Graduate Training in Wireless Intelligent Sensor Networks (WISeNet)

The purpose of the WISeNet Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training (IGERT) program is to prepare Ph.D. students for interdisciplinary research in wireless sensor networks.  Students in this program are supported for up to two years, and receive a WISeNet graduate certificate upon completion of a Ph.D. degree from one of the participating departments.

The program thematic basis is the development of intelligent sensors that process, store, and learn from data so as to improve their ability to gather information over time.  Broader impacts include unprecedented observation of environmental and ecological processes, and more effective and reliable use of sensors for defense and national security.

Trainees undertake four cross-disciplinary courses, laboratory and field experiments at participating international institutions, and specialized simulation, visualization, and virtual reality projects.  These requirements are integrated with the trainees’ specialization area, which may range from ecology and geosciences to robotics and artificial intelligence.

Training faculty are housed in the Pratt School of Engineering, in the Nicholas School of the Environment, and in the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences. Through this program, trainees and faculty also interact closely with distinguished researchers from industry, government laboratories, and international academic institutions.
