Interdisciplinary Graduate Training

Program Evaluation and Educational Research

The aiM Program is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new potentially transformative models for STEM graduate education training. Students will develop expertise in AI and materials science through a new curriculum bridging disciplines, linked with convergent research, professional skills, and external internships. A total of 50 PhD students will be trained in the aiM program from degree programs in computer science, data science, statistical science, and all materials disciplines including materials science, physics, chemistry, and all engineering fields with the goal of broadening participation of women and underrepresented minorities by recruiting a diverse group of undergraduates and promoting retention through culturally aligned mentoring and an inclusive climate.
