Complex Transport Infrastructure Systems (CTIS) Program
(Will not be offered in 2016/2017)
The Complex Transport Infrastructure Systems (CTIS) program is unique, bringing together the tradition and rigor of a Master's in Engineering with the insights of an MBA. The CTIS course builds on three key domains: engineering and project management, financing and contracts, and policy and institutions.
The CTIS curriculum has been developed in a coordinated manner by three top Portuguese universities, Technical University of Lisbon (IST), the University of Porto (FEUP), and the University of Coimbra (FCTUC), in association with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The program is housed in Lisbon at the Technical University of Lisbon.
Built on a challenging program of ten disciplines, it enables contact with one or two major international projects, mainly by means of documentation and possible presentations by some of their responsible experts.
CTIS prepares students for professional careers involving all aspects of the conception, construction, financing and exploitation of complex transport infrastructure systems. Top ranking students are encouraged to apply.
Students should expect dedicated facilities, the latest technological equipment and access to major international scientific databases. While there, they will have opportunities to interact and learn from faculty, researchers, invited speakers and fellow students from across the globe.
A few corporate fellowships are available, covering the value of tuition. Students applying to the CTIS degree will automatically be considered for these fellowships.
For practical information on studying at IST and living in Lisbon, please see the International Section of the IST website.
