Global PhD students in Biomedical Engineering are enrolled at the Biomedical Engineering doctorate program in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department from NYU Tandon School of Engineering, and enjoy the same privileges and responsibilities as all NYU PhD students. PhD Students in the Global PhD Student Fellowship undertake most of their coursework in New York and conduct their research in Abu Dhabi. This enables each student to engage in formative study with an entering cohort of students, and take advantage of NYU’s world-class resources.
