兴技术的紧密合作。

Candidates in the program will also work closely with the College of Transportation Engineering at Tongji University on various types of emerging vehicle technologies, such as advanced parking management services and electric vehicles.

博士研究生项目(PhD Programs)

上海纽约大学为学生进行博士学习与研究提供了多种多样的机会,这得益于与纽约大学文理研究生院及纽约大学坦登工程学院等之间独特的合作培养模式。上纽大博士项目目前涵盖生物、化学、计算机科学、数学、神经科学、物理学、交通运输规划与工程领域。毕业生将获得由纽约大学颁发的博士学位。

学生的第一学年通常会在纽约度过,将与其学科方向相同的纽约大学博士生,一同攻读博士研究生项目的相关课程。课程要求完成后,学生会前往上海,在上海纽约大学导师的带领下进行全职科研工作。

所有学生均会获得上纽大博士项目提供的丰厚的资金支持,包括可涵盖纽约大学学杂费用的奖学金,以及年度生活津贴、额外的出行津贴和全球健康保险。其年度生活津贴金额与纽约大学博士项目的学生相同。

攻读上纽大博士项目期间,学生将接受国际一流水平的博士教育,并通过纽约大学全球教育体系,收获真正的全球化学习及科研体验。在上海学习期间,学生将受益于上海纽约大学提供的一流的科研环境,并在世界级研究平台上,参与各项发明、探索、培训、国际合作与创新。上海这座国际大都市亦将为学生提供无可比拟的生活学习经历。
